    Default Fast Activate 'Problem' HELP!

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry to trouble you.

    I am trying to update a new map update in a friends TomTom and when I come to use Fast Activate in either the TT Root Directory or even from the Desktop the program goes straight to "TT Home Patched....press any key to contine".

    When I do I get the same message comes back.

    The MENU screen does not appear and I cannot get back to it. I have also treied deleting the program completely and reinstalling it but that makes no difference.

    We have here a lot of versions of activators.
    Why do not you try any other?

    .....agreed but FastActivate does seem the easiest for newbies (or maybe Bobbys TTool)

    PS did you read the help.txt that comes with F/A?
    Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/left

    "Help.txt" was read but no answer or suggestions made for this type of problem.

    'BBTools', along with 'TTUsers Easytools' were also downloaded direct from the 'zipped files' in the posts, but after unzipping all that was found was a *.dlc file.

    However by moving the TomTom to a different machine (Computer) and running Fast Activate while connected to that machine the program worked on all 3 Menu Items and started with the Menu.

    But for some obscure reason Fast Activate still remains 'locked up' on the other machine.

    can you give more detail ?

    what is your OS ?
    what OS is on the other PC ?
    you got a firewall and anti-virus ?
    you run from root or from PC ?

    Hi basfit

    While the 'problem' has been overcome by switching to a different PC, the extra information that you asked for is below.
    The 'problem' still bugs me as it means that currently the guy cannot use Vista PC for any updates, he must switch to XP PC.

    things you could try , if if Vista is your OS

    -right-click exe , properties , compatibility , => run as administrator
    -same as above , but now , choose ; =>compatibility : XP

    -temporary switch off firewall

    do this one at a time
    so that IF it helps , you know the cause and can make it permanent

    Thanks basfit,
    I will pass the suggestion onto the friend who I tried to help.

    I also have a PC with Vista on and I have no problem when I use Fast Activate on that machine, so I am inclined to think that the 'problem' is being caused by another program in the PC that is interfering with how Fast Activate runs.
