  • Hi,

    if you have .net framework installed on Windows 7, it could work. If not, let's try to configure properties of the application - Compatibility mode Windows XP and/or Run as administrator (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows - also applicable for Windows 7). If nothing helps, then you can download XP Mode for Windows (virtual machine, free for Professional/Enterprise/Ultimate Windows 7 editions).

    Good luck.
