Thanks! I apologize for being brief above. First rule of trouble shooting, start bare and add individually until you get a problem.. As such, I tried to pull up both Carbide applications in each machine from as I quit using condition it to nuking the drive and a bare(but appropriate) windows install-and windows/driver/bios updates with just a monitor, standard wired keyboard and mouse. Machines varied from Compaq, Hp, Dell, No Name, Asus, Toshiba with windows versions from vista up...I expected issues with those that shared Ram with the video and even disabled/swapped in a generic video card to get around it, When I could not get the software running bare with out the XXL connected, I didn't believe connecting the XXL would have made it work.
.Never got any of them to run the files bare, issues ran the gambit from just hanging, to the latest issue on the small desktop," Carbide C/M stopped working (Windows 7pro)" I reviewed the windows logs.. I tried in safe mode...error changed, running did not. I spent over an hour on each one-several two to three hours... The laptop I have been successful with is a recent Hp Built to Order, but older HPBTOs do not work...as I have been using them for the last 6 years or so. Pretty much the same things I did when trying to get AVid to work...
To summarize, installs went well-other than one of the older machine said that neither Carbide C/Mwere valid 32 bit applications..but the application would either hang, or error out...following the errors did not work either,
I chalked it all up to obsolete electronics, and am moving forward!
