Interesting. Do you have a serial port on your machine or can you use USB to x to y?FYI:
I successfully loaded Global TIS and TIS2000 using Windows 7 (32 Bit version) with no changes to the instructions for installation shown in the "official Tech 2 Clone thread".
There was no need to install Windows XP.
It works just fine using Windows Seven, and I got Security Access with no problems.
