Default Re: Windows 7 Application Compatibility Thread

Acronis 2009, Nero 8, PowerDVD 7 Deluxe not working? That sucks as I have all three.

I am planning on going to Windows 7 Professional 64 bit sometime in the future. I'm excited about it on one hand and leary on the other on how many of my programs that I don't want to lose are not going work anymore. I sure hope that "XP Mode" really works.

I have absolutely no confidence in the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor because of the results I'm getting. It says my X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Pro is plain incompatible with Windows 7 and I know that's not the case. It's not flagging any of the above programs I have (or any of the other programs I have for that matter) about compatibility issues. I know it's still Beta but I would think the damn thing would be more accurate two months before Windows 7 is supposed to be officially released.

For people posting here, when you are talking about what works and what doesn't, PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU ARE USING 64 BIT OR 32 BIT WINDOWS 7. Even that game link is full of people who aren't doing that (even when the beginning poster explicitly said to specify) and it really is messing with the accuracy of the results.
