View Full Version : HM Windows 7 Error

01-02-2010, 01:05 AM
Everytime I open HM after installing Windows 7, I get this "HoldemManager.exe - Bad Image C:\Windows\System32\cscuii.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the progrm again....."

I am using HM 1.10 beta 6 on Windows 7.

Please advise.

Are you using Windows 7 build 7600 (RC) final build??.

For W7 and Vista you must set \holdem manager\dbcontrolpanel.exe, holdemmanager.exe and hmhud.exe are started as administrator. Run the windows explorer and navigate to your Holdemmanager installation directory. Right click the executables and select "Run as admin" from the compatibility tab. If you have Vista and the checkboxes are greyed out and you can't select it, please turn UAC on, reboot, and then set the files to run as administrator.

Add exceptions to the windows firewall, even if it is off. If you have a 3rd party firewall, do the equivalent or uninstall it temporarily - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=171

Make sure your video card drivers and windows auto updates are fully updated. Make sure you have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (or later for w7) installed.
