It’s Tuesday, and the march to install software in my Windows 7 install goes on. Good news for today, everything was favorable although I did get slowed down downloading the latest VMWare. Speaking of which, we’ll let it start the list.
VMWare Workstation 6.5 – Installed with no problems, everything seems to be working fine. It recognized my USB devices, network, etc.
Camtasia Studio 5 – Installed and works no problems.
SnatIt SnagIt 9 – Had a hic-cup installing the first time, just seemed to install. In retrospect I may not have given it long enough. I rebooted, and to be safe started the install in Admin mode, it installed and works just fine.
Bayden SlickRun – works great, no problems.
TrueCrypt 6.1 – Works fine, mounted the drive OK.
Live Mesh – Works fine, I loaded it on my Windows 7 machine and was able to login to the website on another computer and remote control my Windows 7 box with no problems.
Corporate VPC – My companies VPC software installed and ran just fine with Windows 7. I can’t say much else about the software since it’s something proprietary but my co-workers will be pleased to know it works.
And that’s it for today. All in all I have been very pleased with my Windows 7 experience. I have been taking it slow, installing my software one at a time, testing, and verifying basic functionality. Tuesday night I have a Bug.Net meeting on my calendar, so it may be Thursday before I get a chance to do more software installs.
One follow up from yesterday, I was told Virtual Clone Drive will work under Windows 7, but causes the Windows 7 shutdown to hang. Haven’t tried it yet, if anyone knows a free ISO reader that works under Windows 7 please leave a comment.
