    My MacBook Pro is the early 2008 model, but I find that this app is not working anymore after I have upgraded to 64-bit Windows 7 from 32-bit Windows XP. So is there any solution to get it working again?

    Try running as admin.  You can change the properties to reflect that.  BTW, I'm also running Windows 7 64-bit and haven't had any problems so there's hope for you.  Let us know if running as administrator works.

    Thanks mate. It works again after running with admin.

    I have a MacPro (2,1) running Windows 7 x64 (not under Bootcamp but directly booting to it as the sole OS)

    Ever since I have changed the graphics card to something more modern (from ATI X1900 to ATI HD 5870), front 2 fans have become incredibly noisy.

    I have tried to solve that issue with MacFan but it does not seem to work at all.

    Here is the screen text:

    [b]>MacFanx64.exe 600 1000 1000 600[/b]
    MacFan Version .65 Build 11.3.2009.4
    Checking running processes for conflicting programs...
    Number of fans in the system: 4
    Fan #0 (  ) is currently running at 596 rpm.
    The slowest Fan #0 can run seems to be 500 rpm.
    The fastest Fan #0 can run seems to be 2900 rpm.
    Fan #1 (  ) is currently running at 2821 rpm.
    The slowest Fan #1 can run seems to be 500 rpm.
    The fastest Fan #1 can run seems to be 2900 rpm.
    Fan #2 (  ) is currently running at 1541 rpm.
    The slowest Fan #2 can run seems to be 500 rpm.
    The fastest Fan #2 can run seems to be 2900 rpm.
    Fan #3 (  ) is currently running at 655 rpm.
    The slowest Fan #3 can run seems to be 600 rpm.
    The fastest Fan #3 can run seems to be 2800 rpm.
    Attempting to set your fans to specified speeds.
    *****  Setting fan 1 RPM to 600
    *****  FAN 1
    Setting Fan RPM to 600 OK!
    *****  Setting fan 2 RPM to 600
    *****  FAN 2
    Setting Fan RPM to 600 OK!
    *****  Setting fan 3 RPM to 600

    *****  Setting fan 4 RPM to 600
    *****  FAN 4
    FAN MANUAL: 2816320
    Setting Fan RPM to 600 OK!
    Setting fan speeds failed. Please contact the developer at sourceforge.net/macfan for help.
    

    Any idea why this is so?

    I am prepared to be a lab-rat if you have any alfa/beta ideas/apps to test.
