Bad RSCID message dialog when installing Evolution Computings FastCad Program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Really like Windows 7 beta but have one issue.  Installing Evolution Computings FastCad software package (which is Vista compatible but a 32bit app) on Windows 7 beta.  Seemed to install just fine but when I went to run the program I get a yes/no dialog that states *Bad RSCID*.  If I answer yes it just keeps coming back with the dialog; no and it quits the app.  I am pretty sure the FastCad software owns the dialog.  Working with the vendor now?  Any FastCad users tried this or come up with a work around?

  • Did you try running the installer or the executable file in Vista Compatibility mode?

  • Alex,

    Thanks for the tip but unfortunately it still exhibits the same problem.  The softare developer tried this with Windows 7 as well and had the same issue.  He said he identified the issue and I assume he contacted Microsoft.  Said that the next upgrade for Windows 7 should resolve the issue.

    Thanks,

  • It is now August of 2020 and I am getting that message both before and after a Windows 10 update. I also get it when I try to install the latest upgrade of FastCAD. ???
