Windows 7 School Applications
I'm Soon going through our software rack and getting out all the old software the school still uses and see what runs on windows 7 and what doesn’t, This way I can let the departments know before we upgrade.
Can we all make a list here of the odd little programs which work and don’t work for all to see !!

The old versions of numbershark and wordshark don't run. You need the latest release.

Install Med-V, then no probs. Although compatibility mode gives you the same, with that most should work.

Hi all - sadly, this is the case. The old DOS original Numbershark and Wordshark (inc 2L) are 10-20 years old and don't manage Win7. Wordshark3 and 4, Numbershark 3 and 4 work on most 32 bit Win7 machines. If you have a 64 bit machine you need our release 4.06 or later. Microsoft PC Operating systems

I'm going for the same thing here!
Units of Sounds v4 will not work, being 16bit on 64 bit architecture. you'll need to upgrade to v5.
Again Word Shark and Number Shark will only work if it's version 4.06.
I'm having a tough time getting Test Base 32 / Exam Wizard 32 to work on win7 x64... currently using MS ACT 5.6 to get it to compat but I get in a loop.... "Use 32-bit version if running the 64-bit" and "Use 64-bit version if running the 32-bit". and it goes around and around :L any pointers?

That will probably be why a couple of programs won't work Many Thanks!

If you're doing that bare in mind that all the exampro/examwizard/testbast stuff keeps it's licensing information in the same file.

Good luck, when I done my testing I had 2 machines side by side, one I was testing the software and the other one was building the Image. One lesson learnt after having to start the base image again because an application killed the installation.

I found that. I keep a copy of a full exampro32.ini file in MyDocs, and manually copy the contents of that back into the recently-installed one. Not pretty, but it works.
