RE: Windows Vista

Here's the problem. I had the same issue with a number of programs
myself. What you need to do is open the directory and not let the CD
autoplay and start the setup immediately. Then find the setup program
and right click on it and open 'properties'. There is a tab there call
compatability. Click on that and then there is an option to install in
Windows XP/2000/95 mode. Also, you should click on 'Run as
Administrator'. That seems to take care of installation properties.
Installation of Fortran ran fine after that.

Hi Jian

 

I had Vista as an operating system for less than 2 days and that was
some weeks ago, so I can not recall *which* version of Vista I had. I
don't believe it was Ultimate though which may have contributed to the
trouble I had.

 

That said, I was unable to install Compaq digital visual FORTRAN (I have
Compaq visual FORTRAN version 6.6.C3, which was the last update provided
by HP). I tried installing an earlier version that I had handy (version
6.6A) and also couldn't get that to install either. I was able to start
the installation via setup.exe but then the setup would just stop and
all traces of the program would simply disappear. I didn't try
installing the older version of Compaq FORTRAN (6.0) so maybe that would
have worked. I was able to install G77

 

The version of Vista I was running had some odd sort of file protection
that required manual acceptance of files being renamed or deleted via a
pop up GUI. Obviously, this caused problems when Nonmem finished a job
because of the files that are deleted at the end. I had checked and
found that this "feature" could be turned off but was also told that
disabling this feature would disable other aspects of Vista. At that
point I gave up on Vista and went back to XP.

 

I am sorry I cant provide more information but I was so unimpressed with
the so-called improvements in this OS that I didn't push that hard to
get everything running.

 

Diane

Hello, Diane,

Under Vista Ultimate on Dell D620, I installed Compaq Fortran 6.0 and
updated to 6.6c. NONMEM VI runs well and Wings also runs OK. Would you
let me know what is the deleting issue? I want to make sure I am using
NONMEM VI appropriately under Vista. Thanks.

Jian

Hi Pete

 

I had problems as getting Compaq digital visual FORTRAN to install and
there are some changes needed to be made to the OS (as far as I can
tell) because of Vista's issues with deleting files.

Personally I am not crazy about what I saw so am back in Windows XP

Diane

Before I get started I thought I would ask whether anyone knew of any
issues regarding running or installing NM V or VI under Windows Vista?

 

Thanks,
