Preferred Solution: Lockup after install of build 7077

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys,

I've used Win7 as my main OS since I installed 7077 but I figure now's time to upgrade to a newer build. I have 7127, 7201 and 7229 all 64 bit editions. Couple questions. Should I download 7137? Is it worth it? Which build of the following three listed above would you choose? My specs are

Dell Studio 1735
4GB Ram
Core 2 Duo T5750 2.00GHz
Intel 965GM Graphics
IDT High Def Audio

Replies are gratefully appreciated!

So, I've been using Build 7000 but went back to Vista x64 because my surround sound didn't work. You think the 7077 build will fix that? It's the onboard 5.1 surround sound (asus board). Also, should I wait for the official RC or just suck it up and deal with the surround sound issue in 7000 or 7077?

Now, what should I do once I install either build? I'm just so bored right now that all the fun is gone after it's installed. Any suggestions on what to do in Windows 7?

A:Should I install Build 7077 or 7000?

Wait for the public release of the RC - release candidate version. It's only a few weeks away.

So, fresh install and build 7077 is super slow. I mean it shouldn't be this slow at least I don't think so.

It always takes 10-15 seconds to open up menus and things and the CPU is constantly at 30-50% load and RAM always at 25% according to the cpu/ram % gadget.

Any ideas?

Perhaps the build you picked up has a malware payload attached to it.

Hi all Just a couple of points Both x- bit versions W build -- OK W build -- few glitches install had to Vs 7077 Build x-64 better 7077 anyone. 7100 for me uninstall some pre-existing drivers on quot Upgrade quot before it would install -- and you've guessed it -- couldn't re-install the drivers again On quot New install quot drivers wouldn't install in Build 7100 Vs 7077 x-64 anyone. 7077 better for me any way --even in compatability mode some rd party apps ran fine in build but quot Crap out quot in NET is totally hosed and bollixed up in -- hopefully this will be fixed by RTM Cannot install ANY Net apps -- worked fine in rd party TV application doesn't run AT all in -- I NEED this for viewing composite video -- WMC is fine for normal TV viewing Performance wise both builds seem OK However if this is RC Build 7100 Vs 7077 x-64 anyone. 7077 better for me it seems a couple of steps backwards from build as far as installability and compatability are concerned I'll leave it for a little while longer but my gut feel currently is to revert back to build until some fixes or quot Service packs quot come out Cheers jimbo

Did anyone have major problems with build 7077? For me it was so bad, that I had to put vista back on the machine. I never had any major problems with build 7000. 7077 had nice features, but none of my movies would play or for that matter even be recognized as movie files. Most of my software didn't work right, but the graphics problems that 7000 had were gone in 7077. Don't get me wrong, I did like what I saw in 7077, but until at least RC1 comes out, I will be using vista 'til then. I just hope 7077 isn't a preview of the RC. It's funny though that vista has been out for how long now and I just found a bug in the x64 version that M$ say they are going to make a patch for in an upcoming update. We will have to wait and see about that one.

I have installed on my notebook the W7 build 7077...
It works fine in the first week, I was really liking it (I still like... but not so much).
Now, the problems decided to come...
When I type my password, many times the computer don't leave that "WELCOME" part... others, the screen gets all black with the signature "Windows 7 build 7077" written on the right corner...
I thought it was a problem with my notebook, with the DigitalPersona driver, but I disabled and the problem persists, I uninstalled, and the problem still with me
When I start the computer on SAFE MODE, it goes perfectly, but when I start it on the 'normally' mode, it really kills me...

Anybody can help me?

I'm going to install 7, but I was kinda waiting for the RC. I don't know if build 7077 is RC or not, so if you guys know, that would be good... Also, is it good? I mean, does it have good performance and stability? And is it buggy?

A:So is build 7077 RC and is it good?

Reading around the forums will get you the answers that your searching for. In short I don't know whether it will be the rc but very much doubt it. As for stability and performance it is spot on in both departments. Just look around the forums like I say and you will get all the answers and more.

When upgrading from 7048 to 7077 the installer freezes on the last step (copying files and settings) at 35% every time I've tried it. It suggested removing ATI Catalyst Install Manager and Control Panel, which I did, but it still hangs (although this time at 47%). I have tried several different configurations (with/without CCC and Install Manager, do/don't go online for updates, etc). Every time I have to force restart the computer and it will begin to restore the previous version.

