    Lightbulb List of software which work with Windows 7 Beta.

    With very rare exceptions, Windows 7 appears to be quite compatible with software designed for Windows Vista.

    Here is a list of software which work with Windows 7 Beta.

    Grisoft AVG-Free
    ESET NOD32
    Windows Live Essentials and Windows Live Sync.
    Microsoft Office 2007
    Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and 7
    Slysoft applications.
    Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006
    Firefox 3.
    SnagIt 8 and 9
    Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Web Developer Express 2008 with SP1
    Microsoft Zune 3.1
    Twhirl and Adobe AIR
    Adobe Reader 9
    WinRAR 3.80
    Handbrake 0.9.3
    Virtual PC 2007 with SP1 and VMWare 6.x
    Roboform
    Apple AirPort
    CDBurnerXP (ISO burning, largely unnecessary now in Windows 7),
    Google Chrome
    Apple Safari
    FileZilla
    Apple MobileMe
    Adobe Flash
    Apple iTunes
    Apple QuickTime
    Microsoft PC Advisor
    uTorrent
    Wakoopa ,
    Windows Home Server Connector

    This list is NOT complete, only indicative and is culled out from a post at WinSuperSite.

    If you know of any you have installed on Windows 7 Beta, please do add here. If there are some you have found to be 'not compatible', that would be interesting to know too.



    Not Compatible :
    Skype 3 and 4
    Norton AV 09 needs to be installed in Vista compatibility mode (Thanks for this info alsiladka)

    My inputs to the list -

    * Skype 4's latest beta is compatible and works fine for me! He might have tried Skype 3 and received the compatibility warning.

    Compatible softwares -
    * Orbit Downloader
    * Extensions for Windows (Though the Enhanced Task Manager needs to be started in Vista compatibility mode)
    * Google Talk & Yahoo Messenger
    * Opera 10
    * Java Runtime Environment 6 U11
    * Logitech SetPoint 4.70
    * Microsoft Silverlight 2
    * Paint.Net 3.36
    * Realtek Audio Drivers
    * The KMPlayer (The best video player of all!)
    * Digsby

    Applications which work in Vista Compatibility mode (Had to start the installer in compatibility mode to install them) -
    * Nokia PC Suite
    * Nokia Software Updater

    Yeah, although i did not expect it to work either since TuneUp installs some Explorer hooks. Am surprise how your Tune Up is working though, i will have to give it another shot i guess.

    Can you try instaling TU 09 once?

    TU 09 installs if you ignore those two errors, but it won't start. Strange that 07 works !
