Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

As this thread is for software that doesn't work properly yet on Windows 7, it's best to post your problem in a new thread in the appropriate forum section. Please explain with as much detail as you possibly can on the problem and hopefully someone will be able to help out.

Windows 7 x64 7100

FileZilla (SFTP) seems to hang the entire OS when I try to copy a file to the desktop.

If you see my other post in the general forum, I have no errors in the log, which means I have no idea what's happening.

Win7 Pro 32-bit, Win8 Pro 32-bit

While DirectoryOpus does install and work, the newer versions ( and won't install, claiming that the OS is not the right version.

Update: Downloaded the very latest version from the DirOpus site, and it still complained about the OS version -- and was able to "force" the installation. It does actuall work. So, I'll add a post to the other forum about this.

Sorry for any confusion.
