Boot Camp Control Panel Won't Open in Win 7 with 3.1 BC 64bit Drivers

October 11Hits:2

I have an early MacPro running both SL and Win7 64 bit, each OS on a dedicated drive. I installed BC 3.0 drivers previously without problem. I upgraded the BC drivers to 3.1.
Now, if I attempt to open the BC Control Panel, I get an error message stating I "don't have privileges to modify the startup disk." I have administrative privileges! I checked the properties of the Control Panel (resides in Win folder/sytem 32) and ensured that I have full user control. Also, I tried to open the Control Panel in compatibility mode with no success---same error message.
Anyone with a similar issue?? Anyone with a suggestion to resolve the problem.

I'm having same issue. I don't trust that simply adjusting Digital Vibrance is returning my colors to normal. This adjustmet just makes things grayer to me.
Problems started after:
Upgrading SL (10.6.2) on Mac side
Installing Bootcamp 3.0 from SL disk onto win 7.
Downloading and updating Bootcamp 3.1
Colors all look 16 bit and saturated, though nvidia control panel says color depth = 32 bit.
I've tried:
Rolling back my driver to previous settings
manually downloading and installing both nvidia driver versions separately (181.22 32bit + 197.13 64bit)
Also tried going to control panel checking for driver updates (says latest is installed).
I own eye-one display calibration hardware but don't want to go through this process until internal functioning appears normal.
Any suggestions out there for me?
Thanks,
Mike
