Works just fine on our windows 7 pro just this minute installed it.
Have you downloaded the one from Rays site: Teachers Report Assistant - FREE time saving utility for teachers
Thye still use this version in one of my schools but I can't get it to run on a Win7 Home Premium machine
Just in case someone somewhere has managed to do this .... - please let me know O
I just checked - it's the 64 bit version of win 7 premium, so that's prob the diff
Can't use an alternative as report assist 2006 is the thing they all use in this school
Thanks for checking it though
can you not go to report assist 2009?
Or pay for the upgrade to win7 premium - in place upgrade then use xp mode?
Ah - spend money - what a novel concept
Have you tried installing RA2006 to a different folder outside of the protected Program Files location? We use RA2009 here with no issues on Windows 7 Pro but run the app as Administrator under compatibility settings.
We got it to work by having it installed on a network drive. Then just running it as an administrator once on the workstation.

Another way would be to use the free Windows XP emulator that Microsoft provide for Win7. There is a mode that provides seamless emulation called 'Windows XP mode':
Download Windows XP Mode
With XP mode you don't have to have an XP licence, Microsoft provide one for free, you might have to be running a premium or Pro version of 7 though?
If you go down the emulator route, I myself prefer VirtualBox to the Microsoft emulator, but I don't think it has a seamless mode and you also need a Windows XP licence as one isn't provided with that.
Hope this helps?
