Default Sonar Log Viewer (SLV)

I use to use Lowrance's sonar log viewer software on my PC with window vista. But, now I have a new PC with window 7, but sonar log viewer deos not function with window 7. Is there any thing I could do to make the software function on my PC.
Any input are apreciated.

Try "emulation mode". Create an icon for the software on yoru desktop, then right click on that icon and select Properties, go to Advanced (I thing, something like that), and look for "Legacy Windows Emulation mode" or something similar to that... May or may not work...

Great feature by the way. I wish Garmin would give us a Sonar recording/playback addition to the HomePort software!

They don't have something like that on there? Thought I seen it once...

im no computer wiz, but try it and when it asks do you want to replace the copy you have click yes. i used a 4gig sd card to log some sonar, mainly trying to adjust the gain at speed.
