Topic: Win 7 x64 can't install

Using 1.4.4, I'm getting an error message that states it can't be installed on this version if windows. Any workarounds?

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

Not that we're aware of Craig, but we still haven't reviewed a developer package for Win 7 yet either. I'm sure you'll find lots of software that doesn't work at this early stage.

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

I was able to install Tranzport on Windows 7 and it's working correctly. Try setting the "compatibility" to Windows XP and only install the Tranzport driver. Install any other plugs separately. Also, I strongly suggest that you use MSconfig to disable the Tranzport from loading during startup. Having the Tranzport always resident frequently results in a BSOD during shutdown.

Thanks, I set it to Vista compatibility and it installed fine.
Does it only BSOD on shut down for you? Are you using x64 version of win 7?
TIA

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

If you unplug tranzport before shutting down win 7 x64, it does not bluescreen.
It says that about vits64 as well on the driver download page. Sad thing is, FD have known about this bug in their driver since they released it in 2007 but have not fixed it yet. That's wonderful support...

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

The bluescreening only happened during shutdown; however, with the Tranzport driver loaded during startup and always resident, I did experience random crashes with Sonar. These stopped as soon as I inabled the resident driver.
And yes, I'm running the 64-bit version of Windows 7 and am, like you, wondering why it has taken FD so long to fix this bug.

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

Hello fclef, Craig, and all

just to briefly answer the question as to why we haven't released a driver fix for this 'bug'. It is not that we have turned a blind eye to the issue. If it were a simple driver tweak we would certainly have done it long ago. Unfortunately the solution appears more complicated than that. Also, this problem is not consistent with all machines. Some, like an XPC machine in my office, do not exhibit the problem at all.

We are still looking into it and hopefully we will find a suitable solution. Windows 7 is still a ways from being useful to 3rd party developers. Microsoft has a nasty habit of changing their audio/MIDI interfaces in the 11th hour as was seen with Vista. This caused a major disruption for many hardware manufacturers that they won't be anxious to repeat.

We'll keep looking at it and post any new progress as soon as we can.

Best,

CS

Mind explaining how you inabled the resident driver?

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

To disable the resident driver from appearing on the system tray:
go to Start-All programs-accessories-run (or use the quick keys <Windows><R>) to open a Run box. Enter "msconfig" in the "open" box. Alternate method: click the start button and begin typing "system configuration" to locate the program.

When the system configuration program opens, click on the startup tab. Locate the Tranzport driver and deselect the box. After you reboot, you'll get a message saying something to the effect that you're doing a selective startup. Nice of Windows to tell you something that you already know.

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

Thanks fclef
It appears the problem is with the control app that resides in the tray and how it pokes their driver, as you said. Once I disabled it in msconfig, it works as expected and shuts down without BSOD.
Whats kind of sad is that FD have not fixed this yet as it's their app that is causing their driver to BSOD.  But at least they made ishread for my iPhone...
Can you say lost focus...

Re: Win 7 x64 can't install

The TranzPort Windows driver version 1.5.0 has been released and is on the TranzPort's Download page. It fixes the crash-on-shutdown (or killing TranzPort via task manager) bug.
Suggested procedure for upgrading:

1. Disconnect TranzPort USB transceiver
2. Run the 1.5.0 Installer from our site at the link below.
3. Reconnect TranzPort, and follow the onscreen prompts.
