No idea. They haven't responded to my emails.

I asked a journalist friend of mine (with News Ltd) if she knows of any prior issues involving House Party. She's going to check up with her US contacts (Australia here) to see if they're aware of any.
Man that sucks, I hope you get it resolved!
Oh and all's well here i still have confirmation

It is a totally normal Windows installation DVD. Installing only one copy, as told on the House Party website, means you can install and activate either a 32-bit or 64-bit copy, not both. 32-bit is the signature edition, 64-bit as an additional DVD.

Otherwise, it's just like any Windows DVD you buy. You can reinstall if needed.

Thank you very much. Well, looks like I've got all the info I need.
Have a fun party, guys!

We're having the party. My friends and family will not really notice that it is a Windows 7 party, if not for the balloons and all. I am always geeking on the tech stuff when we party.

So, I talked it out with my apartment people, and I can have the party as a part of my job even. So, I'm in charge of about 40 people, now I need to make it attractive and informative, not just about Win7, but tech in general.

my party has grown so large that i had to move it out of my house. my dad is a preacher so luckily i'm able to use his church to host it. and i've got a local tech store loaning several new windows 7 computers for the guest to play with as well as an HD projector for showing a film since im doing the media mania party. i'm looking at aprox 120-130 guests so far probably more by the time it gets here. so many people here are interested in upgrading and i've had a bunch of people calling me about wanting to upgrade. all i had to do to get the electronics store to donate the systems was agree to let them make a quick pitch letting the guests know they could purchase windows 7 and windows 7 computers from their store.

In fact it seems like you are hosting the Launch event for Windows 7 similar to techincal events. You could have the local stores have thier own booths to advertise their products and computers.

Windows 7 Global System EQ
I want to apply an EQ that affects all output from windows 7. So that means I have no interest in how to use the EQ in WMP, foobar or winamp etc... that is not global, that is app specific. I have a realtek soundcard and the latest drivers (R2.70) and am aware of the graphic EQ settings...
