Windows 7 Compatibility


Akula

Recommended Posts

OK, got a new computer with windows 7. Will I need to do anything to HCE other than re-install it on the new box, or are there any compatibility problems with HCE and windows 7. My experience with 64 bit systems is nil, so keep that in mind.

 

If you are curious...

 

Intel i7 Core 930

12 GB DDR 1600 RAM

GeForce GTS 250 Video

1 TB HD

 

I bought a full out gaming rig. It's working great so far. I dont' forsee having to upgrade for a while, and even if I do, the RAM is expandable up to 24 GB.

 

I LOATHED Windows Vista...Windows 7 I'm finding myself content enough with however, pleasant surprise TBH.

Totally irrelevant, but am I jealous or what!! My good computer is a celeron laptop (15" screen) and recently upgraded to 500 Mb ram (original DDR and I had to get it second hand and what ever could be found). My hard drive is 40 gig (you have nearly that much ram if needed!!) but I use 8 an gig usb for data storage and archive stuff onto (external) DVD fairly frequently.

Have fun.

Mine is Win 7 Premium Home Edition. I might have to keep an older computer going to use the scenario editor then, which shouldn't be a problem, I already have a second set up that I use for older stuff as it is.

 

I just keep an XP VM around to run Harpoon and a couple other things on. My main machine is a quad-core, 6 GB, nice vid card, but I don't need to run Windows natively for anything, so I don't. :D

I have no idea how to even set up an XP virtual machine though. Someone will have to explain it step by step for me to even accomplish that.

Well, I have VMWare to do it with, so that's like an $80 piece of software. I don't have it just for Harpoon, of course. :D I also run Win7 in a VM. (If you can't tell, I'm an IT geek, so this is what I call fun, along with Harpoon. :D )
