I'm curious if there are other ways to get Windows 7 to be more compatible with certain programs than just running them in "compatability mode"? The problem that I've run into is with some of my more complex programs like Solidworks. The copy I have isn't really compatible with Windows 7 so that whenever I try to open a file or save one, the program just crashes. I've found a fix for the problem, which involves renaming a DLL, but such a fix is almost always trouble in my experience, with this one being no exception, making the program very unstable and corrupting saved file data. Now, since I use this program almost every day, I've found myself thinking about going back to Vista x64 because it worked there, but I wanted to stop by here just to make sure there isn't a better way to deal with compatibility issues than simply running the "compatibility troubleshooter" that I might not yet know about that could solve my problem.
Any help would be great,
