Pinned topic Bigfix Console Running on windows 7

‏2009-11-04T13:58:04Z |
I'm building a new desktop system and before I load the OS, I was wondering if any one has installed the Bigfix console on a windows 7 box. If so have you had any trouble?

    Hi Marty,

    I have been running the BigFix Console under Windows 7 for a few weeks, and I have not had any issues.
    So thumbs up from me.

    Thanks for the info, I did have an issue installing it on my system, but after talking with Bigfix support we figured out it was becuase I was installing it on a 64 bit version of Windows 7 and I was reconfguring the 64 Bit ODBC connection entrie and I needed to run C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe and reconfigure the 32 bit connect info. Afte I did that, I was fine.

    Thans for your info, it's very helpful.

    Hope there will be a native 64 bit version of bes.

    Hi Marty23,

    Would you be able to share how you reconfigured the 64 Bit ODBC and 32bit connection info? I was facing some issues when using bigfix on a 64bit platform
