Concept 2.6 will it run on Windows 7 32 bit???
Has anyone had any luck getting Concept 2.6 to work on Windows 7, 32bit or 64 bit???

Has anyone had any luck getting Concept 2.6 to work on Windows 7, 32bit or 64 bit??? I.T. wants to upgrade my laptop, but Concept does not appear to like the idea. help would be great!

The demo version of the software seems to work fine on my 32bit Win 7 machine. There are hints on the Modicon web site on how to install on Win 7. It needs to be installed as Administrator and there is a known issue with the "TEMP" variable which gives an odd error message and prevents the program from starting. It's patched in a later release or you can work around by redefining the TEMP environment variable.

Concept 2.6 SR7 will run on Windows 7 Professional 32-Bit.

Since Concept was released (1995), the Microsoft Windows versions have changed and different security mechanisms were created and implemented. Concept, originally developed on WIN 3.1 was at that time not designed to support these security levels and an evolvement in this area would require a complete redesign.

The SR7 readme file includes information on working with Windows 7.
