My old laptop died a dramatic death last week. I have a new one. It has Windows 7. I am not sure how having it impossible for even the "administrator" profile disallowed from putting stuff in "c://program files" or wherever it's supposed to go is an improvment, but that's my issue. I finally managed to work through stuff with my nuvi macro, but am not having such good luck with running the find stats macro. When I try, it has an error message that says something about "found database not found" or words to that effect. Is it taking issue with the "my finds" name for the database?

I have run it the same way I did all the other times in the past. Help!

The easy answer is to re-install GSAK to C:\gsak. I gave up trying to run it as admin and all the other stuff that's supposed to make it work in /program files.

Do you have a seperate "My Finds" database? If you use the same one, you need to configure the macro to point to your main database.

I'm not sure if it's Windows related, but maybe config within GSAK. I'm assuming you're using the FindStatGen macro. If so, then you may want to verify the config (main screen -> 3rd button = Config). Near the top of the screen it lists the database it's working with (upper left corner "Found Caches Database"). Trying clicking the dropdown and re-picking your database.

No luck with any of that. The only way I could get GSAK to load my PQs was to have it associate with some App\Roaming\gsak thing. It continues to tell me I must run things as an administrator, and my computer just does not let me do that.

I paid for the darn thing. WHY is this supposed to be better? I could understand if it were part of some big network of computers in a workplace, but it's just mine in my own house. I might just let it all go and keep it simple to let us load and go. We are becoming less and less interested in any of the minutiae of geocaching, anyway. Heck, we hardly geocache these days!

We've had good luck with the GSAK support forum under Help in the past. Have you tried there?

I haven't asked in their forums, but I did search the posts fairly extensively. Best I could discover is that Windows 7 doesn't let you put stuff in program files. It would be nice if I could get findstats to work, but if I can't figure it out easily, we're just moving on. I can load my caches and that's what matters!
