[Admin note: This thread has been locked as much of the information is out of date. Opus 9.5 has been released with Windows 7 support. See the FAQs for the latest information on Windows 7 etc.]
I know this post might seem a bit premature, considering the fact that Windows 7 is currently in Beta 1 phase at the moment. But I’m still curious to know if anyone else has tried running Opus on it?
It installed fine, it imported my settings fine. But there were two major issues that I saw. First, 7 uses explorer everywhere, so Replace Explorer definitely doesn’t work.
But the bigger issue is that Opus seemed to corrupt my file system whenever I used it to manipulate files. At least I think it was Opus. After installing it for the first time my disk became unwrwitable, but after a restart, chkdsk fixed some file indexes and all was well. I used Opus again and the same thing happened. At this point I didn’t know what the problem was, so I reinstalled Windows 7 and began adding my apps back in one at a time. When I added Opus, the problems happened again. I uninstalled it, and now i’ve been using Windows 7 for several days without issue.
I don’t suppose there’s need to report this to the developers, I’m sure they are hard at work on the issue (or will be soon!). I just thought this would be an appropriate place to ask around and see if I am alone in my experiments with Windows 7.
Thanks for reading!
