    I found a problem with installation.

    It seems the installer is looking for "BattCursor 1.2" but when I unzip the download, it creates a folder name of "BattCursor%201.2"

    This is usually a web issue, as spaces are not allowed on web. Change the name of your zips to BattCursor_1.2 or BattCursor-1.2. Don't use spaces on the web.

    @Sacke: I use Windows 7 x64, too. The installer and the application works on both x86 and x64 systems. Please try to download again with another browser.

    There are known problems with Opera Browser. You should get a .zip file, not an .exe file!

    Even the web installer complains about 64-bit.

    Addendum: Windows 7 64bit. Computer HP HDX18

    Complains about that my computer is a 64-bit. Won't install.

    @Nic: Backlight dimming does work on Windows 7 :) Try to get updated chipset drivers for your laptop. Some OEM Software may also cause this problem.

    Fantastic software, but 1 major problem with the new version. The backlight dimming function (which is critical to saving battery) does not function with Windows 7.
