Have downloaded Feedforall but it just won't install properly on Windows 7 Home Premium.

Is this a known issue and is there a fix?

1) Download the latest installation file for FeedForAll from our website: http://www.feedforall.com

2) When asked if you want to run or save it, you want to Save it to the Desktop.

3) After the installation file has downloaded, minimize and/or close everything until you can see the desktop.

4) Right click on the feedforall.exe file you downloaded.

5) Select the "Run as Administrator" option.

6) Click on the Install FeedForAll option.

7) Click on Next on the first step.

8) Click on Next on the second step.

9) Click on Browse on the third step.

10) In the upper left hand corner, change c:\program files\notepage\feedforall\ to c:\feedforall\

11) Click on OK.

12) Click on Next.

13) Click on Next until the installation finishes.

14) Click on Finish.

Now that we have the program installed, before you run the program for the first time, do this:

15) Right click on the Shortcut to FeedForAll.

16) Left click on Properties.

17) Go under the Compatability Tab.

18) Enable the Compatability for Windows XP Service Pack 2.

19) Click on OK.

20) Right click on the shortcut to FeedForAll.

21) Left click on the Run as Administrator option.

That should do it but if you have any problems, let us know.

Hey, I tried this and it did not work. It had a problem installing I think.

That's odd. What operating system are you running?

I also tried the instructions posted above and FFA hung during the install. Then, luckily I *mistakenly* read the sticky thread about Vista 64 bit and the install worked on W7 Home Premium. I think that the first bit about clicking and choosing the Compatability mode is missing from the instructions above.

I have tried all the variations on compatibility and install directory that I can find in this forum. All yield the same results:

FFA installs successfully, but when I run it (as administrator), it does not show anything. It is listed as a running program, and it shows on the "start bar" but when it is the active window, there is no window. When I try "end program" it says the program is waiting on input.

I just now purchased this program, and if I can't even get it to run, then I certainly want my money back!

Please advise.

Thanks

That's a little strange, usually the compatibility steps fix any outstanding issues with the program in Windows 7. Though, if you're using the 32-bit of Windows 7, you shouldn't need to run it in compatibility mode.

Have you tried installing the program to c:\FeedForAll\ rather than the Program Files directory? On some systems, the Program Files directory has some Operating System level permissions that restrict file access to anything within it.

Yes, I did install it to the root of c:\
Same result - cannot switch to the window, or see what it's waiting for input on.

OK, the solution is: I'm an idiot. I have two screens hooked up and the second screen was turned off. sigh.

Thanks.

I managed to install on Win 7 64 bit - However I would like it if I didn't have to put a password in everytime I wanted to use it.

Is there a way that I can run it as a User and not have to put Admin password in each time?
