How true and just to clarify for those reading along at home or future readers who haven't been following along, allow me to clarify.
So much of this took place in another thread where we were trying to help another member.
The member was having troubles with his smartcard and or reader. I for one have never seen a smartcard go bad but have seen them get corrupted by removing them while the card is being written to. The ONLY way I know to fix this w/o replacing the card is to format the card. The ONLY way to format this smartcard I know of is to use a utility (provided by a long time but unknown to me member) which is no longer supported. Well this program was written for Windows XP.
Now this doesn't mean that IF someone had a need to get this program working that some fine forum members wouldn't jump in to find a solution and prob more than one.
To my way of thinking by far the easiest way to use this utility would be to install it on an XP computer. If you have another way kindly share it when needed.
A final note - said member may no longer even need to use a cpap machine. That is good news and another reason I wouldn't go thru all the other mumbo jumbo to get the program working on Win7. Plus I think he said he had an XP machine and you would prob only need it for that format program.
