  • xPort Windows 7 x64 Bluetooth Problem

    Hi,

    This message is for Curiosity, creator of xPort.

    Your program worked great in XP, but on my Windows 7 64bit machine, it bogged down even though I ran it with Administrators rights and in XPSP2 Compatibility mode.

    I checked, and apparently GPSGate had to issue a special patch here:

    Do you need a similar patch for the virtual ports?

    Can we use the GpsGate patch in the mean time?

    I am using it with Microsoft Street and Trips 2009, which works fine with a USB GPS, but bombs on the Haicom Bluetooth GPS.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, XPort doesn't have a 64 bit driver. I wasn't aware that it even worked. It's probably being run in a 32 bit emulation mode so it will be much slower.

      xPort 64 bit

      Thanks for the clarification.

      Hope eventually you will write a 64bit driver for those of us who moved to x64.

      Thanks

        Yeah, me too. It doesn't have to be an official signed driver. I'm fine with running Windows 7 64-bit in the test mode.

                  I started on it a while ago, but got distracted. I'll pick it up again and get it to work.

                    Really, would u re-consider make a 64Bit version?

                    Or is this an April Fools joke?

                        Sorry to hear that, maybe time to upgrade to W7 64bit,



                        Hope you solve it soon!

                          OK it's been more than a year since you wrote, but anyway. My CarPC has 16 GB of RAM for photo editing. And I don't have driver headaches other than the absence of a 64 bit driver for XPort :-).
