I guess I am a little bored waiting on my unlock codes. So I loaded BW7 on Windows 7 to see how it would work. I am running Windows 7 using sun's virtualbbox on XP as the host.

It installed and runs just fine. I did a minimal install but I assume that the modules will work. It displayed the Greek and Hebrew well. But it has trouble updating. It fails to update .exe files. Other than that, it ran surprisingly well on Win7 running in a virtual machine on XP.

Not bored, but curious...
Installed BW8 on Windows 7 x64 Beta.
Works fine now for a few days, updates like it should.
Wonderful!
i.e.: both W7 en BW8 :-)

Boredom and curiosity go hand in hand for me I am afraid. I am running win7 in a virtual window and that probably has something to do with the updater failing. When I have time I may see if I can get it to work. And I was using the 32bit, 64 will not run on my virtual window, umm, I don't think it will

i know that BW did something right. Maybe MS did something right for a change :D
