I've been a fan of enso http://www.humanized.com/enso/ for quite a while, but for the past several years I've had problems with it crashing, I've never been able to get it work reliably with Windows 7. Has anyone had any luck with this? I've tried the open source edition but it hasn't been any better (when I can get it to install at all) and development is moving pretty slowly. Has anyone had any luck getting enso to work reliably on Vista or 7?
Yes - I think I've cracked it (partially).
If I disconnect my (physical) LAN connection before starting enso, it launches fine. Then I can plug my LAN back in and all is well.
Perhaps there's a fault in some "phone home" logic that is bypassed when the connection is down?
I suspect perhaps changing the windows 7 rules/permissions may help, but I've not had time to test.
