    Just heard back from Capita.

    They will be supporting W7 within 6 months from official release. So, not too bad really, we can certainly live with that.

    my admin system is still on xpsp2, not sure about IE8 ?
    Thats the message from 'our' tech support anyway
    We've run IE8 on a couple of machines since release and no issues at all detected with SIMS.

    Did it work within XP Mode?

    I tried, but I couldn't get it to install, I suspect I need the administrator password, but I'm not sure what it is...

    It wouldn't run

    I had no free time to mess around with it, if I need to use the system console, which is rarely, I'll just borrow someone elses PC It's not needed often and the main part of SIMS runs perfectly fine under W7.

    I'm beginning to think this XP mode is going to be a huge backwards step. If it costs a company far less money to tweak their software so it works in XP Mode rather than make it fully compatible with Windows 7, then that it was they will do.

    We have no problems here with XP SP3 running Office 2007 and IE8. What do you mean by 'still doesn't work correctly'?

    the definition

    i was told with sp3, and off 2007, spreadsheets and the like would not open up correctly from within sims. also i was told the same occurs with off 2003, and sp3. 'Our' tech support has reported issues, and i only asked them a couple of weeks ago, and the reply was 'not yet'.
    So i'll wait
