I cannot get DisplayFusion to run in Windows 7

I cannot get DisplayFusion to run in Windows 7 RC1 (build 7100).
Installation seems to work, but attempting to run the program gives me the following error:

Quote:
Unable to execute File:
C:\Program Files\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusion.exe

ShellExecuteEx failed; code 8235.
A referral was returned from the server


I have attempted running the program as an administrator, and still no dice.
I uninstalled it, downloaded a second copy of the installer, ran the installer as administrator, but attempting to run the program still results in the same error.

Also, minor gripe, this forum's search function does not allow me to search for "Windows 7" as "Each word must be at least two characters long". Arbitrary search rules like that are just stupid.

That's typically an error associated with an unsigned exe file. Did you download the installation or the archive version? (.exe or .zip) Did you install it to the default location (C:\Program Files (x86)\...)? Can you try disabling any anti-virus and let me know if that makes a difference? Thanks!

I used the installer, and let it use the default location.

Disabling the anti-virus did not help, however disabling the User Access Control did.

That's very strange... had you changed any of the UAC settings previously (like bumping up or down the protection level)?

Nope. Original settings.

I've pulled out enough hair over UAC. I turned it off and haven't looked back. It's basically to protect grandmothers from screwing up their computers. Admins also like it to keep workers from changing anything. Everyone else can get by without it just fine.

In an effort to cleanup the DisplayFusion forum, this topic is being locked and archived because it applies to an older version of DisplayFusion. If you are using the latest version of DisplayFusion and would still like some assistance, please create a new topic and I'll be happy to help you out. Thanks!
