Ok everything worked except I am running it on a 32" widescreen and it only wants to go 1024 X 768 for the largest size so now I have black showing on the sides of my desktop. It worked on vista going the full 13?? X ??? "Cant remember size 13 something" I haven't put in my registration or product code yet either, Hope it takes it since I did the full install instead of the upgrade.
