Default Re: A few things about Windows 7 beta....gadgets not loading? GTA IV? more.

3. GTAIV.exe needs to be run in compatibility for Vista or XP SP2 when installing GTA IV.

4. Some drivers might require Vista compatibility mode to install but all Vista drivers work ing Windows 7; at least everything I've used.

5. You can unpin everything and create a Quick Launch toolbar. My Windows 7 quick launch looks just like Vista. You have to goto toolbars, new toolbar and create it. Then you can disable the title and text, drag it to the left and bingo.

Anymore bugs and fixes post them here.
