Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7  - Navigators Assistance Guide

If your computer is running Vista/Windows 7 32-bit as Operating System, you need to change the default installation folder in order to have the software working properly.

During the installation process, when the following screen is displayed:


Click Browse… and edit the installation path to (for instance) C:\Apps\ASNAv instead of C:\Program Files\ASNAv.


You can choose any folder name except \Program Files or the other system folders like \Windows.

The destination subfolder \ASNAv is only an example; it will vary with your actual product.

 This problem is caused by the extra security measures of Windows Vista/Windows 7. These measures prevent our unlock system to run properly inside the \Program Files folder.

The above solution is working on a standard Vista/Windows 7 installation. It could not work on a PC where additional software restriction policies have been activated (like preventing a program to run outside the \Program Files folder or locking down the machine).

 In the middle of the software installation, the NMEA server setup program could fail with the error “Unable to create item in Program Manager group 'Marime' item 'NMEA server news' ”.
Please ignore this error as the main installation continues and the software is running fine.
Despite the error, the NMEA server should be installed properly. Note that this component is only useful if you want to connect an echosounder to the tide computation software included in the package.

 The software is not currently compatible with 64-bit Operating Systems.

 To check the version of your operating system, go to the Start menu, right-click on ‘Computer’ or ‘My Computer’ and select ‘Properties’.
