    2. With your mouse Right Click the file Setup.exe and select Properties
    3. Click on the Compatibility Tab

    5. Click on Apply then OK.
    6. Run the file Setup.exe

    Once easygen is installed you need to run the program itself with Administrator rights. Navigate to the easygen installation folder "C:Program Files/Symbiant/easyGen 2.4" right click the file easyGen2.exe select Properties and under the compatibility Tab do as above - See above image.

    Start easyGen and click the register icon, complete and send the registration form.

    When the confirmation screen appears, DO NOT CLICK ANYTHING ON THIS PAGE until a dialogue appears asking if you want to check for updates to your copy of easyGen, click OK to check for updates.

    Another way to install easyGen and register it is to temporarily disable UAC (please search for “disable UAC” in your favourite search engine if you are unsure how to do this).

  4. It says it needs .NET 1.1 Framework
    Even though Windows 7 and Vista have .NET 3.5 or better, easyGen needs the .NET 1.1 to be installed. You may already have this installed on your computer, if you get the error asking for .NET 1.1 framework then download it and install from the Microsoft web site. NOTE: this may require you to uninstall 3.5 and re-install after 1.1 has been installed.

  6. When I close easyGen I appear to lose the registration
    When registering easyGen make sure easyGen is running with full administration privileges and you must wait for the update dialogue "easygen will ask you if you want to update easygen" which appears after the confirmation page. See Always run as an administrator above
