Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit

I've just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 Professional 32Bit and I'm pleased to say the following all installed and are running with no problems at all:
  • Adobe Photoshop CS2 (I actually installed Photoshop 6 first ! which worked, and then I upgraded to CS2)
  • ZoneAlarm Internet Security v. 91_008_000
  • Canon Printer Driver V2.00 for Vista (my iP5200 printer works fine)
  • MS Office 2007 (obviously works fine !)
  • Palm Desktop and Hotsync Manager v6.2 (Hotsync with my Palm phone worked fine via Bluetooth connection).
I've not actually had any problems yet (touch wood) - so will post more successes when I get to install my other beloved applications.

I'm particularly pleased that Photoshop works, as it cost me lots, and I use it all the time. Same with my Palm software (I'm a die-hard Palm user !!). I was told these wouldn't work with Vista, hence I stuck with XP for so long. So perhaps MS have got it right now ?

I actually purchased 7 Pro as I assumed I'd need the XP emulator for software compatibility - but I've got no idea whether this is being used or not. All the above software apps are running with a Win 7 look, i.e. transparent window borders, curvy buttons I think they're actually just running fine on plain 7. Sorry, no screenshots yet.

Welcome Sharivari.
It's not an emulator - simply a way to actually run XP in a virtual space inside of Windows 7. I'm sure I'll be corrected, but I see its value as mainly for businesses that need to run proprietary software - and won't go down the upgrade path unless they can be sure to have this functionality.

Compatibilty mode (right click your troublesome program's exe) will fix most issues if you are having trouble getting full functionality out of a program.

Both this topic and the "great free programs" topic will alert you of the need to run some programs in compatibility mode.

The whole CS4 suite runs great for me tho some ppl have had some issues.

Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit

Thanks for the info Charles.

I expected that I'd need to use such a 'compatibility mode' but still surprised not have required it. So far, everything is just installing fine as if I was running XP ! I'll post these up once I'm happy they're all running OK, but so far so good (Roxio Media Creator 8, Dreamweaver MX 2004 etc..)
