Apps working in XP but not Windows 7. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I have been sequencing a number of apps for Windows XP & Windows 7 successfully however two of these crash at 100% on the Windows 7 test client.

    These include OPAS & Patient Centre. The XP Client has .net 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 installed - the 7 has 3.5 installed as a feature plus I was able to install .net 1.1. Could this be an issue ? I know that some of the software was looking for 2.0 on the XP installation - but the 3.5 feature is supposed to be backward compatible.

    Anyone ever come across applications playing up on Windows 7?

  • Hi - Thanks again. I tried sequencing them on a Windows 7 client as well and they didn't work in XP compatibility mode properly either.

    Some other apps not designed for Windows 7 worked a treat - what do you think the success rate for older apps would be ?

  • Hello,

    If installing the application natively on a Windows 7 works, it should work to sequence.

    Since you have seem to have sequenced on Windows XP, it might be a good idea to try to resequence them on a Windows 7 client?

  • Hello,

    No idea, purely depends on the design and purpose of the application.

  • Thanks for the help. Think I'll give up on that app.
