Windows 7: LOGMEIN no longer has a FREE version

That's a bummer. LMI was a great tool I enjoyed using for some clients of mine. I enjoyed the free version because it had just enough features for me to perform my job without spending more money. Teamviewer is great and all, but I loved the professional aspect of LMI without paying. I was so used to LMI Rescue from previous jobs so sticking with their free alternative was excellent.

Looks like I'll have to stick with Teamviewer.

Griffin Knob and Logmein

When I moved to WIN 7 the Griffin Knob can no longer be used to control the server end of the connection. It works fine using XP. Thoughts welcome. The Griffin knob does work well for local control such as audio volume control.

Also, still using FREE logmein with no issues.

Hi wa3gin, welcome to 7F!

Did you install it in Compatibility Mode? It says here that the program runs in XP and Vista.

You can try going to the properties page for PowerMate and setting the compatibility for Vista SP1 or SP2; Shown in Option One in the above Compatibility Mode Link, make sure run as administrator is checked.

If that doesn't work try OPTION TWO - Set Compatibility Mode of Application using "Troubleshoot compatibility".

If that doesn't work try a reinstall in Compatibility Mode; Make sure you have the latest program version. Fourth down on the right here: Original USB PowerMate Manager (v2.0.1) for Windows XP & Vista
PowerMate strongly suggests removing any previous installs. If you follow this method; Right instead of Left click on the program, there should be a context menu listing for "Install in Compatibility Mode" then follow the settings in Option One of the tutorial, make sure run as administrator is checked.

Reviews from these two Amazon sites report that functionality with the griffin is hit or miss with win7, it seems to be okay with win8, 8.1.

Depending on the variables between machines one could expect the free version of LMI to continue to work.

Check this out: Ammyy Admin - Free Zero-Config Remote Desktop Software, Remote Desktop Connection and Remote Access Software

I used to use LMI, then tried something else that give me fits until I pitched it right after discovering the above.

Thanks for the ideas. I did set it up to run in compatibility mode and click on run as administrator; as well I set it for Vista SP1...WIN7 was an option but I didn't try it. I then set the Powermate to duplicate mouse clicks instead of F9 and F10. Now the server sees the Powermate and I can tune the radio with one knob and adjust the volume with the other. We're happy.

Best,
wa3gin

Ammyy download was blocked by CHROME as being malware infected. That was disappointing!

Today while I was setting up a fresh installation of Win7, IE reported something wrong with the Thunderbird download and would not accept it...and lately I have not been able to use Firefox to download iTunes. My biggest problem, however, recently came along with the iZarc installer and I ended up having to reset Firefox to get rid of strtpoint.
