    You sound close, you might try running the .exe as an administrator.

    Here are some installation instructions for MCS on windows7:

    No need to use XP mode. You may have to tell the system that you are administrator once but there are not any problems with win7 64.

    Do you get the read only error with new projects or old ones?

    You can do one of two things:

    Go into the PBP file and find PBP.EXE and PBPL.EXE

    Right click on them. Choose RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR

    In some cases, you might have to try the TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY ISSUES in the same pull-down window.
