Windows 7 RTM Programs Compatibility List

Recommended Posts

Most things i tested on win7 7077 x64 are already listed here. the ones i didnt see are below:

xFire latest release by date of post works well.

Unreal Tournament 3 patched to 2.0 works well.

ATI Catalyst 9.4: driver ok, CCC does NOT work.

Realtek Azalia: Vista driver installs fine but won't install Control Panel - copied over all necessary files from Vista 32 Bit install and voilá it works...

Office 2007 ok on Desktop, not on netbook (won't start, needs to much ram).

peerguardian latest vista-alpha release does not work - it already has probs on vista and development has stopped.

Trillian Astra beta works well.

Easy BCD works well.

VLC works well.

Creative X-FI drivers (Beta for Win 7) work well.

Daemon Tools 4.30.305 include SPTD Driver 1.58 and install and run on Windows 7.

this for now...

Comodo Firewall does not work with 7077 according to my test in Virtual PC. I get a blue screen.

The last build Comodo worked with was 7057. After that, it seems MS went on a tangent with the security "kernel" (correct terminology?).

Only hope is for Comodo to updates it's firewall to make it compatible with Windows 7.

AutoIt 3.3 (At least the compiled .Exe's created in AutoIt)

rdeploy 6.8 (Imaging software similar to ghost).

Well, here's my RC build 7100 list so far:

These work without a problem:

* Microsoft Office 2007 SP2

* Avast Antivirus 4.8.xxx

* AI Roboform 6.9.xxx

* UltraISO 9.3.xxx

* Winrar 3.8

* CoreAVC

* Firefox 3.0.10 (I wish they would update the jumplist feature like for IE)

* Notepad2

* CCleaner 2.xxx

* Media Player Classic

* Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (x64)

* Microsoft Virtual PC (x64)

* Microsoft Money 2007

Doesn't work:

* Comodo Firewall (still causes blue screen :angry: )

The best build for Comodo Firewall compatibility has been 7057. After that, none are compatible according to my observation.

I updated my previous post here to build 7100 and did an overall cleanup.

I'll test again all apps I tested in Beta to make the post less confusing.

Whoa! You might want to use a darker shade of green. I can barely read the bright green text.

Agreed - against the blue background, it's almost completely illegible.

at last, my phone SE w960i can connect with windows 7 RC 7100.

on beta, SE PC Suite cannot be installed, even after using Troubleshoot Capability.

now it can be installed, but still with Troubleshoot Compability. and i use the msi file, not setup direct from CD installer.

but kaspersky internet security 7.0.1.325 now cannot be installed. it says driver compability :(

now i use ESET Smart Bussines for antivirus.

Kaspersky has a version of their antivirus product specifically built for Win7, and other product versions are not slated to have updates for Win7 until RTM, so this is not surprising.

I tried Kaspersky's Beta v.8.0.0.1081 on RC x86 and I didn't like it's absence of "rules" for applications so it was hard for me to tell what was legit or not. I now use v.8.0.0.506 (although not designed for 7) and it's works B-E-A-utifully!!

PowerDVD v.5.0.1107 (old, but it worked since 2003 since I don't need Blue-Ray)
