Tivo desktop plus ??? Any luck?

Anyone have success installing Tivo Desktop Plus, Version 7?? I have no problem installing it within Vista, but it won't recognize the serial number within Win 7. I tried running it as an administrator and then used the "take ownership" tweak mentioned in the forums. Neither worked.

I did some searching on the Tivo Website. For some reason, I had to add the serial number to the Registry manually. After that, it worked fine. Do a search on the Tivo Website for instructions (Tivo Desktop Windows 7).
