Gear Split is DOA with Windows 7
« on: March 06, 2014, 02:14:39 AM »
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. :x    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.  :roll:

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.

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  :|

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