I just stopped all the security (firewall antivirus )
I have just been playing with it again and i got a message that IIS had failed so i have been looking around MS to see if there is a check for IIS or an install application but all i can find are updates and when i try those they will not install.
Further investigation underway.Mind you i should not complain too much as it is producing points at a good rate (i am just greedy, i want more
LOL, I know.
That's a good greed too, for once!
You're on your own with VPC though as I also got hit with the IIS issue though I'm not sure it was the same problem. My memory is almost as good as yours.
Seriously, try to get VM going as that's what everyone is using and there are no guides around for VPC. All the big boys who get 1M PPD or more all use GPU + VM and I would guess most everyone else if not all.
Hang on Bill, you said Vista 64 right? Maybe this will give you a hint of where to go next though it is dated.
I - Windows Vista 64-bit notes
Windows 64-bit users are going to have the problem of windows complaining about unsigned drivers. For this you have a couple of options.
A) Use Vmware server 2.0. I did do an install of vmware 2.0 and windows did not complain. But i have not configured a vm with it yet. In the future perhaps i will do this, or if someone else cares to, i will add the install procedure for vmware server 2.0.
B) Before windows starts loading, just after your bios finish the POST routine, hit your F8 key and it will bring up an advanced boot menu. In there is an option to disable driver signature checking. The only annoying part is, you will have to do this every time you reboot. This is what i do, but i have to go through a multi-boot menu regardless.
C)For this option you will have to perform the above operation for the install of vmware server 1.0.x, reboot, F8, select disable driver signing, and install vmware. There is also an application that will enable 'Test Mode' for vista64. This is designed for developers who are creating drivers that are not yet signed. It allows you to set Test Mode on which is basically the same as doing (B). Hit up google for enabling windows vista 64 test mode for more info.
