Vista Explorer 7 and AEC/HYPrLock?

jaxz Hi all - been away a while -

What is the current compatability for AEC/HyprLock and windows VISTA, and IE 7?

I have seen on Rons site "not approved for Vista" - hopefully that is being under development - Ron?

And what about AEC and the new Vista and/or IE 7 ?
Is this working OK?

Any word on when AEC 5 comes out?

rlemire Hi jaxz

After setting up a dual boot test station using Windows XP and Vista, I was able to confirm that both Activ E-Book and HYPrLock will work properly with Microsoft Vista and Internet Explorer 7, however early reports of problems with Vista's stiffer security rules were justified.

With the introduction of the Vista Operating System, Microsoft dramatically changed its security model for protecting users from malicious code. One aspect of this security is that users will now need to authorize every program each time it is run. In addition, to prevent background operations, each program will drop from user control before starting. In many instances this security will prevent many programs, such as eBooks and shareware from registering password authorization.

I found that most programs written for earlier versions of Windows will also work in Vista, but some specialty programs, programs that need Hard Drive access, require password entry or many older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program doesn't run correctly in Vista, you can use the Program Compatibility Wizard to change the compatibility settings for the program.

Activ E-Book, HYPrLock, and eBooks that use those systems will need to use the Program Compatibility Wizard to run properly. I have added a web page explaining how to use the Wizard at http://hyprlock.com/hyperlock/Vista.htm.

I have also update HYPrLock to v4.2 so it works better with Vista. A copy of the software can be downloaded from the HYPrLock web site at http://hyprlock.com Upgrades are always free...
