Running Windows 7 And Making The New Update Program Work

Recommended Posts

I finally broke down and got serious about updating my 800, and like most people that has had problems when using Windows 7 I looked for a fix.

After a short time of confusion about what was going on and not really finding any answers, I turned to YouTube and found the solution.

Simply put the problem is not the program but the compatibility to Win 7.

So all one has to do is the following:

Before running the program,

Highlight and right click on the program and scroll down to troubleshoot compatibility.

Click on troubleshoot compatibility and click on Try recommended settings, click next, and then start program.

That is all you need to do to get it to work.


I hope that this helps someone else out there.

      Hi, long time lurker, first time poster. 
      So the manual only tells you that certain modes have “low frequency weighting” and “ higher frequency weighting”. Otherwise a chart shows the adjustable settings that have been optimized for scenarios they describe presumably.  Understandable, we get some presets.
      My question in title in other words: Assuming I set all adjustable settings the same for Park 1 and Field 1 (or Park 2 and Field 2), would these two modes be essentially the same? Or would the non-adjustable portion of the “1” modes and the “2” modes still be different?
      Thank you for your insight.  If this has been covered in another post, a link is appreciated as my search did not lead to an answer.

      Hi everyone ... I recently updated my equinox 800 to version 3. I have gone to the beach to test it ... after trying on several beaches the detector is unstable ... beach mode 1-2 ... the screen always shows -9 (with any sensitivity) I can not remove it ... sometimes a small triangle comes out next to the battery ... these beaches where I have always detected, never any problems ... anyone knows the reason EDIT: software version 2.1, false signals continuously, sometimes with bad sound (centimes or garbage) I locate with pinpointer but without targets, unstable detector in and out of water
      some reason?
      Thank you

      When I update/upgrade to the latest version just (today) downloaded from Minelab the software says it is version 3.1.3.  Is that what everyone else has been downloading and upgrading?  The filename of the software that performs the upgrade has '3.0' in it, but when running the software it shows the 3.1.3 number.
      I ask to make sure we're all talking about the same thing when we discuss any noticed changes from previous version(s).

      I ran pk1 50 tone f2-7 and I dug over 50 bottlecaps  since  they repeated a nice sound.I could usually tell a pulltab or ring because of the softer sound but I wanted to see how the update might have changed things.It seems  the bottlecaps had a more broken sound   before even though the settings were the same.I did manage to get a 3.2  gram14k white gold band in very deep water so    at least  I was rewarded  for digging all those caps.

      I read a lot but I'm not sure I have found the answer,  are the 4 Khz in multi frequency or do they work alone?
      In the Calabash Digger video, he sees that 4 khz are better on silver than in multi,  if they were part of multi there should be no difference, but if the 4 Khz were out then it would be correct.
      What do you think?
