I am trying to run the GUI for the 8801EVM. I double click on "DRV8801EVM-001_R1p0.exe" I get the following error: Component 'MSCOMM32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not currently registered: a file is missing or invalid.
Please advise how I can get this working. MSCOMM32.OCX appears to be in the same folder as the exe file. These files were copied directly from the zip file slvc370.zip.
Are you trying to run the SW in Windows 7? If so, please use the SW I am attaching below.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

I am Evaluating DRV8821 Evm for my project ,and having windows 7. I am facing the same problem as mentioned by Brad.
Kindly share the Win7App for DRV8821.
In reply to utpal kumar:
Unfortunately, we do not have a Win7 compatible GUI for the DRV8821 and have no plans to develop one.
Does this help? I have never tried it, but maybe it will work.

Hi Mr. Kumar,
Have you tried running the application in compatibility mode? I have a Win7 machine and performing the following steps allows me to run our older GUIs designed for Windows XP machines:
-Right-click the executable file, select properties. -Select the compatibility tab. Select the checkbox labeled "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", then select Windows XP Service Pack 2 from the dropdown box-On the same tab, also select the checkbox labeled "Run this program as administrator."
If this solution does not work you may require a windows XP virtual machine as Ryan has suggested.
