I'm looking for any info about your experiences/troubleshooting/limits using iSeries Access on W7 RC as I'm going to download the RTM version. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Programatically speaking, Vista and 7 are very similar. I know for sure that even our V5R3 worked on Vista for client access. I would imagine it would also work, though, keep in mind it will not be supported.

Hope this helps!

Windows 7 will have Windows XP mode which is a Windows XP OS running inside a VM. Your CPU has to support the correct set of instructions for this to install, but that could allow you to run what you need to as it would simply be running in a Windows XP OS at that point. That should get you through until newer software is released which runs under Windows 7 directly.

    Thank you Schmidtw. I know the two OSs share the same kernel and I'm aware that W7 still has no official support. I wait for any other info from Windows 7 early adopters...anyway thank you again !

    I know there's no official support from IBM. If Windows 7 was an IBM supported OS I would not have asked here.....anyway thank you voodoovw,

    I just thought the link may come in handy to others looking at this question. Do you have an V6R1 copy of Access? I'd assume it would be the most succesful.
