EPD works with Windows 7 beta!

I finally got around to installing with Windows7 beta last night, and was pleased to see the latest EPD installs. I then started up a customer application, and to my surprise, everything worked!

I only run 4 apps on Windows, IE (for Netflix), Python, Eclipse, and Google Chrome. Its great news that EPD seems to be okay, while Chrome is completely broken.

Thanks for the feedback on the previous post, I’m going to try Console on Win7 next time I boot into it.

    I’m wondering what in chrome is broken on Win7 for you. I’ve not had any problems. I’m not a chrome dev or anything by the way, just wanting to avoid pitfalls.

    Greg, does Netflix streaming work with Firefox? If so, I’m done with IE. Now only if it worked with Firefox on Linux…

    Chrome, launched using the installed shortcut will not display any documents. Altering the shortcut makes it work somewhat, but not perfectly. Google is aware of the issue.

    I used the EPD windows installer from code.enthought.com website. Everything seems to work fine, EXCEPT : I have lightning problems in Mayavi. Everything is “black”, so no light is present…

    The EPD distribution has not worked on my Windows 7 (RTM Version) installation until I downloaded the msvcp71.dll and copied it to Windows/System32.

    Yes, Chrome is still very broken under Win7 64-bit. Something to do with recall from history it seems, typical event log

    Faulting application name: chrome.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4c5353e5
    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16559, time stamp: 0x4ba9b29c
    Exception code: 0xc0000374
    Fault offset: 0x000cdc9b
    Faulting process id: 0x1160
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cb3ed3bd21cdf1
    Faulting application path: C:\Users\paul\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ntdll.dll

    I see plenty of people have this grief. Pity, makes Chrome useless, otherwise I like it.
