Hi together!

I'm using the Trainer Manager, but none of my trainers finds its game. I have to put the trainer exe into the game folder to make it work.

It was ok on my old system, but I can't recall any setting I changed to make it work

Both systems are Win7 x64.

Thanks for any help.

disable/uninstall all AV, firewall and other security software. Right click and run trainers as Admin.

Tried that already!

BTW: MS Security Essentials were installed on the old system as well. Even running the trainers as admin was not necessary.

There must be some setting. But I can't figure out which one at the moment.

And believe me, I tried every obvious thing. As Dev and SysAdmin I think I know what I'm talking about.

As soon as I find out how to make everything work as before, I'll let you know.

Ok! Forget about it.

No setting, no AV, no firewall, just me.

When copying the trainers to MyTrainers I always give them (the EXE) the name of the game. As it happens sometimes (the ones I tried) they have the same name as the game EXEs. So how should the trainer find a game when there is another EXE with the same name - namely itself - in the process list?

Renaming the EXE of the trainer and voilá... Everything works fine.
