    Great. Thanks, I'l be getting this so there'll be no torture after 3 months.

    I just tested it out and I need to install something called WAIK from MS that is like over 1 GIG!? Too bad. vLite just lost my attention.

    A lt of readers may remmber threads such as this, from the early Vista days.
    Another site I was on, in the end, decided to reverse the procedure and start listing programs which did not work, as the list of working programs was beginning to get to long and meaningless. I suspect that, with the forthcoming Beta, the same situation will arise with "7" (??)

    Hi Davehc

    I think the ideal for a Beta OS would probably be three lists namely ...


    1. A "Whitelist" of applications that work "Out of the box"
    2. A "Blacklist" of applications that are totally incompatible
    3. Applications which although they don't work out of the box, can be made to work [with a link to instructions to make it work]

    This system would allow anyone thinking of installing a particular program a better place to start than just a single list. If an application is not on any of the lists then the user can try to install, report back to the Forum and eventually, get it placed on the appropriate list.

    Hi All,

    Have just downloaded and installed the Vista Codec Pack and it is working ok
    Version 5.0.2

    I know that 7's native support is better than vista's but to mis-quote Dire Straights "I need my .FLV"

    not sure if this is right forum to post into so if Admin/Mods think it's better elseware please move it

    StackOverflow,

    You dont need to install that, if you go to this link:-http://www.msfn.org/board/Tutorial-Build-Windows-t114957.html

    where it says 'Requirments' download the windows imaging driver
    RapidShare: Easy Filehosting
    and put the 3 files into the appropriate folder and it does work!!
    its been a while since i did this, so cant remeber the exact folder.

    Good Luck!!

    Not a bad ideal Nigel and Dave, but this is a list of FREE GREAT (must have) programs for Windows 7. Not a works with Windows 7 list.

    Hello Brink....:)

    I have been using Frameworkx (Vista Shortcut Manager) to remove the shortcut arrow for a while on 7 and it doesn't seem to be causing any problems so far. I had it on the last install and just added it to this one without incident.

    A word of warning re: Comodo Firewall. It is an internet connection buster when it uninstalls and it also BSOD'd on me twice in the process of uninstalling & it did not do it cleanly and I had to spend at least an hour cleaning up the registry...they don't appear to have a removal tool. So I had to rely on System Restore in the end.
    I'm staying with Windows Firewall for now and keeping my fingers crossed that it and Avast will protect me.
