    Here is how I managed to succeed finally in installing Eagle on my E-
    Machines Vista SP1 computer:

    1. Download and save in the usual way.

    2. The program will not install using the Run button on the Download
    box. Close the box.

    3. Go to the Download section of the computer and find the Eagle
    download.

    4. Right click on the download, select Properties, select Windows XP
    Compatibility.

    5. Click on the Eagle download and it will install correctly, as near
    as I can tell.

    6. Under Accessories, Windows Explorer find the Eagle file and the
    Application (.exe file I suppose). Click on Make Shortcut. Move the
    shortcut to the computer screen.

    It is odd (to me) that the program will run okay under Vista but not
    install under it. ? But I am hardly a computer geek.

    Any reason you posted this to s.e.misc
    instead of the logical place (sci.electronics.cad)?
    You might also mention Cadsoft.

    ....and as an acronyn for Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor,
    EAGLE is properly written in all caps.

    Any reason you posted this to s.e.misc
    I am not familiar with that other group, I did a search and this one
    came up.
     
  4. Sop what did you actually search for at google?

    Mention of the program? Something about CAD (though likely those
    three letters alone would provide too many results to be a useful
    pointer)?

    Even when you find this newsgroup, you'd find pointers to others
    in the hierarchy. The mere fact of sci.electronics.misc suggests
    there may be other newsgroups, so if you click the "electronic" bit
    at google towards the top of the page, you will see the full hierarchy.

    Bsides, .misc is for anything leftover, which also indicates there
    must be other newsgroups.

    There was a time when everyone coming to Usenet were told to read
    any given newsgroup before they post, so they can get an idea of
    what the newsgroup is about. ANyone reading this one for a bit would
    wonder where all the traffic is, which is also an indicator of how
    there must be other newsgroups. For that matter, it also makes
    one wonder why people post here rather than elsewhere, since virtually all
    the posts here would better fit elsewhere.
