GuitarPort, Win 7, POD Farm

There was no GuitarPort option in the question selector, so I assumed that it's part of the POD family.

I have a GP that I bought in 2004. The CD contains software v2.0. I've used Windows XP Pro 32-bit until now and it installed fine on there. Now I'm on a new laptop with Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit and the CD won't install. I tried pulling it from the disk onto my HDD so I could run the setup EXE in XP compatability mode but no dice.

So I came here looking for updated software and I learn that GP is deprecated and I should run POD Farm. OK so I install that, but it says I'm not activated. So I get monkey and try to activate, it seems to connect and begin the process but ends with "error" and won't activate.

All software is latest version except GP firmware, which won't update in Monkey (I assume because GP is deprecated).

I don't need GP online support so I gather that I don't need Gearbox. All I want is the on-screen amps.

I have created a support profile called "setbak" but I don't know how to link it here. I assume tech support can find it.

Thanks, I've reproduced my question there.

if it's an older device... you'll want to get pod farm 1 and not 2, i believe...
