Default Windows 7 Application Compatibility Thread

So far I found few apps that don't want to function with Win7, probably can fixed easily with a small fix.

1) TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress - simply crashes on startup
2) TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4 - crash on startup
3) Active@ KillDisk 5- crash
fixed in 5.1
4) Active@ Partition Recovery 5.1 - crash
fixed in 5.3
5) Acronis® True Image Home 2009 - crashes, 2009 will never be w7 compatible
according to Acronis, will have to buy True Image Home 2010 for Win7 use

Nero 8 and PowerDVD 7 Ultra don't work either. I know they're old but I was kinda hoping I wouldn't have to upgrade since they did all I needed them to do very well

Sorry I'm a dumb , the latest 8.3.13.0 works just fine. There's nothing that I can do for powerdvd tho so I picked up bs player pro and so far it seems like its going to be the only media app im going to need. I'm surprised I've never heard of it before tbh.
Thanks and sorry about that

Heads up

O&O Defrag 11, don't use/try boottime defrag, will not work

What will happen is computer will be stuck in black screen, and will never get to login screen.

workaround, if you get stuck in black screen. hard reboot, go to safe mode. In safe mode disable O&O service. Then boot into normal mode, then turn the service back on, and disable boot time defrag.

Orb does not function correctly for Live TV streaming to your iPhone (and other products).

Logitech G-15 keyboard does not have an application for the LCD for the RTM. RC and other beta's worked fine.

-edit-

Fyi, you can always install the beta drivers for Logitech. Use at own risk.

I've been using the latest logitech vista drivers for my G15 and mouse on win7 rtm with no issues. Just had to run the installer in Vista SP2 mode and as an admin.
On a similar note PerfectDisk 10 also fails to run a boot time defrag. Not a blue screen but it complains it cannot access the HD possibly due to a driver conflict.
