WIN7 Ultimate 64bit
 
 

Hi
I found a lazy way of finding Progs/drivers that are not compatable with win7 (one of my older games stuck the first version of Visual C++ 1.1 which I hadn't noticed)

Just run the Windows 7 'Upgrade' Advisor program - works with WIN 7 installed too and lists progs/drivers that should be wiped off your PC.

Syntax for taking control of files in Win 7 (must be administrator!)
CMD Line

Files:
takeown /f file_name /d y
icacls file_name /grant administrators:F

Directories:

takeown /f directory_name /r /d y
icacls directory_name /grant administrators:F /t

Also dodgy processes and the like >
Search for 'EMSI Software a-squared Hijackfree'
Highly advanced prog (hope you really know what to wipe off) and should wipe any process/drivers off your PC.

save them to a new folder on your desktop, or to a place you normally download files to (do not open or run them)
right click each exe icon select properties and select compatibility tab
select "Run this program in compatibility for" WINDOWS XP (service pack 2)
also enter a tick in the check box for run as administrator

do this for both .EXE icons

run the usb driver file first
then run the pc studio

the USB files may fail to function at this stage, but its fine ....once you have installed pcstudio..and if you have errors on the USB files run them again....and they will work fine

1 more thing on the PC Studio icon that i splaced on your desktop after installation right click again and select properties compatibility win xp service pack 2 and administrator..and all should work samsung pc studio win7 fixed

Here's anther bit, might be important
Hi, I tried this on Win7 and it didn't work. I then retried it but using Vista (Service Pack 2) compatibility instead of XP and now its working fine.

So basically... do exactly as above but instead of setting it to compatibility mode XP (Service Pack 2) use Vista (Service Pack 2).