My system specs are as follows:
AMD Phenom X4 9850
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD4830
Kingston HyperX 2x2GB Dual channel RAM

What speed did you burn the DVD at? Because the Install.wmi file is rather large, a fast burn speed may produce read errors that can only be notice upon usage. I suggest 2/4x speed to greatly reduce the risk of write errors.

Hi Build - Padlocked Folder 7077 guys Got a question noticed that of my folders in an external HDD had padlocks on them I had performed a clean installation of yesterday and after installation I don't remember seeing them there Suspected that it probably was an ownership thing as mentioned here Hard disk Icons -- Sahred Disks confusing Build 7077 - Padlocked Folder with Padlock Item So I actually changed Build 7077 - Padlocked Folder the ownership of the folders to me for some reason it was set to be owned by the Administrators group but the folder remains padlocked Any idea why this is the case What makes this folders different from the rest in the screenshot above is that I actually added these folders to part of the library and messed around with Homegroup so not sure if that caused the padlocks I've since removed myself from the Homegroup and even attempted to remove them from the library but still can't seem to get rid of the padlock Any one else here facing a similar situation Thanks

The build you are using will expire. If you purchase a copy, you can use it forever.
No, you will probably not notice a big difference between the RC and RTM versions.

My first post on here, have been reading plenty though

I installed build 7077 hoping to be rid of the intel graphics adaptor crash when waking up from a blank screen, build 7068 also suffered with this, and now this new build also does it.

And also my newsleecher no longer runs now, has worked fine on all the other builds.

I get this error "an internal exception occured"

Just hope this does'nt become the RC build, as things are breaking that were fine in builds 7000 and 7057.

I upgraded (not a clean install) to 7077 today from 7048. I reinstalled the latest Realtek Driver, and my sound is staticy on files played from WMP 12.
I had this issue before on both an upgrade and clean install of 7057, which is why I went back to 7048 among other reasons.

Anybody have a tip, trick, or fix for this? I have tried different sound settings, some are worse than others, but there is static or skipping sound in all media files.

Thanks in advance!

A:Upgraded to Build 7077 - Staticy Sound now

Not a good move to upgrade. These builds are not designed for upgrades and so will not remove the previous files completely.

Hi there
I can't give you a reason as to the error but this might work.

Try starting Windows in SAFE MODE as you've done but disable Networking and then shutting down. This should clear out any "Stuck" services. Switch off Firewall and uninstall any AV software whilst in SAFE MODE.

Incidentally while you are logged on in save mode see what starts automatically and stop those you don't need -- there are posts around suggesting what you can stop running automatically.

When you try again in "Normal mode" start DISCONNECTED from any network and switch your wireless card off.

Whenever I delete the recycle bin, the "full" trash icon never goes back to "empty." If I restart it will come back as empty. But once it fills up again, it does the same thing. Only a restart makes it empty. Tried turning the icon on and off, didn't help.

At first I thought - who cares, RC is around the corner. But now it's become one of those dumb little things that bugs the hell out of me. Any ideas?

After reading in the forum that 7106 is not worth the d/l, I went ahead and d/l 7077. I am currently running 7068 x64 after having upgraded from each previous build starting from 7000.
For some reason, 7077 wont upgrade from me. It stalls after the first reboot and the last portion of the install, I believe it said "adding devices..." I never see the percentage build up, just the smalls dots going back and forth.
Killed the install and had to use the rollback option.
I did see the sticky above and wonder if it could be my nvidia driver, I have the latest official ver. which is 185.20.

A:Unable to install 7077 x64

You're not the first - and no one is quite sure if it is just that particular build, that particular release, or something left over from multiple upgrades that is simply getting in the way.

I personally somehow instinctively knew to go with a clean install - and it was worth it. Of course, with my setup, it is a lot easier than, say, on a laptop with a single drive....

It can freeze anywhere from while windows is loading to when browsing Overclockers to playing a game. Its very perculiar.

I have tried all sorts, from re-seating the RAM and CPU to updating all drivers and am thinking about clean install of windows.

I have been reading somewhere that a shabby PSU could be the problem, I have been wondering about this as mine came 'free' with my case, so it can't be owt clever.

By the way I have enough cooling, side fan blowing onto CPU then a rear case fan sucking air out.

Also Event Thing in windows shows nothing expect for when I have done a hard reset.

Anyway I'm just after some ideas as to what it could be because its driving me mad!

