windows 7 RC
It works

Just follow the directions on this link. It works fine for me. You can actually just drag the installer into the cmd prompt and it will auto fill for you then just type " /force" after it. there is a space between the .exe and the backslash.

windows 7 RC

I think this is as good of a fix as we're going to get. In their defense though all you have to do is type a line on the cmd prompt and it works fine. I never had a problem while it was installed on 64-bit vista and still haven't had any troubles with it in windows 7
