Why are you asking us instead of Rockwell? Not only are they in a better position to answer questions about their product, but it's their responsibility.

Did you "run as" an administrator?
You didn't mention 32 or 64 bit W7.

I don't know exactly how I managed it, but I do have RSLogix v20 running on several Windows 7 machines, both 32 and 64 bit. It's one of those things where you just try various options until something works.

Good luck.

Did you get anywhere with this? I have this problem now.

I am running it fine on win 7. I have seen issues with the my documents folder location and rights, with wifi being on when installing and with a dialog box popping up under the install window asking you to do something. I accidentally found that one by alt tabbing and getting it.

Sorry, hard to fix from here.

Try running as Administrator. I had the same issue and it worked for me.

Have you got any solution? I am also facing the same problem; I couldn't find the solution.

HI Arun,

Please try to run the RSlogix 5000 Ver 20 (any minor rev) using Windows 7 XP mode.

Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 is a downloadable add-on, it is not installed by default. The download link is the following:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8002

To learn how to use XP Mode, just follow these instructions:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh859554.aspx

Hope this helps

It has happened twice to me. Solution I found (other on line posting) was to delete the .rnl file in Factory Talk Activation accessed through C:\ProgramData\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Activation\

Happens I think when computer goes into sleep mode.
