I've owned and used RealGuitar 2L on Windows XP for many years, and love the product. I just installed it on a fresh copy of Windows 7 (x64) and the installation went well.

However, when trying to launch the program, I get this :
Error creating the instance of RealGuitar

Followed by :
Error: 2 - Can't connect to handler

(And then everything closes.)

I ran the setup file as administrator, and applied the updates, but the problem persists.

How do I fix this? Is RealGuitar 2L not compatible with Windows 7?

I found a solution to the problem.

Once the program is installed, some Windows 7 x64 users might need to right-click RealGuitar.exe in the program folder, and select Properties.

Then, go to the Compatibility tab, and choose to run this program in Windows XP (SP3) compatibility mode.

The downside is that Windows 7 will prompt for administrator access each time we run RealGuitar, but I can live with that.

Is there any kind of ETA on the new x64 installer? That will probably solve all these problems. I mean the program is half a decade old. Smile