My specs are below:

- AMD Phenom II x4 955
- Asus M4A785TD-V EVO Mobo
- 4GB Micron DDR3 RAM
- ATI Radeon 4670
- 1x LG DVD RW
- 1x 500GB Seagate Drive (SATA)
- 1x 250GB WD Drive (SATA)
- Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

The power supply is: EZCool 500W Socket 775 ATX500 JSP??

If you need any more info please ask, I'm totally stuck.

ALSO I can run XBMC for hours watching films but if I go to play a game it simply just freezes after a few minutes of gameplay.

This may not be a solution yet but some other things to check.
1. Do you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard?
2. I would look into the memory setting within the BIOS. To freeze up solid like that sometimes mean that the memory may not be clearing. You could try a RAM program just to see.

Hope this helps a little .
Til next time.

As it occurs prior to Windows loading, drivers and programs can be ruled out for now.
Issue may be chipset drivers not installed correctly or a BIOS update is needed.

A:spybot lockup after re-install

If Spybot seems to freeze up during an update, it could be because the server that you are downloading the updates from is swamped with update requests. You can choose another server. I have always had good luck with the Australian server.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601?

An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know).

Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack?


A:Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?

You can normally install icons anywhere you like, on any machine or system which uses them, they are merely small graphics of various types. Unless the "Icon-pack" is using software to install something else, ( in which case be careful what it does), you can install it anywhere.

Some "Icon-packs" make extensive changes to system files, are dependent on the system to which they are installed, and best avoided.

I have Build 7057, and I will upgrade to 7077 soon. What are some changes I will notice?

A:What's new in 7077?

You won't notice much cosmetic changes. The main changes are in the hardware driver support & stability. There are a lot more device drivers so more hardware is supported/installed without the need to install seperately after installing 7077 (e.g. anything from 7000 to 7057 would not recognise my Wireless LAN, 7068 & 7077 install straight away). Also you'll notice increased performance, startup/shutdown is now faster, Media Center runns a lot more smoothly. Those are just a few i've noticed, if you read through the different posts regarding 7077 you'll get a really good idea of what you're asking.

CCC, a problem but I followed the recommendation provided to rectify it uninstall the offending software to be reinstalled afterward and continued with the upgrade Now I can't get access to my video card controls which has caused me some problems with some games that need video card control rather than game control of their effects making them essentially unplayable went from - fps to - fps at least until I can get back into the control center Now since my computer is primarily a gaming platform this creates a huge problem for me By Problems with 7077 and CCC, what can I do? not having access to the CCC catalyst control center I can't run my favorite games so I need Problems with 7077 and CCC, what can I do? to correct the issue as quickly as possible but I can't simply roll back the change Problems with 7077 and CCC, what can I do? or reinstall build over build at least I don't think I can please correct me if this is wrong so I'm really only left with two options figure out how to make it work correctly under or Uninstall Reformat and reinstall everything a task that would take me over a month in my free time I guess I'm asking then if anyone has had this problem with the CCC and whether or not anyone has managed to get it to work correctly and how If not what options do I have that might allow me to return to build without wiping my program drive I have a seperate drive for programs so I don't have to erase them all however last I heard Win and or Vista doesn't have the ability to scan for installed software and repair of the links and shortcuts without actually reinstalling everything Any help would be appreciated Thanks Greg

A:Problems with 7077 and CCC, what can I do?

I had the same problem with my 4870. You have to remove the drivers for the card that are downloaded during the update of the system that happens when you install, they are 1.1 can't remember the exact name, to remove them got to the control panel where you can see the latest updates made to the system.
Once you've done that you will be able to install the latest catalist drivers.

I wasn't sure if it would actually work, but I installed 7077 on my friend's old IBM Thinkpad. He received it from a friend for free, running XP with a ton of unneeded programs bogging it down. It took about six minutes to fully start up. After putting 7 on there, it dropped to about 25 seconds. Most of the drivers weren't in the install, but after connecting it to the Internet through Ethernet, Windows Update found six 'updates' in about half a second...all of them being the missing drivers.

It's not near as fast as 7 could be, but it's running a hell of a lot faster than it was before. It also scored a much higher WEI than I thought it would (graphics aside).

A:7077 on an old IBM Thinkpad

You didn't state the Thinkpad it a T43??

I have Win7 running on my T43 and it's not bad at all. It seems to have the same CPU specs as you have in your Pics but I have 1.5GB of memory. It's pretty cheap to upgrade memory. My T43 seems faster than any Atom netbook I have played with.

