Has anyone gotten the new beta xctu to read the com ports in win/7?

On my Win/7 desktop, when attempting to add or discover a device using the new beta XCTU featured in the November newsletter, a screen flashes for hundreds of milliseconds that the system is getting the com port list. That's it - end of programming day.

I uninstall'd the program, rebooted & re-loaded it. Same window - rebooted - same....I wonder if someone else has it up. I'll try it on XP, while awaiting an answer. Thanks

Do you have the link to the beta XCTU app you installed? I'm running released version on two different Windows 7 machines, one 32-bit, one 64-bit, without error.

I do seem to remember one tricky thing about the install though, in that the XCTU install seemed to "stall" on me. It was at that time that I discovered a popup behind my XCTU install window (which didn't even show up on the Task Bar mind you), which was prompting me on whether or not I wanted to download the firmwares from the Website (if I remember right). Once I clicked the box and it went away, the install continued without a hitch.

Is it possible this is what you are running into as well?

This is good - that very well could have happened. I got it working on 2 XP machines & 1 Win7, which may be 32 bit - I don't remember. It would be nice if I can get it on my 64 bit workstation with the 40" monitor. I'll uninstall it & reinstall again. It drives me crazy to reboot - I keep a lot of big spreadsheets open.
No reboot should be necessary to install XCTU.  Just make sure that if the install seems to "stall", you minimize your XCTU installer screen to see if anything is hiding behind it ;)
