Windows 7 Opinions
« on: March 27, 2010, 07:52:26 PM »
I have an interesting issue.  I have some software that I wrote on a Vista machine using VS2008 in VB.NET.  The software works fine on Vista machines but won't even start on a XP machine.  It just says an error was encountered and must close.  Seeing as how XP is now 2 generations past, I was thinking of going to a W7 machine.  What's the general consensus there?  IS W7 working OK with Mach?  I did read some issues with 64 bit, so I would stick with 32 bit.  Thanks.

I am running Win7 on my laptop to do development work and just switched my mill over too.
I am running on what many would consider a substandard computer for win 7 (512mb ram) but it is working well.
I am running an external motion controller so I can't speak to the PPort use.
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.
