I installed the AIM Racestudio software on a machine with Windows 7 this weekend and couldn't get the USB driver to load(error message read "unknown operating system")... so no data connection. Anyone know if it's supported yet?

I just got a Windows 7 machine yesterday and have the same question about Traqmate.

It's working for me. I downloaded the latest from the AIM website a couple weeks ago and the driver installed just fine. I'm on a x64 Dell laptop.

I just did both the software and the firmware today, onto a Windows 7 machine. The software is a bit tricky in how it installs the driver onto a W-7 machine, so you have to follow the directions carefully. It puts a new icon on your desktop called "AIM USB-Driver 2008," which then installs the driver.

CJ,

Are you using a 64 bit processor system? If so, did you download the latest version of Race Studio? You need a pretty recent release of Race Studio to get a USB driver that is 64 bit compatible. AIM hasn't supported 64 bit processors until just recently.

Did you try right clicking the installer and running it in Windows XP compatibility mode?

Holy crap - there it is on my desktop! Thanks Mark. I was at the track and a little preoccupied with other problems when I tried the install. I wont get a chance to try it again for a day or so but thanks for the quick response everyone.

I think I remember you need to right-click the icon on your desktop and choose run as administrator. I think that might be covered in the software install instructions.

Good luck.

OK, I was able to download the newest version from AIM tonight and install. No problem at all... I didn't even have to uninstall the first
one. Working fine now.
