Recently I purchased a new Alienware M11x laptop that is running Windows 7, since my old XP laptop died. On the first software update of the ci (with Detector Tools v.1.5) I got the following error message:
Upload exception: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Acces to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Escort\DetectorTools\CalData - 16005887.dat is denied.
at System.IO._Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode,String maybeFullPatah)

It had already made the four of the five passes before the error popped up. I ran the software twice with the same results. Is it possible that the software is not compatible with Windows 7?
After it failed to run I pulled up the file properties up and Windows 7 asked if I had successfully run the file in an earlier version (XP). I have. It offered to tailor Windows 7 to emulate the way it would have been installed under XP. I have not tried that yet because I donít want to screw anything up. The 9500ci seems to still be functioning normally under the last update, but I canít be sure. Any ideas?
Sending the unit back would be a last resort, as I spent nearly 20 hours installing it behind the bumper. I donít relish the thought of pulling the whole front off the Porsche again! Iíd appreciate some help here! Cheers!
