I'm using UVMapperPro v3.6d on a Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

I'm finding that may menus and/or sub-menus are grayed out. For instance, all the View>View sub-menu is un-usable this way.

Am I overlooking something?

Welcome to the forum.

Do you have a model loaded into the program?  You must do that before many options become useable.

Hello Dan!

Yes, I do have a model loaded. In fact it was while trying out the tutorial to relax the UVs when I first noticed it, as the second and lower quadrants of the View Menu are also grayed out.

Thanks for the Welcome!

Then I do not know what to tell you.  I know of no other reason for it to be greyed out.

Okay. I'll keep messing with it and if a solution turns up, I'll let you know.  Otherwise, it still does what I need it most to do, and does it fine!

For the record, I typoed earlier.  It's version 3.6c that I have, of course.

Thanks again.

You are welcome.  I am still running windows xp pro 64 bit.  Maybe somebody with win 7 will chime in here with a solution.

Same here. UVMapper V 3.6c and Win 7 64 SP1.

Never use this so I didn't notice before.

I usually run on XP 32 bit, but I installed on a WIndows 7 Pro 64 bit machine that I happened to have on test, and UVMP 3.6c worked fine as far as I can see. No greyed out items, anyway.

That won't be very helpful, I know, but at least it tells you that it should work. 

Note: the forum is currently broken and won't send me notifications unless I post in the thread. I am therefore reliant on manually checking threads where I remember posting and may appear to be ignoring you. This is not necessarily the case. :)

Thanks for the welcome.

Hope I'm not commiting heresy here but, Ive used both UV mapper and Lithunwrap and I believe (in my opinion) Lithunwrap is far superior it's free and it runs just fine in windows 7.

I have not had much luck with Lithunwrap, but you are free to discuss it here on the forum.
