Applications Tested with Windows 7

Applications Tested with Windows 7 - the list grows but some older programs are no longer usable...

Programs Tested with Windows 7 the 32 bit version.

You have an program or game that you use daily and you want to know if it will run when you start using Windows Seven.

I have tested some programs that I use on a daily basis and some games I like to play to relax. My testing leads me to believe any program or game that was written in the last four years (post Vista) will not have any problems with Windows 7.

Now those that have special drivers for such things as printers or fax machines may not run. My HP 3-in-One is of this variety. I did check with HP but no drivers available at this time (Vista drivers would load but not work), maybe by the time Windows 7 is a retail product. That is one of the reasons I say you should do a Dual Boot if you can.

  • Fallout 4

As time goes on this list will grow as I use more programs with Windows 7.

These three programs will not run on Windows 7 -

  • Roxio 7 (because the drivers are over five years old).
  • WinAmp 3.5 (because the drivers are over six years old!)
  • Far Stone Virtual Drive ver 9.

Upgrading to newer versions of these programs will allow you to use them with Windows 7, I am still using XP as my primary OS so have not spent the money for upgraded versions of these programs as of yet.

Update 08/29/14 - I still haven't moved completely to Windows 7, I can't find any program or registry change that will allow me to have my desktop set the way I want it, I don't want to search through a menu for the programs and short cuts I use on a daily basis.

Update 02/08/20 Seems the more that changes the more it stays the same. I have completed my move to Windows 7, however my domain is still Server 2003 (thinking about going to Server 2008 R2, this web site is on Server 2008 R2, learning as I go...) As I said above any program written after Vista will work on Windows 7, however I do have a couple of those that will not run on Windows 10 (still using VMWare with XP to do this web page), will do a little list for Windows 10 in the near future.
