    Hi all! I am attempting to build a software compatibility list for Windows 7 Beta 1 (32 bit).

    Please post all the software that you have tried, with the full version number - and if it worked / required workaround / did not work (reason or symptom)...

    Here is mine for now:

    FFDShow rev.2301 (2008-11-05) - Worked
    ImgBurn 2.4.2.0 - Worked
    MagicISO 5.4 (Build 0256) - Worked
    Googletalk 1.0.0.104 - Worked
    Microsoft Office 2007 SP1 - Worked
    WinAMP 5.541 - Worked
    Nero 8.3.2.1 - Worked
    Windows Live Messenger 8.5.1302.1018 - Worked
    Yahoo Messenger 8.0.0.716 - Worked
    WinRAR 3.61 - Worked
    Adobe Reader 9.0.0 - Worked
    Java 6 Update 10 - Worked
    uTorrent 1.8.1 - Worked
    Picasa 3 (Build 57.53.0) - Required Workaround
    Brings up the "Picasa is ready to scan for Pictures..." window everytime I open it (as a user or as an administrator - same result). Irrespective of the option I select (Complete Scan / Only Scan My Documents..), it gives the File Association window. It does not scan at all... When I manually added a folder to Watch, it did scan and give me the photos in it.
    Google Chrome 1.0.154.36 - Worked (Was surprised about this one, what with the tweaking required for Build 6801!!)

    I want other MDL-ers advice on Antivirus - I tried McAfee 8.5i in Build 6801, and had to throw it out... And I kinda hate the "Home Versions" :(

    And interestingly, none of the software i have listed above "found" an update, though I know some are old and have updated versions. Picasa 3 said it was up to date when I manually Checked for updated! Yahoo did not bother throwing up the usually update window either. Weird??!

    Some not mentioned so far:

    COD 5 W@W installed and ran great.

    3DMark Vantage no probs

    3DMark06 couldn't complete testing. Kept dropping to desktop due to D3D errors.

    Logitech Setpoint 4.70 no probs.

    Eset Smart Security 4.0.68 Beta no problems.

    Outpost Firewall 2009 - BSOD - unable to install.

    Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 Drivers (latest 2008 beta) working.

    Note: the Daniel_K modded Vista Soundblaster drivers for Audigy based sound cards are far superior than anything else out there. Fully functional and no volume problems. Sounds as good as XP's sound.
