Protools 7.4 and Windows 7

No it wont. You need to get Pro Tools 8 and update to 8.0.3

The problem is not in Win7 but it is in IE8,so here is the solution for this problem.You need to fix registry with this file.

Pro Tools Internet Explorer 8 Fix.rar

or this one

Thats not true. IE8 is not the problem. Only a few people have IE8 problems, but thats only with selected plug ins. Iv already posted the way to work around an IE8 problem on the first page. That said, its usually a problem with the way you have your PC setup and the hardware. I have IE8 with no work around and have been running in Windows 7 since it was released. Its more important to always Run As Admin. Most problems with IE8 were with XP. PT 8.0.3 has been fixed to minimize IE8 problems, read the white papers for it.

Pro Tools 8 M-Powered is Approved for Windows 7 64 bit. Just download the updates for PT and the correct drivers.

Interesting workaround. However Pro Tools 7.4 will NEVER be officially approved for Windows 7. So if you need stability you may want to stick with XP if you dont upgrade to PT 8. PT 8.0.3 runs smooth in Windows 7 for most, but it is still beta, and we expect final approval within a couple of month.
