When I use the Tools | Surfer | Base Map or Grid Data commands under Windows Vista, either nothing happens or I get an error that a problem was encountered in the Surfer automation client.

When an older version of Surfer 8 is installed on Windows Vista, and the Surfer program is set to run as administrator, nothing may happen or you may receive an error when using the Tools | Surfer | Base Map or Grid Data commands. Updating to version 8.08 solved this problem.

Please go to Help | About Surfer to see which version of Surfer 8 you are using. If you are not using 8.08, go to Help | Check for Update to update to 8.08. Once this version is installed, you should be able to create the base map or grid your data.
