roadx, AS I Understand it.

Windows7 home ed, 64 bit wont run 32 bit programs. You will have to upgrade to Office Pro7 and Windows XP Virtual.

Good Luck Roddy

Nope, old XP or upgrade. that's it.

I spent $3900.00 each for 4 HP dv7,s and NONE of the old programs worked and some did not after $800.00 upgrades.

Enjoy Roddy

WOO HOOO finally got it going!!
 i had to run it in compatibility mode win 95. i thought i tried that? i know i tried quite a few different combo's.  well i hope this helps someone down the line.
i like computer puzzles but when you get to the point to where you thought you tried everything. that frustrating

to run humminbird in compatibility mode windows 95

to go the program icon or short cut. right click, then go to properties. select compatibility tab at the top. check the box, run this program in compatibilities mode for: then click on the checklist and select  windows 95   go to the bottom and click apply.

so... simple but over looked trying 95. tried other OS versions but this is the only one that would work for me in win 7.

good luck,  let me know how it works out.
