The eagerly awaited and most anticipated operating system since windows Vista arrive on the 22nd of October 2009, I have already ordered my copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and will be getting my copy on the 22nd October. The main question I have as being a registered user of my INR has it been tested on Windows 7 because I will be changing over to Windows 7 when it comes out. The great thing about Windows Vista and with Windows 7 it’s backwards compatible, but it would mean you would have to put a shadow copy for Windows Vista or Windows XP. I just looked at the structure of the software, and it writes everything to Program Files (x86) which basically means it runs as a 32-bit software, therefore it might run with Windows 7 because Windows 7 is the same backwards compatible… but with the added bonus of virtual XP? Which basically means you can run a virtual Windows XP within Windows 7 which I have seen and used and its most impressive.

As an Anticoagulant patient and need to use this to monitor and track my weekly results I need this program, otherwise I will have to dual boot Windows Vista and Windows 7 just to use MyINR which will be a little bit of a pain.

Another question, With my data being backed up when I uninstall and reinstall I can download the backups back to my INR, I haven’t looked into this as of yet but would imaging that would be the case.

Thank you,
I hope I haven’t blown your brain with my question.

    Hi KUDOSS,

    While we own installations of Vista for testing purposes, both myself and Kellie use Windows XP for our day-to-day work. From what I’ve seen so far, Windows 7 does look nice, and I am planning to upgrade my day to day work machine to it soon after the release.


    The main question I have as being a registered user of my INR has it been tested on Windows 7 because I will be changing over to Windows 7 when it comes out.

    I have tested all of our software with two of the Windows 7 Beta/RC versions, and did not find any major problems. I have also spoken to a couple of users who have used our programs on the Windows 7 Beta. No one reported any major problems although one user reported a problem where My Blood Pressure was not shutting down properly. I have not been able to replicate this problem, but it is not a critical bug.

    I have not yet tested with the RTM release. I should get a copy a few weeks before the general release date to test with.

    Yes this is an interesting new feature of Windows 7. I have used VMs in the past to test software on old versions of Windows, but it is interesting to see that it is now being delivered with the OS itself.

    As a so-called early adopter, you are asking for “challenges” Smiley If you want everything to go as smoothly as possible, it can be worth waiting at least for a couple of month’s worth of patches, or a service pack. However IMO, you are more likely to have problems with a piece of hardware than a piece of software.

    Another question, With my data being backed up when I uninstall and reinstall I can download the backups back to my INR, I haven’t looked into this as of yet but would imaging that would be the case.

    Just to be safe, make sure you have a backup of the “My INR” subfolder of your documents folder. If you copy the “My INR” subfolder from your old computer to the new computer’s documents folder, when you install My INR, it will pick up your users and readings.

    If you do have any problems, e-mail me, and I will get on to it straight away.

    Hope this helps!
    Steve
