o&o doesn't have a blue screen either, just a blank black screen.

yes i see; blank is not the same as blue

Edit- Try selecting "Run as admin" in the O&O.exe properties; it did the trick for perfectdisk.

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.

nero 8 will work, if you use the latest version

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...29&postcount=8

just don't install from your retail disc.

Yeah your right. It's busted with Vista SP2 and W7 (both 64bit). I have successfully used the recovery disk (USB drive) without any issues (backup and recovery). The only issue is it's as slow as pond water in early spring.

As far as I'm concerned I will never but acronis ever again, after the build 97xx? debacle (Vista/W7 64bit), they can kiss where the sun doesn't shine.

My original powerdvd 7 ultra (online purchase) installs and seems to run fine but when I try to run the latest patch, which btw is badly needed, it removes everything due to it failing at the very end. It is getting old tho so I can't hold it against them.

This is the patch in question; "CyberLink.5105_TaRe42_DVD090217-02"
Don't run it on a Win7 x64 install


I can also confirm that the latest Nero 8 does install and runs 100% on Win7 x64.

Edit- The latest Nero 8 is 8.3.13.0

Nero 8 works perfectly fine under Win7 64-bit, Nero 7 too which I still use because Nero 8 and above are too bloated.

PerfectDisk 10's boot time defragmentation works for me since ever the application was released, maybe a special configuration of your PC makes this operation fail.

Anyway, I just noticed today that there is a new update available for PD10 which fixes "some" boot time defrag bug...

Thanks Morrow. I was able to get everything working even older PD10 builds by running it as an admin but you are correct that the latest 119 build fixes everything and is even Win7 certified.

I also broke down and upgraded my PDVD to version 9 and all is well there too. I found it at g2play for less than the upgrade price so I said the hell with it

Default Re: Windows 7 Application Compatibility Thread

not really an application issue but a driver.

on my MSI ATI 780G board realtek LAN didn't work correctly

when i was using windows 7 driver Local areal network was limited to about 400-900kbps when receiving data from another realtek NIC, when receiving from intel nic it was fine.

I had to downgrade the driver on the MSI ATI board to vista driver from June 2008 and now network transfer speed is about 20-40mbps still slow for gigabit lan.

Anyone try ultramon on 7 yet? It keeps crashing windows explorer for some reason more often on shutdown. I think it might be because I'm trying to run two different backgrounds but I'm not 100%. Also its kinda crazy that its been in beta for like three years now (vista/win7 version).

Using Ultramon w/ no problem here. So far all the programs work. Have to do more tests, but so far so good.

Thanks I'll try it again as I think I have found what my real problem was with many things.

On a similar note PowerDVD 7 also works as long as you don't install the latest patch (CyberLink.5105_TaRe42_DVD090217-02). The last patch before that (CyberLink.4617a_TaRe38_DVD081201-07) works just fine on Windows 7.
Weird thing is is that the 4617a is the latest on their website and the 5105 is the one that powerdvd update keeps nagging about. I wonder if its doing it on purpose to force you to upgrade to the latest version..
