Windows 7: Software Issues Caused Me To Roll Back

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

My collegue is right. If you are interested and have the time we can help walk you thru the compatibility mode install.

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 Windows 7 right now.

Cheers
