It is a great program that always ran fine in XP. Unfortunately, I now have a wiz-bang 64 bit Win-7 machine that dislikes Gear Split. Has anybody been able to run Gear Split in Win-7? What a terrible loss. angry    Can anybody help, Please?

Dave Dahlgren (the author of Gear Split) used to be a regular contributor on here with valuable insight. Anyone know how he can be reached?  THANKS for any help.

All kinds of issues with Win 7 64-butt running older software, try running it as an admin in compatibility mode? 

And just a FYI, Windows 9 should be out around Christmas.  rolleyes

Yep, tried compatibility mode for XP service release 3 and a few others. Also as administrator.

Thanks for the help.

Thank you Joe. I'll give him a call and report back.  Off-grid so may be a delay.

Jack, I think it is a program to help you find speeds at RPMs for various tranny and rear end ratios.  We have our own so I have never used it or checked the links

Thanks for your link, Sumner. I am quite familiar with your great site.  I was actually responding to Ayesha's post #5 above. Kind of interesting how a new member picked up on an old thread yet didn't volunteer any helpful information about their current program.    wink

I've see that somewhere.... if you are concerned with the math... remember it is a 2 run average... sometimes you end up with an 8 mile motor instead of a 10 mile motor  undecided

Would you be kind enough to indicate the name of the program you use?
