Windows 7: Encarta Compatability

19 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1
Encarta Compatability

I own Encarta 2007 Standard and wanted to install it on Win 7 64 bit for my son.
A check with MS Win 7 compatability center makes no mention of Encarta 2007 standard but says 2008 standard is (X) not compatible and 2007 Premium (whatever that is) needs a paid upgrade.
Before doing a clean reinstall I had Encarta 2007 standard running.
Any comments? Is it safer not trying to install it?

I have Encarta 2007 Installed and all is working well. The one minor issue is that the Encarta Search Feature under Windows 7 x64 can make the taskbar look a little wonky, but nothing major. You get this warning when you enable it, but I enable it any way as it does work.

Bottom line, no real show stoppers to keep from installing Encarta :)

Incidentally I think 2008 was the last Encarta update, so no more Encarta

Microsoft to kill Encarta later this year
When I first saw this, I had to do a double take. I made sure it wasn't April 1 at least three times before I conceded. While looking around Encarta's homepage today, I stumbled on a message that Microsoft was getting rid of MSN Encarta completely: "On October 31, 2009, MSN Encarta Web sites...
