Thread: Loading C950 Software

    Exclamation Loading C950 Software

    I'm running Windows 7 and can't get the setup program to load after downloading the Commander 950 software.
    The download was fine, but when clicking "setup" I get a window that says,
    "Setup can't install system files or update shared files if they are in use. Before proceeding close any program that you may be running."
    There are two buttons to click one is "OK" and the other is "exit setup".
    The system locks up at this point and I have to open the Task Manger and force the software to close.
    How do I get around this and install the software?

    I just dug out an older laptop I had and installed Xtra Putrid on it just for the Holley stuff.

    The "Commander 950 Software" download (Link) states it's not compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7. However, I've successfully installed it on both operating systems. I did have to right click on the desktop icon and "Run As Administrator", but I didn't have any problems installing it.

    Try without an AC car adapter, disconnecting background hardware, wireless/internet card removed, Bluetooth, etc...
    Also, ensure you don't have other software/programs running in the background (iPhone, iPad, sync updaters, etc.)
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.
