I just got a new laptop with W7 on it.  I have not put the LPI software on it, yet.  Has anyone had any problems with this setup or doees it work fine.  I remember the whole Vista/LPI fiasco and am hoping that those issues are solved.

......crickets....the silence is deafening. I still have my old laptop running XP with the LPI, but would like to move to my new laptop. Any help? Ideas?

At work, I have a program that I am certain will not run on W7 and we are all having to get new computers. Microsoft has told us that they will not be supporting XP any more after a date coming up in the not too distant future. I have been talking to one of the transition people in our IT department. He says there is a way to force W7 to run an XP type program. If he is successful in geting my program to run on my new machine, I will inquire about what he did. I do have my doubts after all the trouble folks have had getting astronomy programs to make the transition.

I am sure this is not much help, but maybe there is a glimmer of hope.
