Trilogy install problem on Windows 7 64 Bit - SOLVED!

Hi all,

I just installed Trilogy on a Windows 7 64 bit machine. I used the Spectrasonics utility Spectramove to move the data file and now Trilogy says it can't find it. I've run Spectramove both as admin and non admin, and still no joy. Any Trilogy users out there on Win 7 64-bit? What am I missing?

Thanks!

    I'm not sure what spectramove is but I moved the file manually then made a shortcut to the new location in program data/spectrasonics......

    Hi sykodelic,


    Thanks for the reply! Spectramove is a Spectrasonics-provided utility that is intended to move the Trilogy.dat file and fix up the registry entries that Trilogy uses to locate the file. The program was done in 2004, so I'm pretty sure it doesn't know anything about Windows 7 let alone the 64 bit version. 


    I'll give your method a try.

    Thanks again!

    Well, I finally got it working. In case anyone's interested, I must have not run the setup program in administrative mode. 

    Bottom line, when installing programs that aren't aware of Vista or Windows 7, you need to run the installer as administrator or most likely things won't work correctly. Thought I had done that, but, apparently not.

    Glad you got it gary.  If you like trilogy check out the upgrade to trillian.  It is amazing for bass such a great upgrade.

    I must say that I just got it meself... that upright acoustic is without a doubt the ... darn thing I ever heard. The arp. is pretty cool also. It includes all trilogy samples. And you'll have a hard time taking it out of my hands.
