Hi Mike

I have gone through your thread here and this seems to be a very bizarre issue. I would recommend the following:

Run the application in another compatibility mode, like Vista or Windows XP (right click the anrb.exe file and use the tape on top). See how it behaves.

You may also try updating your W7 installation with the latest Service Pack from Microsoft which was released last week. It is rather large and takes a little bit of time to install.

Just curious but is the build on the PC the original build installed by Dell?

Let me know how this works out.

Paul

Hi,

Updated the latest windows 7 service pack and still the same.

Yes the DELL is brand new and nothing has been changed.

Mike.

Is this the only program that is crashing like this?

Is the computer working well for all other tasks?

Right-click on the Airnav folder in Program Files.. is it set to read-only per chance?

Mike,

Must be really annoying you now - FWIW you have my sympathy!

I use Win 7 32-bit on a Dell desktop XPS420, with IE8 and ANRB runs fine. My airnav software is installed in c:/Airnav. Unfortunately I'm not a PC expert, however if you would like to cross-check any settings I'm happy to help in this way.




Everything about Airnav is fantastic. Airnav can do no wrong. Airnav is perfect. Airnav is divine.

Hi Mike,
            You have probably read my previous post regarding windows 7. I have now got as far as loading the drivers but, windows 7 won't allow it, it tells me the drivers are not digitally signed, another problem. however, I did read an interesting comment  by VFR COPILOT in their support section regarding vista & windows 7. I have also tried running compatibility modes, service pack, admin, etc, does not work.
 I know, nothing of what I have said helps with your problem. As far as I'm concerned I've stopped trying to install it on my laptop. I'll stick to using it on windows xp, ( 3/4yr old computer) crazy is'nt it.

delconair,

If your using Windows 7 64bit then you need the drivers download from

http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/ANRB/drivers/ANRB64bitDrivers.zip

Otherwise it will say they are not signed but you cna ignore that and continue.

Hi AirNav,
                I did download the drivers but windows wont accept it on the installation to radarbox, refers to code. 28. Code.52. not digitally certified. I've tried all sorts to get round it.. hopeless... I may in time take the laptop to a computer specialist. Let him try his luck, Iv'e given up, it's got me beat. Iv'e drained the coffee pot and what was left of the paracetamol. Ps. It was the 64bit I downloaded as per system.) Thanks for the reply.

                                                   Delconair.

Yes, 64-bit Windows 7 can be pain with unsigned drivers.. I can help you but sounds like you are at your wits end.

If you press F8 before Windows 7 boots, it will have a menu option to allow you to boot into a mode that will allow use of unsigned drivers. This is a quick fix option.

To perm. fix issue there is a file that exists that will allow you to sign the driver yourself and you won't have to always boot via F8 'trick'

the DELL is brand new

Mine aswell.

RB is running fine from the beginning I started it running late december on my new (Dell) Windows 7 PC. I needed some help from support with finding and installing the drivers but after that when all was installed correctly, everything runs fine and correctly.

Hi,

Thanks for all your help. Yes all other programs work.

After the service pack update for win 7 ANRB does not crash now straight away when going on the internet. However it now has the old fault of freezing when it does, don't get the ANRB has stopped working error screen.

Just looked on the program files and the read only box was coloured in with a light blue colour. Whta's that all about rather than being blank or ticked ?? Removed the blue so the box is now white.

I would love to know why it works on some and not on others ??

Mike.

Light blue means some files or folders within the directory are set to read-only. This may explain why information was not being held.

Am afraid Windows / application issues are very difficult to troubleshoot as there will be many parameters at play. Main ones like Firewall, security settings and anti-virus are just tip of the iceberg...

Would recommend downloading VirtualBox and virtualizing a windows machine and run Airnav through that.. could be a little advanced for some users though.
