It seems that GRE Powerprep software does not automatically run in Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating system. If you are facing the problem, you can try this simple trick that does the magic -

1. Install powerprep.
2. Find the program in your start/run menu
3. Right-click on the power-prep icon.
4. Choose 'Run As Administrator'
5. Powerprep runs 👍

If you are facing problems, please share them in response to this post. We'll be happy to help.
@ISHAN TOPRE • 23 Jun, 2011 What is a powerprep software? Is it a software to help study GRE?
@dsx • 07 Mar, 2013 I still can't run the Program (GRE PowerPrep II). I have Windows 7 and IE9.

1. I Open it with Run as Administrator
2. I click on 'Allow Blocked Content'
3. I click 'Yes' on the ActiveX warning Box
4. I click On Continue... and nothing loads.
@Kaustubh Katdare • 07 Mar, 2013 dsx : There's a chance that the installation media is corrupt. Did you download the software from official website? Or did you test the installation on other machine (maybe your friends' ?).
@davala • 27 Aug, 2013 I have windows 7 and IE 8 and i have downloaded from ETS..... powerprep 2 is not working. ...I followed all the above steps mentioned but unable to load when clicked on continue
@Sashankg10 • 15 Nov, 2013 You must use Internet Explorer 6 or higher to launch the POWERPREP II software.
Please re-open POWERPREP II from the Start menu entry or call for assistance.
NOTE: In addition, you must allow ActiveX on this page in order to continue.


These are the commands that are prompting while following the above protocols... What to do ???
@Sashankg10 • 15 Nov, 2013 and i am IE9
@zqhbbb • 23 Feb, 2014 I got the same issue, is there anybody can solve it now?
And I am IE10
@Ankita Katdare • 23 Feb, 2014 Unfortunately, you can't use it with Windows 7 Home Addition so you'll have to find a way to upgrade.
You can download a program by Microsoft called Windows Virtual PC which allows you to run Windows XP from Windows 7.
@Gracia • 19 Sep, 2014 Hello,

I had the same problem before, but now I have no trouble by following:

1. Open the folder where you have installed the POWERPREP 2,
e.g I have installed it :

Folder

2. Double click on" Launch(type: Windows Batch File)" , showed above

3. Wait a moment and the" GRE Practice Test Launch Screen" will appear

Good Luck, I hope it will help you.

@Muna Akheel • 31 Aug, 2015 Thank you so much Gracia!! You are an Angel ! 😀
@Gauresh7492 • 12 Sep, 2015 Guys, I also faced the same below problem.
PROBLEM : I opened GRE powerprepII . it goes till the continue option and doesn't load further.

Solution : You must have installed powerprepII in the non-windows(other than OS) drive.
Install software and JAVA in the OS drive and then start it normally or as administrator.
Remember only IE 6 and higher versions are supported.
Also go to Tools in IE - Internet Options - Advanced - Settings - Security - check all allow active content check boxes.
It will work 😀
@shreeja.visweswaraiah • 03 Nov, 2015 for those whom the above solution didnt work.

Go to the installed folder ../ETS/POWERPREPII/
go to bin folder bin/
Double-click on the I.bat which is a windows batch file.
