    HELP!! RR not working with Windows 7

    Yes, i just downloaded Windows 7 and installed it on my desktop. And out of curiousity (and before wiping my carpc) i decided to test RR and it does not work.

    Is RR currently working with Vista. If so, shouldn't it work with "Windows 7" (branded "Vienna" BTW)?

    Define 'does not work'


    Yes it sort of works with Vista, but we need more details of the above.

    When opening RR i get a pop up stating "Unexpected error; quitting" - my only option is to press 'ok'.

    That's as far as i get...

    Again, this is Windows 7 - not Vista. So the problem may be compounded.

    Sounds like there is a VB6 runtime file that is not registered.


    Or possibly an autoit error.


    What skin are you using?

    the skin i'm using is the default.

    I did try to open RRCONFIG and i get an error there also. What's strange is that i then downloaded RRCONFIG.EXE and currently resides on my external drive, and it opens up. I then copied it to the /programfiles/roadrunner folder and then it doesn't work. i thought it may be rights issues but everything appears to be ok. WinAmp classic works fine, even the RRSkinTool opens ok.

    One last note: i tried opening the SkinEditor and get a "run-time error 'COMDLG32.OCX' or one of it's dependendies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid."

    thanks Enforcer,

    after a few attempts with security and blah blah blah - i changed my skin to DFX and it works.

    In addition, i had to give "everyone" all rights to the RoadRunner folder.

    Let's see if all else works ok.

    thanks again
