I wasn't sure if this list was a proper place for tech-support questions,
but it seems it is.

It's a good starting point, but you seem to have an extraordinary problem,
one that most of us won't be able to duplicate. I suggest you send a help
request to:


I bought Fractal Mapper 7 on CD-ROM, and bought the upgrade to FM 8 as a
download. It ran fine on my old WinXP machine. Unfortunately, I can't get my
new Windows 7 computer to install FM 7 from the CD-ROM. I've tried
everything the Help screens suggested about "compatabilty settings", but
nothing's worked. Does anyone know of a work-around for this?

I doubt that Windows 7 is the problem (unless you're running without local
administrator rights). A lot of us have been installing and running FM8 on
Windows 7 for some time. I have two licenses. One is installed on my main
machine under Windows 7 64-bit. The other is installed on my second machine
running under Windows 7 32-Bit. Both installed without problems and are
performing fine.
