    Cool Make Windows 7 Calculator work in Vista too!


    Good news is that the new Windows 7 Calculator works on Windows Vista too, if it’s been ported or migrated to Windows Vista.

    Windows Vista users who want to use the more advanced Calculator program from Windows 7 can download the following RAR archive which consists of calc.exe with its mui language file extracted from Windows 7 pre-beta build 6801.




    To Run Windows 7 Calculator :

    1. Simply unpack the content to another folder
    2. Run the calc.exe to use the Windows 7 Calculator in Windows Vista.

    To replace existing default Calculator program in Windows Vista :

    1. Copy calc.exe to \Windows\System32\, and calc.exe.mui (in en-US folder) to \Windows\System32\en-US\ folder

    Overwriting existing file (you may want to backup the old Calculator binaries first in case of error running Windows 7 version). Voila, now the new Windows 7 Calculator has been installed on Windows Vista.

    Download: Windows-7-Calculator.rar from WinVistaClub.

    Default In Windows XP?

    Does anyone know - or can anyone point me to someone who can help me - if there is a way (and if so, how) to get this working on Windows XP as well? It would be most appreciated.
