Of course I am not "expecting the software to run perfectly", that would be illogical. I 'm just asking if anybody has any idea IF and how could this issue can be solved.
How do you expect a software that was released 4 years ago to run perfectly on an operating system released 3 years later? Win7 did not exist when AC10 came out so how could the software be written in a way to run perfectly.
You can try one thing:
uninstall Java in Win7, install the Java that comes with the AC10 installation CD. That solved problems before.

Ha! I don't know how it came in my mind after all this time to try once again to install my AC10 and...... tadaaaaa!!!!
With no effort, no changes, no customization, anything! Maybe it was a horoscope thing, lol.
AC10 is now installed to my Win7 PC and running smoothly (in regular mode not XP). The only thing needed was an update of the WiBuKey drivers.

FlavioB, my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit.
Unfortunately I don't have much to say about the successful installation. The last time I tried to install AC10 was before the 20th of June following laszlonagy's tip about uninstalling Java, but with no success. Today, I contacted my local Graphisoft office to see what could I do, an upgrade or something. I wanted to describe to them at what point the installer crashed, so I tried to install it again. I inserted the CD and just pressed OK to everything. The thing kept going and the installation was completely successful. As simple as that! I did NOTHING else in particular!

I verify that it was in "normal" mode (my version of Win7 does not have XP mode) but my user account I log in has Administrator (else I think you don't have the rights to install any software)
