Windows 7: I don't have permission to access the file!

ok, I downloaded it and I can freely open it. I have permissions by default.

Yeah, it closes saying "Error: Loading Driver"
It's is normal for me as I don't use that Motherboard.
But the face that it's crushing on you aswell, probably means there is some problems with that file...

The program crashes saying it cannot load the driver.. but at least it attempts to open now.

Hey, that software has a lot of neat fuatures.. Thanks.
- No idea about the crashing.. maybe it's because you already modified the right-click menu to use the other take ownership button? It's running for me on Win 7 x64 -maybe it's worth it to send a message to the developer of the program?

Good luck with your Windows 7 adjustments

I do not think the its crashing because of the bios version.. the software starts up and you have to choose some options before installing the bios update.. Whether you choose to update the bios or not, the app's gui should still run I would think..

But perhaps I am wrong and you are right.. since I already updated my bios might this cause the apps drivers not to load? Hmm I dunno.. what if I needed to re flash the Bios again because I want to reset everything to defaults... it seems the tool should run again.

Then again.. I never saw it run in win 7.. only XP.

DarkPhoenix, is your Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit?

You can get the GUI to load.. no error about drivers?

It's 64 bit

You may be thinking that the app is not compatible with 64 bit.. this may be true but It seems to me if the board is 64 bit compatible, their app should work..Thats what I would think anyway.. Dunno.

I have tried running it in compatibility mode for xp and a number of others.

I don't have permission to access my C drive!
