    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.
