How to install RAMMS on Windows 7 - XP Mode

It is possible to install RAMMS on Windows 7, but you have to install Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC. It is best, if you have

- Windows 7 Professional
- Windows 7 Enterprise or
- Windows 7 Ultimate,

because then it is very easy and free to do so.

How to install Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC:

Visit this website: Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC

Select your system and your language and then download and install the following items. Windows validation components must be installed before any downloads will be possible. This will make sure that Windows 7 running on your PC is genuine. You have to accept and install these components! After this validation, download and install:

- Download and install Step 2: Windows XP Mode
- Download and install Step 3: Windows Virtual PC
- Step 4 not needed if you are running Windows 7 SP1

After the installation, you can start your Virtual XP Mode with

- Start -> All Programs -> Windows Virtual PC -> Windwos XP Mode

All you have to do now is:

- install RAMMS in the Windows XP Mode
- Run the file 'run_system32_dll.bat' from the 'Temp'-directory in the RAMMS installation directory. This will install some Runtime-Libraries that are missing on a clean XP-Installation.
- Start RAMMS and create the RAMMS license request file and get your RAMMS license.

Important things to know:

- you can start RAMMS directly from Windwos 7: "Start -> All Programs -> Windows Virtual PC -> Windwos XP Mode-Applications -> RAMMS -> Run RAMMS"
- The Windows 7 hard drives (C:\ and, if available D:\) and all connected network drives are accessible in Windows XP Mode. BUT, the drives are mapped as "C on HostPC", "D on HostPC", and therefore contain spaces in the path. This can cause problems when using RAMMS. We recommend to work locally in the XP Mode, and, if needed, to copy the files/results manually (or automatically with a syncro-tool) to the Windows 7 drives.
