I did install it as an update to Vista, and not a clean install. Strange, everything else seems to work perfectly. My problem with Sony Sound Forge is not that I can't run it, but that I can't seem to register the 30 day trial version. Let me expand on this. Before I upgraded to Win 7, I was running the trial version with 20 days of functionality left on it. After upgrading to Win 7 and trying to run Sound Forge, the program stated that I had to re-register it with Sony servers. When I tried doing that, it kept giving me errors that it cannot complete the registration process and it gave me the error (-40). So I looked up what that code meant in the Sony's knowledge database and it said the following:
"This occurs because the user account is likely not the administrator account. The reason you are getting the error message is that your account does not have enough permissions to create the cookie portion of our Machine ID. You could try right clicking on the icon of the application and selecting to "Run As Administrator".
I checked my user account to make sure that I was listed as an admin and even tried to right click on the program icon and choosing the option of running it as an admin, to no avail. Now it may be that if you already purchased the software and entered the serial number, it would work fine and this problem is only restricted to the trial version of the software. As I do plan to plunk down 250 bucks and buy the full version, I wanted to make sure that it was compatible with Win 7 as I obviously do not want to revert to Vista.
Also, I did try to uninstall Sound Forge 9 trial and reinstall it as I thought that the program might have been corrupted during the OS upgrade, and it did not help the situation any.
