      Hey,

      Have you tried to download the file again? Maybe the download was not complete.

      Cheers

      The solution was to copy the .msi out of that folder, rename it, and then install it from there.

      Latest version still doesn't install properly on Windows 7 64-bit.

      Hi,

      Sorry to dig up such an old thread but... I can't install Equilab on my new Windows 7 64bit installation.

      I get: "Error 1317.An error occurred while attempting to create the directory C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\PokerStrategy.com"

      I don't care for the start menu item of course but I can't continue the installation without it it seems.

      I've tried everything: re-downloading, taking ownership of all folders, running as admin, turning anti-virus off...

      Hi luizsilveira,

      thank you for your post.

      I might have found the solution for your problem in a microsoft knowledge base article.



      Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK. The Computer Management window appears.

      In the left pane of the Computer Management window, expand Computer Management (Local), expand Storage, and then click Disk Management.

      In the right pane, right-click the disk drive where you want to install Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio .NET, and then click Properties. The Local Disk (Drive Name) Properties dialog box appears.

      Click the Security tab, and then click Advanced. The Advanced Security Settings for Local Disk (Drive Name) dialog box appears.

      Note:
      On a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP, you must also follow these steps to access the Security tab after you follow steps 1 through 4:

      Start Windows Explorer.

      On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. The Folder Options dialog box appears.

      Click the View tab.

      In the Advanced settings list, click to select the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.

      Click Apply, and then click OK.

      Close Windows Explorer.
      In the Advanced Security Settings for Local Disk (Drive Name) dialog box, click the Permissions tab.

      In the Permission entries list, click SYSTEM, and then click Edit.
      The Permission Entry for Local Disk (Drive Name) dialog box appears.

      Click to select the Allow check box for all the permissions in the Permissions list, and then click OK.

      In the Advanced Security Settings for Local Disk (Drive Name) dialog box, click Apply, and then click OK.

      In the Local Disk (Drive Name) Properties dialog box, click OK.
      Close the Computer Management window.

      Hi mrk, thanks for the reply.

      Everything on both drives was already with "allow" ticked...

      Update:

      Instead of ticking allow for "System", instead I did it for myself. Windows complained a lot, security risk bla bla bla, I went on with it.

      Now the installation passed that part but in the end I got:

      "Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly component {6D321E57-3E99-3B87-BF23-2CDFF3361CB4}. HRESULT: 0X80070BC9"

      Aparentemente é algo a respeito do .NET framework. Vou fazer um update reiniciar o PC.

      Worked like a charm, apparently not everything was duly updated on my windows.

      Thanks!

      Hi,

      I'm new here. When I try to install Equilab on my Win 7 64 bit I receive a message that it's not compatible with 64 bit. Is there a specific version for 64 bit? What could I do?

      Thanks

      Hi, VectraXX
      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com !

      I don't have an answer, and since it is Friday, it might be possible that you'll need to wait until Monday.

      In Windows 7 isn't there a way to install 32Bit software ?

      While you're waiting be sure to check out the other features of PokerStrategy.com -- like the free poker money for example.

      Best of luck at the tables!

      Hi VectraXX,

      I'm under the impression that it is working with 64-bit windows.

      Can you post us a screenshot with the error message shown during installation?

      Thanks.
