What programs don't work in Win7? So far I've not run into a single problem. I even decided I wanted to play Age of Mythology again the other day, installed and runs without a problem, and it's going on ten years old.
I use a program called act, an older version 5.0, which I can't get to work on win 7. I've got 2 different versions of it as well, both version 5 technically but one is called act, another is called act 2000. Sadly I cannot get either to work on win 7 (64 bit)
I bought a new HDD and used that to install win 7 on rather than formatting my xp drive and the machine automatically asks which OS I want to boot into which is awesome. I was expecting to have to disable one HDD in the bios each time I wanted to boot into windows but win 7 was smart enough to make that process simple.
I was able to get act 2000 to work on 32 bit windows vista which makes me think that the problem is the 64 bit os not being able to run a 32 bit program. This is the only program I've tried using the compatability mode with and it's frustrating that it can't simply make it work.
I'm buying a copy of act 6 off ebay in hopes that maybe that one will work in win 7. If not act 7, and so on. I tried their latest version but at some point they went from a handy little contact manager to a bloated database system that is way too much for what I need....hopefully 6.0 will work.
