Hi all, I thought I´d start a thread with the problems that anyone has had since installing Win7 (x64). So far from what I have seen is the new O/S is FAST!! My programs/games install a hell of a lot quicker than in Vista. The start up/shut down times are also very fast!!
So now to my problems..., a virtual CD/DVD emulator is a big problem to install. I was always running DaemonTools Pro Advanced within Vista, trying it out in Win7 just sent me in a neverending loop!! In order to install DT the driver will be installed then one is asked to restart to complete installation, which I did. After restarting the program it continued up until a certain point, then asking me to reboot again (and again, and again ;) ), with no luck :( The adapter was not found. Slysoft´s Virtual Clonedrive (which I found posted here, never heard of it before) worked only after a hard reset (H/R)!!
So far I have tried to install a few games, most of the newer titles will install (very fast) but when I actually try and play these they tend to hang up, with a H/R being the only option (Task Manager won´t work!!) Maybe it has something to do with a SLI setup, I´m not sure!!
Firefox and IE8 have hung up a couple of times whilst trying to stream live using Sopcast/TUV Player.
Card reader´s would not show up in "My computer", although they worked and I had problems sending "stuff" to my USB flash drive, although it worked after a few attempts!!
Otherwise, Win7 is actually great, I am so impressed how quick it can install everything, I never thought the installation would be quicker due to the O/S rather than the hardware!!
Anyone else have any problems? Then please post here and let everyone know!! Matt