I can't wait to vLite (or better yet, 7Lite) the final Win7 version to reduce the unneeded parts of the OS to help make this old laptop a valuable piece of gear for snappy surfing and email.

The taskbar is very weird. These are the symptoms:

1) When it is on the top, it extends past the normal height and is as "tall" as is "wide" when it is docked on the side. Everything looks right, but the mask extends too far down, making things there (the top of my browser, icons) blurry.

Sometimes this goes away when I move it back and forth to different positions... or sometimes:

2) After moving it around, ill have it on the top of my screen. But there is a taskbar mask on the left side of the screen too! So the bar is at the top and the left inch of my screen is randomly blurry (from the taskbar mask).

Have any idea what can cause this? Im fully stumped.

Anyone else running x64 7077 able to use folder.jpg's properly? Worked fine in 7000 but now all of my folders display multiple thumbnails instead of the folder.jpg. Tried deleting thumbs.db, and duplicated issue in another user account.

A:folder.jpg not working (7077)


To clarify about folder.jpg: in previous versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7 build 7000) when an image file called folder.jpg is placed in a folder, it automatically becomes the default folder picture/thumbnail for that folder (without needing to specify it manually via the Customization screen).

What's happening for me now though is instead of seeing the folder.jpg image as the folder's thumbnail picture, I see the live contents thumbnails instead (the same as if there were no folder.jpg in the folder).


I'm not really looking for a solution at this point, but confirmation from others whether or not the function works.

If someone who has 7077 and can confirm that folder.jpg works properly (ie shows as the folder thumbnail for a folder that contains two or more image files), please chime in as that will help me decide whether I should reinstall or wait out the next build. Thanks in advance.

After a long struggle with my DIgital Cable PID, which I've since solved, I was very excited to upgrade my main HTPC to the latest Win 7 Beta. I was planning to do this with 7068. However, in the mean time 7077 came out. Problem is, 7077 breaks Arcsoft's Total Media Theater - which makes it a deal breaker. Cyberlink is not an option, as we have a fair amount of HD-DVD's. I have no problem rebuilding a 7068 installation (which amounts to re-cloning my working Vista installation, and then upgrading it from there so I can keep my HD content), but I'm wondering if I'll miss anything.

I know that all the hardware I have on this system has been supported since 7000, so I'm really concerned about performance bugs - especially Media Center bugs.

Installed the update (not a clean install). After about 1.5 hours, everything was back up and went into 7MC. Asked if I wanted to use previous settings, I said yes. Get a Playtime install screen, then get error (although playtime was already installed). Went to the next screen and get my PID key request, type it in and says error (I know which keys to use, installed it about 5 times now).

Try several different options as far as uninstalling playtime, try going through 7MC setup, continue to get the error.

My question is, will the PID registration automatically fail if Playtime is not installed. I'm worried that I now have a useless PID as some others have reported. Installing Windows Vista Home Premium from the reinstall disks hoping I can get the PID to work. If not....wife is gonna kill me.

A:win 7077 x64 and Adobe Flash Player

Yeah I'm having the same problem and I can't determine what's causing it. Flash streaming videos (such as BBC iPlayer) will play smoothly for around 30 seconds and then I will get a constant slight video judder which is most noticable on camera pans. Does this sound like what you are experiencing?

I've tried different GPU drivers (nVidia 8800M GTS) and different versions of the Adobe Flash player, but to no avail. It happens in both IE8 and FF3. Bandwidth of video stream has nothing to do with it either. Didn't experience this in 7068.

A:7077 much faster than the official RC (7100) ?

Don't know anything about that, but on my computer there was no big difference in computers performance between build 7077 and RC ...
And I must also say that I installed 7077 threw Windows upgrade and the RC as a fresh install.

Anyway, IE worked just fine on both 7's.

Welcome ChodeOfDoom,
Did you use an external hard drive?
You can use chkdsk (checkdisk) to repair the hard drive.

I am attempting my first build and have assembled the system. It post fine and i can access bios . When i attempt to load win 7 OEM it does not see hard drives and i can not load from supplied disc from gigabyte. I have only one sata hard drive and 2 sata dvd burners. I have disconnected every thing from the sata ports but the hdd and one burner. I have read about using f6 to load drivers but am unaware of how to do this and if it would even help.

Building a new computer the disk I ordered doesn?t not have sp1 . I have a disk of sp1 that I got from Microsoft when Sp1 came out .Should I install sp1 after install of windows 7 before running windows update?

