Software Issues Caused Me To Roll Back

After using an RC of Windows 7 Business and loving it I have had to re-install Vista (UGH!). I use a program from Webex called QB Remote Access for remote access to Quickbooks and they haven't been able to make it 7 compatible...yet. Hopefully by the 23rd of October they will because Windows 7 is pretty awesome.

Hi Roban,

Did you try all of the vista compatibility mode options? I have managed to get all the vista complient applications I've tried to work with Windows 7, QB Remote Access, is not one I have tried though

Thanks guys. When the final release comes out I'll be back asking for help on the install. I contacted the developer and they are working on it and hopefully it will be ready in time.

Hi there
why not install your vista app in a Virtual machine.
Vbox costs nothing and although I use vmware others say it installs easily and works fine.

That way saves you dual booting as well and you can start using W7 right now.

Cheers
