Astrology for Windows version 2.3i details

As of July 23, 2007, version 2.3i of Astrology for Windows became available for download. Version 2.3i fixes a Windows Vista display problem that was aborting the install program.

Version 2.3 of Astrology for Windows is a 16-bit program which can have some issues when trying to print to a printer that connects to a USB port instead of to the normal parallel printer port. If the chart printing doesn't work, producing an error such as the error 6 Overflow error, then get out to Start, My Computer and in drive C:\ navigate to the \winastro folder. Right-click on the AST4WIN.EXE file and in Properties, Compatibility Mode, select Windows 95 or Windows 98. This works for most USB printers under Windows XP/Vista. Another solution is to get a $12 parallel printer cable to connect the printer to the computer's parallel printer port, LPT1:. There have been a couple of cases where the printer port was in use and the customer had a USB port multi-function device which could not be made to print from the 16-bit Astrology for Windows.

As of June 20, 2009, Halloran Software started shipping a CD with a 32-bit version 2.5 of Astrology for Windows for $27.00 plus $3.00 shipping. As a 32-bit program, it completely supports printing to USB-port printers and networked printers. It also works on 64-bit computers. To find out if this is what you have, click on Start and and right-click on My Computer or Computer and select Properties. Under General and Computer, it should tell you if you have a 64-bit processor.