A:Install on new build

The best would be to install all recommended updates (including SP1). In the case that your internet is damn slow, you can use SP1 disk right after installation if you want to and it is really from microsoft. If you are unable to do something, you will be prompted before the install.

I'm currently running 11082 and Windows update is attempting to push 14257 out to me but it's failing to install. The update downloads ok, but when I restart I boot into the windows repair menu instead of the upgrade screen. I've tried to do an automatic repair, but when attempting that I get the message "the drive windows is installed on is locked"

The only thing I can do is reboot, at which point I boot right back into 11082 with no problems.

I have no idea why the update isn't installing and I don't even know where to go look for an error message or something like that.... any help?

Hi cls and welcome to Tenforums.

First, turn off Fast Startup

To understand what this is/does (it was first introduced in Windows 8):
“Fast Startup (aka: hybrid boot or hybrid Shutdown) is a new feature in Windows 8 to help your PC start up faster after shutting down. When turned on, Windows 8 does this by using a hybrid shutdown (a partial hibernate) method that saves only the kernel session and device drivers (system information) to the hibernate (hiberfil.sys) file on disk instead of closing it when you shut down your PC. This also makes the hiberfil.sys file to be much smaller than what hibernate would use (often 4GB or more). When you start your PC again, Windows 8 uses that saved system information to resume your system instead of having to do a cold boot to fully restart it. Using this technique with boot gives a significant advantage for boot times, since reading the hiberfile in and reinitializing drivers is much faster on most systems (30-70% faster on most systems tested). If you have a motherboard with UEFI, then fast startup will be even faster.”

Problem is, when you shutdown your system and then restart it, if your "hibernated info" is corrupted, W10 will try to load it, and can fail with an error that the drive is locked.

Then, grab the esd file from your 14257 download:
Show hidden files

Use the tutorial here to convert to an ISO, then mount the ISO and run it from within your current 11082. Make sure all other drives and external devices are disconnected when doing the upgrade.

*Please make sure you have imaged your drive before doing this, in case you need to go back.*

Hope that helps!

I am about to rebuild my pc. I will use the same drives, case and ram but the psu, cpu and motherboard will be new.

Can I re-install my win 7 using my Lic Key or will I need to buy a new one?

Any suggestions welcome.

A:Re-build PC then re-install. Lic Key ?

Hello there.

If you have a Retail key, no problem at all. you'll be able to activate it without major issues.

If you have an OEM key, you'll have to activate by phone, call Microsoft and explain the fact that you change the Motherboard and you like to use your OEM key in the new one (you'll probably have to tell them that the motherboard died, because i don't know if they'll let you activate the key if you just "change the mobo because you wanted to")

In response to a thread made earlier I thought it only right as I'm a big fan of win to quot stick up vista) 7077 and most unlike yet (most responsive stable quot for this build and the flack it received especially in the thread title After reading through 7077 most responsive and stable yet (most unlike vista) the post I can honestly say I have had none of the problems reported and find the build to be the most productive to date with regards to speed and stability Reading through the masses of 7077 most responsive and stable yet (most unlike vista) posts the 7077 most responsive and stable yet (most unlike vista) general gist I get from it all is that are very happy with this build also To quick too often are people ready to shoot down the operating system instead of looking at how they are set up eg overclocks patches hardware software etc etc and one can only assume if nobody else has these problems they must be user generated Windows in my opinion is far more superior in every sense of the word than any other operating system has been at this stage of it's life There can be no comparison Sorry jimbo I just cant agree with your thread title

A:7077 most responsive and stable yet (most unlike vista)

I totally agree, Windows 7 is by far the best way forward. It's been too long since we had such a stable & fluid OS and if RTM (when finally out) is anything like build 7077 then I say bring it on. With the added support for various hardware & the sheer increase in performance (even with my low spec lappy LOL) it's just the bees knees.

Hi all
I wanted the Office 2007 addon - save documents in pdf and xml formats.
Downloaded from Ms office site.

Was prompted for WGA -- it didn't actually do anything as WGA isn't yet functional for Windows 7 -- I'm running build 7077 X-64. It just tghen passed me straight to the download.

Installed the add on.

Then I got please activate Windows -- you have 27 days (?) left to activate windows.

It activated OK but I'd ALREADY activated windows -- and where did the 27 days come from -- normally it's 30 days.

