Windows 7: Windows Live, Incompatible Application!

Windows Live, Incompatible Application!

Not a problem, nothing important. Just funny:

If you have been using different Windows versions long enough, you certainly know about software incompability. 32-bit application will not always work on 64-bit platform, and so on. I´ve seen my share, been used to try problem software with different compability options.

But this I was not expecting to see. Latest version of Windows Live Mail, first run and I got incompability warning and had to run compability test (see image1). Had to change compability settings to XP Service Pack 2 to run Live Mail! (image2)

Latest version of Microsoft´s Windows, latest version of Microsoft´s Windows Live. Incompatible Application!

OK, I´m not having any parapsychological powers and I do not believe in ghosts, so I figured this is one of those things I can not understand when it happens but someday I´m going to understand it; one that gets "This is not a bug in our software, it is a built-in-feature in it" answer from Microsoft´s TechNet-gurus. So I uninstalled Live, reinstalled it and tried again. Same thing. Then I uninstalled it once more, rebooted and reinstalled, and now it works. No more compability warnings.

But I had my fun, Windows Live incompatible with Windows 7!
