Hi there,

Apologies if I've come onto the wrong thread but I am a little confused. I've just got my Fortius VR trainer set-up again after being in storage for 2 years. I have the original forties with a blue handlebar control unit that connects via USB cable, with motorbrake and steering unit. I also have a new windows 8 laptop after my old (XP) one died, so cannot run my Fortius with current set-up. Can you please advise what I need to buy to get going again?

Assume new TTS 4 software (windows 8 64 bit compliance?) but do I also need to purchase a new handlebar controller or will my blue one work with the new software?

Hope there is a simple answer! Many Thanks.

I should add my system specs:
Intel Core i7-3610QM 2.3-3.3GHz, 15.6" TFT Full HD (1920x1080) LED, 16GB RAM, 750GB 7200rpm, Blu-Ray / DVD+/-RW DL, 2048MB NVIDIA GeForce GT650M / Intel HD 4000, Windows 8 UK, USB 3.0

Unlike the older green Imagic controller, the solid blue Fortius controller should work on 64-bit Windows 7 or Windows 8. Your PC looks fine. Try to find a good large screen HDTV with HDMI input for viewing.

Don't think he needs the T1932 interface. His blue T1942 should work fine.

Thanks for all of your replies, I've ordered the new software and may update the interface module at a later date.

Looking forwards to getting it back up and running, think I'll pug it into my 45" 1080p tv as the laptop has an HDMI out...just need to get the kids out the way when I want to ride :)

Thanks again!
Warren

As Microsoft XP is going to be abandoned, i installed Windows 7 64 bit on my computer where i was using Fortius software 2.0. It does not work. Does anybody know how to fix? Does Fortius can work with Windows 7 64 bit?

If you mean the older and now discontinued Fortius VR software that runs on a full blue screen, that software will only work on a 32-bit operating system. I do use it with 32-bit Windows 7. The Lab view software used to build that software and control the brake is only 32-bit compatible.

I seem to recall we had to upgrade from the original Blue controller to the white controller with blue button trim when a new PC required migrating from 32-bit Windows XP to 64-bit Windows 7.

There have been several topics about using Fortius Software under Windows XP running from VMware Player but there is also the option to 'Install and use Windows XP Mode in Windows 7'. You can take a look at the 'Fortius software in Windows 7 64 bit running in XP mode' forum post for more information.

No, the solid blue Fortius interface works fine on 64-bit. It is the solid green T1902 Imagic controller that does not.
