Cisco Configuration Professional with Windows 7

Has anyone attempted to use CCP with Windows 7?  I am running the following on my system:

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit

Java 1.6.10

IE8

UAC is at it's lowest setting.

I know that the minium requirements call for IE7 and, at the latest, Vista, but I was curious if there is a way to trick CCP into running on Win7.  The program installs without a problem, but when I run CCP, I get a random error that just says "Please correct the following error" - "error", with no explanation.

I am trying CCP because I cannot get SDM to run either...

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance!!

I am having the same problem. I had CCP 2.0 installed on Vista 32 bit with IE 8 and it was working fine. After I upgraded to 32 bit Windows 7, and tried to launch CCP I get the same error with no explaination. I have tried updating Java, uninstalling 2.0 and installing 1.4, adding localhost:8600 to default to compatibly mode in IE 8, all to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated as i do not know CLI, and I am dead in the water with out CCP.

Thanks!

Hi

Adobe Flash Player is required to run Cisco Configuration Professional. If you do not have Adobe Flash Player installed in your system. Exit Cisco Configuration Professional, install the Adobe Flash Player, and then start Cisco Configuration Professional.

Hey all...

I have been using CP v 2.4 for a few weeks now with Java version 1.6.17 with the following runtime parameters...

-Xmx256m -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false

Also - there is a security setting that needs to be disabled in the Java Control Panel as well

Advanced - Java Plug In - uncheck the 'Enable next generation Java plug-in' and restart the browser.

It is working great on Windows 7-64bit with IE8.

Hope this helps!!

The box to uncheck "enable next generation Java plug-in" is greyed out for me.

What version of Java are you running?  I am running CCP v2.5 on Win7 32-bit (and 64-bit) with Java 1.6.0.17 - also - did you set your runtime paramaters in the java control panel as stated above?

These settings have worked for me since my last post.

Francesco,

I haven't used CCP in a good while - since then I have converted to the command line for all of my configurations.  However, The last release i used was version 2.x if I remember correctly.  

 

Have you tried these settings from my post from 4 years ago??
