I talked with my IT guy this morning, and told him everything that you are having trouble with and he thinks it a problem how your OS settings. Recommended to have a someone look at you system that knows Microsoft, as chaging setting could get you in more trouble.

Charlie,

Could you check the default option when running the installer program (the .exe after unziping). There should be a box like "Protect my computer and data from unauthorized program activity". Clear that box.

Roger2525,

This is the first time I've run into a problem with Vista(other than running slower than I think it should).

I'm sure when we find the problem it will be something simple. Fortunately, I have 2 sources for local assistance. The daughter has been able to load the program successfully on 2 of her computers including a laptop. I will see her this evening and she can compare her settings to mine.

Not true, Roger... Been running all my machines here on 7 since it came out, and never an issue, with GMFC. Mach, CamBam, etc... Just stay away from 64bit on any version...

Charlie,

Are your PC personal ones? or company machines with some weird restrictions?

To Everyone,

My problem with GMFC running under Windows 7 has been resolved.

This morning Gilles sent me a new version of the program with the latest installer. The new version has allowed me to finally install GMFC. Time to get to work and learn the program.

Thanks Gilles for hanging in there and taking the time to resolve the issues.

So this is an installer problem... I just made a quick test for Charlie, but it seems that I have to upgrade to a newer installer and update the building process of GMFC....

I am in the process of completing my foam cutter and Hobby CNC Pro board. I will be getting GMFC Pro. I have a separate wire power supply. Do I need the timer board or any other interface boards to run?

Thanks
Dennis
