If you are running windows 7, why don't you run the software inside an xp virtual machine?

Why don't you try a REAL virtual machine? VMware or Virtualbox?

i would rather not ss thats just too complicated compared to just getting an updated program. i dont want to rin a vm for a simple security program.

Your money to burn, brah! :D - Most capture software is (stupidly) hardware specific.
