Ive been using the v4 beta on 7068 without any issues. I nearly had a heart attack when it wouldn't start under 7077.
3.9 isnt bad but i do like the new features of v4. Hope someone sorts it out soon.

Is this just occurring on my system or is 7077 still not remembering the size and position of explorer windows? Vista (and previous Windows versions) always (well almost at least) remembered the size and position of each explorer folder when I opened it directly (e.g. with a shortcut). W7 always opens new windows near the previously opened one, which is terribly annoying for me...

Regards!

Wutsigu, it's been that way since Win7 7000 for me. It's super annoying and totally destroys my workflow.


For the intel graphics, remove all intel graphic drivers from your computer. By right clicking the display adapter in Device Manager and selecting uninstall should work okay. If there's a checkbox to "delete driver file" or something like it, select it. Then reboot. Then reboot again just to be sure. Next, install the latest driver from Intel.com for your display driver using normal settings. Do not set it to compatibility mode for Vista. You only use compatibility when something doesn't work right under your current OS, not to tell it which OS the program is designed for. Using compatibility mode needlessly can sometimes lead to lost features or bugs.

Hi FreakyFerret,

ok i can give this a go but i have to install it in compatability mode as on the intel site there are only vista drivers and they refuse to install unless i select compatability mode ?

There are no specific intel graphics drivers for windows 7

Cheers

Have you tried the XP ones?
Im only saying this when ever i run the compatibility wizard it seem to offer me XP rather than Vista.
Also my M-audio card needed XP drivers and wouldnt work with Vista ones.

Just an idea.

hi again,

well i just tried my gateway xp drivers, but after a restart it says it could'nt install those properly anyway. So i tried my gateway vista drivers, they came up with windows 7 not supported, then i got another screen saying do you want me to install these for best settings, so i let it do it, but these are having the same issues as the built in ones, plus the benchmark values were a lot lower.

hopefully attached is my error.

thanks

ok i think it's ok now, i uninstalled all my display drivers, then when i installed the latest intel vista drivers it came up again with windows 7 not supported then gave me the option to install using recommended settings. So now it's working ok at the moment. I will test it several times though.

Just need to setup newleecher again.

Thanks for all the input on this.

Vista and Win7 share the same driver base model thingamabob. You should be able to use Vista drivers for Win7 with no issue. XP drivers are built on an entirely different architecture, so you almost always want to avoid using those.

You can try to manually install them as well. Do not uninstall the drivers you have in place before doing this.

Uncompress the file you download from Intel.com to another folder. (Usually, when you run the install executable, it puts a copy of the uncompressed files somewhere on the harddrive. Clean out your temp folders. Run the executable. Check temp folders for a new folder listing all the drivers. Copy (don't move) this folder to somewhere else, like the desktop.)

Go to device manager. Right click the video adapter. Select Update Driver. When it gives options for what you want to do, select the bottom choice (manual or such). After that, continue selecting the bottom choice of the two options that continue popping up. Eventually, you'll get a dialog box that has a "Have Disk" button. Click that button, point to the folder you copied to the desktop.

At this point, it should automatically find the *.inf file that has the settings for your device. Select the one that best matches your device and follow through on the wizard.

Reboot and you should have things okay after this.
