Exciting news for the many that have asked...

I recently had the opportunity to download updates to all of the libraries that I use to make Hip, and all of a sudden it started working on Windows 7, both 32 AND 64-bit. This is still a 32-bit program, but so long as it is installed in the default 32-bit directories I had no problems.

It is probably a bit early to say that I have all of the answers, and I need people to download and test the new build which is available here: http://www.byremote.com.au/HIP/Beta/HipInstallComplete.EXE.

I would love to update the installer to a new MSI tool, but I cannot afford the expense of these installers (why are software installers so expensive), but again it seems to work.

Please use at your own risk and report your findings here.

Hi,

I didn't know HIP had problems with W7. I've been using 3.02.14 since W7 (32) RC & RTM.

I think I had some error messages with 3.0.12, hard to remember that far back.

I do have times that HIP has to be restarted. Keys stopped working, even though they are still defined OK.

I'll try the new one.

Have you thought about adding a "Triple Tap" ability to HIP? Actually, it probably needs to be "Quad Tap". Like SMS: 1ABC, 2DEF, etc.

Thanks,

dRdoS7.

It seemed to be hit and miss whether it would work or not, and it certainly did not work on a 64-bit machine. I am having difficulty finding time for Hip development, but problems and suggestions are always welcome.
