    How to install *any* version of SRIM/TRIM, and get the TRIM configuration utility TIN.EXE working? Otherwise everything works but TIN.EXE is completely unresponsive, eating some 30% CPU:

    TIN.EXE can only be stopped in taskmanager. I have tried installing SRIM on several systems and I always seem to get this problem.

    it seems you must install older version on windows XP , then install the newer on to run it.

    The same problem also with WinXP, with older and new SRIM. However, on a plain-vanilla WinXP with no UI tweaks at all it works flawlessly.

    Then, in http://www.srim.org/SRIM/SRIM 08.pdf I spotted following:
    Try this in Win 7, too, ... and now TIN.EXE works.

    I had always declared period as decimal point but this is apparently not sufficient. TIN.EXE seems to require that region has been declared as US.
