Hey everyone, I am fairly new here, and didn't see anyone asking this particular question. Has anyone found any programs that aren't Win 7 compatible yet ? Because the only things I have found software-wise that are incompatible are device drivers or some older hardware.

I think Norton Internet Security 2009 might have issues, but the 2010 is an open beta at the moment an working fine.

Although those with 2009 subscriptions will get 2010 free, it won't currently accept those serials so stuck on a trial serial which I can keep renewing atm so no real downside.

Granted I don't pay attention a lot, but I did come across something interesting.

I went to Windows 7 x64 over the weekend. Opened up IE and went to install java from www.java.com - I got a warning message about how I need to install Java for x86 and x64 so both my browsers were compatible with Java. I don't recall seeing that message in the Beta versions or on Vista x64 for that matter. I don't know if that's an IE8 thing, a new thing or just something I never noticed before.

Hmm, I honestly can't say I have ever really run the 64bit version of Internet Explorer, but I have Java installed fine, or at least Java apps such as the OSNN chat room run fine.

With software so far, I couldn't run one of the latest versions of Deamon tools. (Maybe they came out with a newer one since a couple of months ago)

As for hardware, My HP Laserjet 1020 USB printer couldn't install properly. Win7 detects it, but could not find device drivers. Had to install some obscure HP windows driver in compatibility mode to get it to work.

As well, my Logitech MX Revolution mouse is acting quirky since Win7 install, with or without Setpoint drivers.

My MX Revolution has been working fine, what kind of quirks?
Well, my left click button double, triple and quadruple clicks instantly when I
just single click. At first I thought it was because the USB receiver was too far being behind the tower, so I moved it to the USB on my keyboard, but it still does this.

Hmm, have you had the mouse for a while?
I have had for about three years, been using it on my last linux for a couple of years, then before on a XP machine, no issues until I hooked it up to my three different WIN7 setups (7077beta, 7100rc, 7232rc all 64bit)

Also forgot to mention, lots of times, I left single click on a link or something, then I have to try a couple of times as it didn't register.

I had mine a similar length of time and can definately relate, I had left click or right click issues constantly. I ordered a new one of the same model (although it turned out to be a 2007 mode rather than my original 2006 model) and I was actually suprised to find how different it was to click the button, a louder and more established click and needless to say no more issues. So perhaps, if you have a retail store that displays them etc. give it a click and see if it feels more pronounced!

I think whats happening is, the button inside is getting gummed up or worn down, I wouldn't recommend it but I found a guide for another mouse and applying some WD40:

Not specifically a Windows 7 issues though :)

Thanks EP,

Now that you mention it, it does sound like the actual mouse itself.

I am not going to bother trying to fix this one then, just order up a new one.

Thanks again,
