Windows 7: Build 7600 any changes?

Very straightforward. After doing the upgrade install I only had to install one driver for a synaptics touchpad plus reinstall my antivirus software. It's a good idea to deactivate or, even better uninstall any anti-virus apps before doing the upgrade and reinstall after. Also had to play around with Comodo Firewall pro to get it operating properly following the upgrade. All in all, pretty straightforward and working flawlessly after fixing the above mentioned things.

Thanks Peter. It's late here and I got to work tomorrow. I'll try an upgrade tomorrow night.
This will mean I'll have to do the rearming business I believe.
Can you automate that?

Cheers, John

the upgrade was VERY straightforward, and involved very minimal file tweakage, but i don't think i can discuss cversion.ini here, so i won't.

I have TV including DVB-T working under 7264 with a hauppauge card. When I first installed, the driver that w7 installed for the tv capture card was not good and I had some problems with TV. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't, could not find the device after resuming from sleep, etc.

I resolved them by installing the vista drivers for my device from hauppauge.

Everything works well now.

Automating the rearm, that I don't know, but I would think possibly with the windows task scheduler. However, I suspect you will be reinstalling or upgrading to the "gold" RTM release very shortly, way before the first 30 days are up and then, for those who have TechNet subscriptions, legal keys should be available also before the first 30 days have passed. Otherwise you can simply rearm until general availability.

If you are doing an upgrade install (as opposed to clean install) from an RC, you probably will need to do the MS W7 Engineering approved modification to the cversions file to be able to upgrade. The procedure is explained by MS here: Engineering Windows 7 : Delivering a quality upgrade experience

Occasionally, some programs need to be uninstalled and reinstalled after an upgrade install. Before abandoning the new version, it's a good idea to at least check and see if that plus a reboot or two solves the problems. It usually does for me.

I want to use Media Center as I have it all set up for movies, music, shoutcast radio and i just need the live TV to complete it. Using only the M$ DVD-DVT decoders seems to break TV and the system will not allow for 3rd party codecs even after disabling the M$ one in the registry and system32 folder.

I've heard that the RTM will not lock out 3rd party codecs but I'm not too sure how true the source is, and wondered if anyone else was using Windows 7 as a HTPC and found that build 7600 allowed the use of 3rd party codecs without registry hacks etc.

Have you tried Preferred DirectShow Filters Tool for Windows 7 ??

I have actually sorted the codecs out manually now, with registry hacks, renaming some system32 files and meriting them using radlight filter manager and have all codecs working the way I want, so I now know that it's to do with the TV Card, so will have to wait for Technisat to actually pull their fingers out and release some W7 BDA drivers, they are not the most helpful lot.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
