You can build anything from nothing with this. Haven't tried it in 7 yet, though. Maybe someone who has can tell me if it's still meeting up with it's reputation ?
Yes, it look awesome. Unfortunately, however, I was not able to run it as it was not compatible with 7-surprising, but that is the error which I encountered when trying to install it after having downloaded the v1.6.43 program from Samurize.

you know I was getting the same error when trying to install, it would say only for XP and 2003, then a window would come up asking if you want to reinstall or quit. I finally hit re-install and it worked...it installed and works great.
