Re: Post which version of Windows 7 you have installed - 01-12-2009, 05:59 PM
Sorry, I won't be able to until I get home tonight (and being that I'm on the US West Coast, that's at least 8 hours away).
But here's what I did...
I followed jej.514s thread, except that I had to keep the following:
Crash and Dump Support
And then I also kept:
Run a legacy CPL elevated
One of those got me past a hurdle, but I didn't take the time to find out which one.
Lastly, you can not do an unattended/automated setup in Win 7 (not sure why, but the guys at MSFN will figure it out long before me). Win7 gave certificate errors on each of the drivers, but installed them anyway, then updates them. I have had to go back and get the Synaptics drivers for Vista on my own (especially if you want the touchpad scroll feature).
I have only run into one problem with this set up. After I was given a Product Key, I have not been able to add it - it gives me a missing DLL error. I will work on fixing that tonight.
