Windows 7: Symantec Ghost v14.0

Vista Home Premium
Symantec Ghost v14.0

Does anyone know if Ghost v14.0 is currently compatible with Win7? The Symantec website is a nightmare and I have been unable to find the answer there.

Vista Home Premium

Thanks very much for the reply. I didn't want to buy it if it wasn't going to work. I currently use Acronis TrueImage Home 2009. Since the latest build has come out (9796) I have been unable to access the Internet, though my home network is OK (that is currently on Windows Vista). I have had to "go back" to the previous build for everything to work again.
Other people have had similar problems and I have tried the options they gave me, including those from Acronis Tech. Support, but nothing worked so I gave up.

I have used Ghost many, many years ago, but found Acronis to be more "user friendly" back then. Now the tables are reversed.

I am currently still running Vista HP, and keep dipping my toes into the Windows7 waters with the RC. I "toggle back and forth". Not via a dual boot though. I prefer not to use that route..

Thanks again.

Hi, I upgraded my laptop from Vista Business to Windows 7 Ultimate x86 7264 (hopefully that's a stable release). It seems that Symantic Endpoint Protection 11 is not compatible with Windows 7. How is your experience? Cheers
