    Default Compatibility with Windows 7 Beta 1

    I don't know if there's a thread already, apologies if there is, I searched the forum.
    I just want to know if FM09 will work in Windows 7 beta build 7000. Just to save me wasting my time installing it and finding out it doesn't work.
    Thanks.

    I have no idea, no harm in trying it then telling everyone else.

    Same kernel .. Same fs .. Still 32 bit ..

    Windows 7 is just Vista with a KDE 2 theme.

    Asked this in another thread - but no-one appeared to have a blind clue what I was talking about: has anyone managed to synchronise save games with Windows Live Mesh (www.mesh.com), so that you can keep a saved game in synch on a Vista and Windows 7 PC? (Or any two PCs for that matter)

    From Microsoft it is. It's a cleaner, faster installation of Vista. I like it so far.

    worked in win 7 beta but a few glitches once you are playing. Nothing show stopping but strange one is that numbers are appearing under players names where it would normally show the postion they play in (this is on the main bar near the top). I am guessing it is showing the database ID for each player.

    ^ Have you tried unticking "Show unique IDs" in the preferences?

    Working fine here.

    I have an odd bug occurring in Windows 7. When you go to start a match, the game just hangs after the submit team screen. It only happens intermittently. Anyone else seeing this?
