That's great new Autlense.

Before we blame the computer... , you might try OPTION TWO to see if the program will allow you to easily do so.

Sounds like you may have clicked on the wrong download link. Check to be sure that you clicked on one of these boxed in red below instead at the link in your post above.

Autlense,

Uninstall the program, and download the new version I added to the tutorial for your 64-bit Windows 7. It should work for you afterwards. The other one doesn't work with 64-bit despite what it said.

Autlense,

Did you uninstall the other version first, then install the FxVisor64.msi file for 64-bit Windows 7 (download button below)?

If so, do you have UAC turned on?
