Windows 7: Acronis True Image 10 Build 4942 works

Acronis True Image 10 Build 4942 works

Hi All,

In case people were wondering, users of Acronis True Image 2010 can get around the 'blocked' software message which Windows 7 puts out (this version was the last build - 4942 and was last updated in 2007). To get it working, read the following post in the Acronis Forum at:


You basically have to rename the executable and change a registry key, after I did this, True Image 10 came up in Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1 (which is what I run).

I have not tried creating an image as of yet, but plan to do so later this evening.

Acronis True Image 2011 has full support for Windows 7 (and is only $30-40, less with upgrade mail in rebate or competitive upgrade, etc.

Hope this helps...

I see the steps you recommended to run ATI2010. I just don't understand. I have it loaded on the machine in my specs. It runs fine out of the box. I run ATI2011 on another similar rig with no problems. Does windows some time block these programs?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I just completed the backup of approximately 210GB of data on drive C: with the following results:

Initial Backup took 45 minutes, verification took approximately another 41 minutes.

Size of the backup is 156GB (using normal compression)

Here is the size comparison using Windows 7 Backup

WindowsImage Folder size is 222GB (don't know about the compression in Windows 7 Backup)

The time was less using Acronis True Image 10 than Windows 7 Backup.
