      Hello all,
      Am a longtime user of Gregg's Hulls program and need some help.
      I finally had to migrate to Windows 7 :( and so far have not been able to get HULLS to run.
      Have tried all of the various Windows 7 'Compatablilty Mode' choices but still no joy in Mudville.
      If there's anyone here who has succeeded at this... pleeease speak up and give a hand.
      Many thanks,
      TomH

      Are you running 64 bit? You might be out of luck because Hulls is a 16 bit program. I haven t found a solution to this issue yet.

        You need to load the free XPM mode (if you have Professional or Ultimate). If you have Home and you have an old XP retail disc you can run that under other VMs

          Yes, from what I understand, Carlson would have to recompile a new version. It may be he can create a version that will run on either version (32 or 64) of Win

            Yes, from what I understand, Carlson would have to recompile a new version. It may be he can create a version that will run on either version (32 or 64) of Win 7. That may well run on XP also, but I don't know for sure. We'll have to see what he decides to do.

              Gregg, I still use it on my Vista system. It would be nice to see more ballast info though. But I think it s a very usefull program to me. Been hoping that

                But I think it's a very usefull program to me.
                Been hoping that some time you might find the time to work on it some more.
                But I also know that time is some times very hard to come by.
                 
                Well anyway, the best to you.

                Thanks to all who have contributed. Yes, I m on Win7 Home 64 bit. Looks like no one has gotten any of the Win7 Compatibility modes hat haven t worked for me

                  Looks like no one has gotten any of the Win7 Compatibility modes hat haven't worked for me (but I was hoping ;) Haven't done the VM thingy yet as I'd still have to buy the retail WinXP O/S to run inside the VM.

                  Gregg,
                  Good to hear that you are considering the possibility of doing some furhter work on hulls.exe! It is by far the best piece of work out there for getting the basic hull shapes sorted by running lots of comparo's. When more info or things like appendages are needed, most of the Freeship/Delftship/other packages accept hulls.exe output directly.

                  It would be really interesting to get a recompiled version, even with some functions disabled, just to see how much functionality could be retained with the minimum effort by you. Well, that would be my vote anyway ;)

                  Again, thanks to all
                  and to Gregg for a great (greatest?) hull design program,
                  TomH

                    Microsoft has 2 free add-ons to Win7 that together will allow the existing hulls 1.9 program to work. I am using Ultimate SR1, but the instructions say this works on any Win7 box.

                    I downloaded and loaded the XPM [XP Mode] add-on and then the  Virtual PC add-on. XPM works inside the Virtual PC. Took a min to figure out how to get the hulls program and the .hul files into XPM virtual machine, but once I did that it seems to run just fine.
