Cannot get it to install on Windows 7 for a 305
I have a Garmin Forerunner 305 and am trying to no avail to get the 'Communicator' plugin to install on my Windows 7 PC. The program is shown in Control Panel but whenever I try the communcator test page it tells me that the plugin is not installed.
I've tried uninstalling (As per Garmin's instructions) and re downloading the program and ensuring that the active x controls are enabled as per the Garmin website. Can anyone a bit more techie help????
Thanks Weevil. We have just the one user account on this laptop so it's probably not that. Did find a very long convuluted process to go through (which didn't work!) from Garmin but eventually they just conceded that you had to use Firefox!
Is it me, or after so many problems should they not have fixed the problems with various internet browsers by now????
That is really odd, I'm using a Dell laptop with Windows 7 and IE 8 too . Technology ,don't you just love it!
I've had my 305 for about three years now and I really wouldn't be without it. Hence my continuing attempts to get it working again! Must look into the foot pod though, haven't tried that yet
Finally - Go to Chrome Settings, Advanced Settings, Privacy, Content Settings, Plugins and Check "Run Automatically". This fixed it for me in Chrome. In addition to having IE set as my default Browser (will change it back to Chrome now). Hope that helps.
I think JT may have sorted the issue between the time of her last post and yours Kapil - she's had over 2 years to do so......
