Install and configure Ares in Windows 7
Ares is one of the applications of peer file transfers (known as P2P) most used in the family environment. Some times this applications gets some errors like ares wizard not working and it gets strucked.
In this video of the Windows guide we explain how to install Ares in Windows 7 and how to take the first steps in the configuration of it. We also commented on how to move the download folder (known as My Shared Folder ) instead, since by default it is quite hidden and inaccessible.
I leave the download link of the official version of Ares (do not download others as they can bring Virus or Spyware)
In case the Ares does not connect in Windows 7 I recommend that in principle wait (I have played on some PCs that take more than half an hour to connect) or in any case restart the program first and then the PC.
I have not seen Ares without connecting in Windows 7 (for now) but it seems that many people do. For all of them I made a post with solutions for when Ares does not connect in Windows 7 .
One of the articles in which more questions are leaving us is to install Ares in Windows 7 . No wonder, Ares, that well known file exchange program has its connection problems and the new Windows 7 does not escape this.
Some solutions that I have tried and usually work:
1) Configure Ares in compatibility mode with Windows XP.
Just right click on the program shortcut, choose properties and in the Compatibility tab leave the compatibility mode checked as follows:
You can also try checking the option Execute this program as administrator .
2) Open the Windows firewall to allow the connection of Ares .
Maybe when you installed Ares you did not allow the connection from the outside, to do this, you must:
- Go to the control panel
- In the Windows Firewall menu, select Allow a program through the firewall .
Once you enter there, do the following:
- Click on the Change settings button .
- Find the Ares line and leave the two options checked.
Well, I hope that one of these tips will solve your problem and now you can dedicate to download music and play Mario. In case you know someone else share it in the comments that I will try and add.
