    I’ve been at this problem for months. When I go to open the icon I get to click the trial. The screen flash’s a window and goes away. It won’t open...
    I have a new installed windows 7 pro 64 bit.
    I have all the windows updates.
    I have my LAN IP set to I have pinged that’s receiving just fine.
    I have turned 3.5.net on in windows features. I have went through regedit and set .exe to exefile. Set exefile to “%1”%* and command to “%1”%* . I have added VMD to be allowed on firewall and also turned off public and home. All the windows programs open fine.
    Windows updates to 4.8.net framework.
    Any clue what still doesnt allow the VMD software to open?
    Before this windows install the computer had windows 10 installed it didn’t work. So I installed Windows 7 pro 64 bit. I downloaded the VMD driver from Torchmate’s website.

    Likely you do not have all the Microsoft Visual C++ prerequisites for 2008 thru 2012 for both 32 and 64 bit, you can download these from Windows Update. No need to go through Regedit, not even sure what those features you mention even do. The VMD software basically needs C++ and .net framework 3.5 to open.
