Sisoft Sandra 2011 Trial Not responding!

Hi
I'm using W7 Ultimate 64 bit and I could not start Sisoft Sandra Lite 2011a (17.20).
The process of installation finishes without any problems, but when I run Sisoft Sandra nothing happens. It shows start screen, but after that nothing happens. When I click on Sisoft Sandra window, it said "Program Not responding" In task manager I see 2 processes connected with Sisoft Sandra.
Any advice.
Thanks

Welcome to Seven Forums ehasanov. I have been using Sisift Sandra for years, and have had this happen twice when updating to the newest version. Going back to the previous version always worked again, and then when the next new version came out, it again worked. So twice I ended up leapfrogging a version. BTW I currently am using Sandra Lite 2011 (17.20) with no problems, so it is hit or miss depending on individual systems.

You can try the previous version, or any version before that.

Try right clicking the program and "run as administrator". No guarantees, but I've seen some programs need that elevated status to work.

Windows 7 update killed Sandra

Hi

I just thought I would chime in here. I know how misery loves company.

I have been working on installing a SSD as the boot drive for my Windows 7 system. This involved setting the system up to use AHCI, so I had to do some fancy stepping since my system was installed using IDE.

I used Sandra to bench my system. Everything was fine until I let the system update on Tuesday. Now suddenly Sandra won't work any more.

Go figure.

same problem here! I updated everything to the latest 17.30 version and still no luck...
I guess Sandra is a dead fish in the windows 7 x64 water right now.

I'm still using it on x64 right now, updated to new version yesterday. It's possible something is blocking it connecting to the server (it wants to update that price engine part). You might try specifically adding it to the exceptions list of your firewall or AV product. You might try searching their knowledgebase:

searched their FAQ: nothing
contacted their support: they adviced an update: did that: changed nothing
opened the firewall to this software: no change
reinstalled it with the installation program using Admin rights: no change
disabled price engine and rank engine: no change
added exception to AVG: no change

no joy so far:

I had Sandra 2009, Sandra 2010 before and never any problem. Sandra 2011 does not seem to like me...I guess I have to say bye bye love
