    Default Windows 7

    Its official! Windows 7 is available to the public, starting today!

    But will Vixen work under the new OS? 2.5 may not but I am sure 3.0 will, which should be out next year.
    Thanks,

    My understanding is that it does, mostly. I should know soon.

    I’ve been waiting a week to be able to purchase a new laptop. Apparently everything at Best Buy was sent back to the manufacturers to get re-imaged to Window 7.

    To get anything good, it appears that the processor will have to be 64-bit. I know there are issues with Vixen 2.5 pertaining to output control but I only intend to sequence with it and not run the show; I have an old boat anchor laptop for that.

    The funding has been approved by my chief financial officer (aka wife) so the purchase should happen by this week end.

    Well that is good news then. No reason not to get Windows 7. After all, the only thing that matters is that Vixen runs!

    Are these successful attempts on the 32 bit version of Windows 7, the 64 bit version, or both? It is nice to have this info available the day the OS is released.

    Brian,
    I got in on the Houseparty.com hosue party for windows 7, I am throwing it tomorrow. Showing off Windows 7 Ultimate, which every host received a signature edition of. If you are looking to buy windows 7, Look around, there are alot of promotional deals going on. Any student should check out. www.win741.com, you can get a copy for $30


    I have had it for a little over a week now. It runs great, I have the 64 bit version installed on my laptop. I did load vixen and it seemed to work, but i have not ran it threw the hoops.

    I had the beta version on a 32bit machine, and it ran a sequence, and other things just fine.
    So i see no problems with Vixen playing with Windows 7.

    You can use Win7 but it's nolonger supported by Microsoft, so there will no more updates or bug fixes.

    And you can still upgrade to Windows 10 for FREE if you have a valid Win 7 product key.

    To upgrade though:

    According to Microsoft, the 32-bit (or x86) version of Windows 10 requires a total 16GB of free space, while the 64-bit version requires 20GB.
