Title: Xim1 with windows 7?
Post by: jdrees on 11:52 PM - 12/12/12
Hey guys, I've been still using the xim1 and loving it to this day.  However my computer I run it on just died.  I was running windows xp on the now dead computer.  So I figured I'd just download the xim1 software for my laptop which runs windows 7.  However my Mcaffe AV won't let me download it.  If I turn off Mcaffe and try to install the software, I get "error opening file for writing." 

My question is does the xim1 software not work with windows7?  If it does, what can I do to get this program installed?  Thanks for any help as I've now spent an entire days banging my head on this.   Perhaps getting the xim edge will work better.

Thanks for the reply.  Well after a couple days I finally figured out that turning of the user account control settings in win7 as well as shutting down Mcaffe did the trick.  Got it back up and running.  Think I'm still going to break down and upgrade to the edge.  Looks nice.

Maybe next year, after all the possible bugs and updates.
