Airnav wont boot up with Win7
« on: July 03, 2010, 09:16:30 am »
Hi
Ive just swapped from XP to Win7 (64bit), and Airnav wont move beyond the the startup screen - ie where you input username/password.  It just hangs and the only way to clear it is by the Task Manager. 
Probably something basic but.............!    Any ideas?

Many Thanks

Hi shytott

Not that I am computer literate but I have been reading up on using ANRB with Win 7 and from other treads it could be a virtual store problem - did you install to the default directory in Program Files or into a separate folder as recommended in this forum. Type Windows 7 in the search box and it should give you various treads on the subject.

Ive just installed the latest drivers and that had no effect.  Is there some sort of security issue with Airnav and Win7? , firewalls etc?  (this is Airnav 2007 - does that make a difference?

Cheers

I run it an a netboook with Win 7 (32bit) and no problems, but it is installed in its own directory on C drive. You could try right clicking the icon on staring Rbox and ruuning as Administrator.

Is there some sort of security issue with Airnav and Win7?

Yes, hence the advice to install somewhere other than Program Files.  Best to install somewhere like C:\Airnav Systems\Radarbox

OK, sorry guys, I misread the advice.

I have just uninstalled Airnav,  then reinstalled it into the C/:.  Now the program does boot up, but its not receiving data from my antenna or internet.
Are there any speacial drivers I need to run Airnav 2007 on Win7 64bit?

Cheers

Probably best to download the latest 64-bit drivers from the support page - http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/support.html

Scroll down to "Latest Drivers".

Hi Tarbet
Yup, Ive done that but it has no effect.
Whats happening now is, if I reinstall from scratch, click the desktop icon, it boots the program up to the logon window with teh username and password preinstalled and it will progress into the program but will not receive local or internet  data.   If i then close it down and try to relaunch it, all I get is the logon window, which is now not pre filled in and after populating teh usnername and password, it just hangs.  Even the demo will not work.  Yet, if i switch to my old XP machine,  everythings perfect.!!

Just noticed that you say you're running Radarbox 2007.  Probably best to download and use the latest version v3.13.

Well yes, I had wondered about that,  but isnt the latest version, the 3D version, and will that work with my older box?

v3.13 will work with any Radarbox.

Probably best to uninstall Radarbox, get the v3.13 installation zip, and then install that to C:\Airnav Systems\

Nope, v 4.03 downloaded and it boots up, but still not receiving local or internet data.
