Hi nealeh & giro & fellow SN users,
Well four months on from my last post and I'm now running a stable retail version of Win7 64bit
on a reasonably beefy PC, and what I'd like to know is...
Has anyone got the latest itteration of SN (6.3.3) running flawlessly in Win7 64bit please?
I'd like to get V6.x.x. Enthusiast (retail) so would be grateful for unambiguous confirmation that this latest SN now works fully and as intended
on Win7-64 machines.
There's a 'walk-through' on the Yahoo! Starry Night forums of a successful install on a Win7-64 laptop by sequentially updating to 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 etc., and also manually editing the resulting DEP Exception Errors after checking out the Event ID numbers etc. phew!, but even so, these rather technical posts seem conclude by saying that these 'fixes' worked in Vista so should
work in Win7 too. Great!
Latest graphics drivers and OpenGL support are a crucial element too. I'll be using a Radeon5770 with drivers supporting latest OpenGL 3.2 which I'm hoping will be ok.
Fingers crossed and thanks in advance for any pointers, advice or cautions you can offer.
