TCDK isn't supported on 64-bit Windows systems - neither Windows 7 nor Vista. I had a try on my side with both Windows 7 versions - sorry, it cant be installed using 64-bit. Probably they had to rewrite the drivers. Downgrade to 32-bit to run TCDK please without any issues.

Another option is to simply use a virtual machine to host a 32-bit Windows installation and do your development (or at least your flashing) from that VM. I've used VirtualBox successfully running XP hosted on Linux. I suspect a Windows host will work as well.

I am compiling VS 6.0 C, C++ and VB6 on Windows 7 just fine...there are some really old 32 bit applications that just will not run, but I tend to think the SDK would likely work on 32 bit windows in XP compatability mode...However, there are some tricks to doing this...
First, you have to use the 32 bit version of Windows 7...
Second, you have to copy the installers (in your case the SDK) to the hard drive and change the compatability mode of all the executed binaries to XP and run as administrator.
Anyway, I had to do this in my day job as a Windows application developer...Windows 7 32 bit edition is not all that different from XP, just areo and craploads of security to turn off...good luck...

I had a trial on my side using Windows 7 32-bit. This works like XP even without a virtual machine. The issue is just running 64-bit.
If I run it in the compatibility mode "Windows XP Service Pack 2" (as administrator) I get an error message "You need Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista to run this installation", without compatibility mode I get the message "62-bit version of Windwos are not supported for the moment. Please use a 32-bit version of Windows". Nice help. Sorry to say, I couldn't solve this issue. Recompiling for 64-bit and adding 64-bit drivers on the Line6 side will definitively help.
