    Connectivity Issue


    I spent an hour on the line with tech support yesterday, and I still can't get an older model SimMom to work. The Tech told me that the VitalSim box isn't compatible with the Windows 7 that our college runs. However, the college refuses to retro-install Windows XP. Does anyone have a work around for this?

    I just noticed the date on this post so hopefully you have found your answer, but you can run software in Windows XP Compatibility Mode in Windows 7. We have a number of Sims in our center that require Windows XP. It is basically running XP in a box to accommodate the software so it doesn't create any security vulnerability issues. Your IT support guys should have pointed this out to you. Good luck, Cheers!