However under some circumstances I've seen (different) Windows builds - not necessarily W7 only) saying "To continue using Windows it must be activated within 3 days".

To the more mathematically challenged 30 -3 = 27 -- co-incidence perhaps.

After re-activation - no further probs -- but found it strange behaviour -- no extra hardware added etc.


A:WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) is Broken (7077)

I've not had the issue with WGA on any build of Windows 7 & i have installed Office 2007 fine. I'll try downloading the file your on about and see anyway.

Also, the 3 days remaining usually occurs when you choose to 'Activate Windows Automatically once online' during installation.

Hi all. So I just built my new pc, loaded it up and tried to install windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Now when I get to the part to install windows on my SSD there is a warning at the bottom that says windows cannot be installed to disk 0 partition 1(this partition says EFI next to it) ,2 or 3. when ever I click the warning it says, "windows cannot be installed on the disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS. Windows cannot be installed. The partition is an EFI system partition (ESP)". I have a 256GB Samsung SSD that I bought off ebay. What does this mean?/ what can I do to fix it?

A:Cant install windows on new build

In the BIOS set the 'legacy' optical drive to become first boot. Also here you can format all showing partitions and then delete them all until only one remains.Then add the RST. Another reason that a new SSD may not be recognized by the bios is that it may need to be initialized and quick formatted to NTFS - 4096. This can be done if there's another drive to boot from in the system or you have access to another computer. Admin Tools Computer Management Disk Management Right Click on the Disk.

I have read the manual for my new EP -UD P Gigabyte board and still don't get exactly what happens when you try to install Windows after completing you build Do you need to have the BIOS configured for RAID EVEN IF YOU DON quot T USE RAID at install if you plan to use it in the future Also what are the NOOB problems everyone runs into when building a new system build and Install 7 setup on new or is it idiot proof I am reading conflicting posts here and there and the manual is just not clear on this Install and setup 7 on new build It seems to me if you don't have RAID configured at install you have to do a repair or clean install to get the capability I would like to enable all features the st time What advice can you give a NOOB What's the hardest or most confusing item on a new build Also I got a molex to P connector for my MOBO Is this advised

A:Install and setup 7 on new build

Hello Nate,

If you are not using RAID, then you will not need to set RAID in the BIOS or load RAID drivers. If your hard drive is SATA, then you would want to make sure that you have ACHI SATA select in the BIOS instead of RAID or IDE for the controller. Refer to page 52 and 55 of your motherboards's manual for more on this.

If your PSU has a 8 pin connector to use, it would be better to use it instead of the 2 molex converter. Refer to page 23 of your motherboards's manual for more on the power connections.

Hope this helps,

I just finished assembling a new computer and while trying to install XP it gets to the point where it starts copying files and then freezes( at different points each time I try). Is there something Im missing or forgetting?

Relevancy 41.71%

I have been using the Omni Form Program since 1998. When I upgraded to Win 7 Pro a few years ago it installed without a hitch.

Now with a new build and a fresh install of another Win 7 Pro, it will not load.

Splash screen comes up for install. Click install and "Nothing"

Compatibility mode did not help.

I realize I have some other options. Virtual XP, and others, but I would prefer to keep business apps together.

What has changed? My other machine is still up and running but getting long in the tooth. I have many and more custom forms that I use and dread the thought of starting over with other software.

Is there something I'm over looking? It worked before with Win 7 Pro, why not now?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance


A:Program will not install on new build.

Have you tried running the install as a administrator? If not I would try that and see what happens. As Ive mentioned before in previous threads about programs not installing; By default; Microsoft designed Windows 7 default permissions so that even if your user name is a administrator; you still will have to give your user name the proper permissions to install programs. Im thinking at this point that is why your program wont install. So try and see if you can give your user name the proper permissions and try installing it again. If still nothing post back and we can go from there.

Looking for advice....

I am a tech that is contracted out to many many clients (car dealers, hospitals, distribution plants, restaurants, etc...).

Each client has an array of software that they run locally on Windows XP or Windows 7 clients. Often, I need to rebuild a machine for whatever reason. With so many clients and different types of software, there is no universal type of software that they use.

I am looking for a way to do this remotely and build a method to remote deploy software.

Most of these clients are on our VPN, so remote access is possible, I just need a way to launch a single executable and have it do the myriad of tasks that are required for a single install of application X.

Anyone with any ideas, please give me some advice as to where to start looking.
