Will DiggerTM work with Windows 7?

The various editions of Windows 7 come in 32-bit and 64-bit variants. DiggerTM itself should work without any problems with 32-bit Windows 7, however it will not work with 64-bit. If you are unsure which type of Windows 7 you have, click on Start-Control Panel-System and Security-System, and look for the System Type.

There is one known issue when running DiggerTM under 32-bit Windows 7. The help system may not work. On Microsoft’s web site at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917607 you will find an update that should fix this. After you have downloaded the update, use the “Fix it” button on the page to prevent a “Macros are disabled” error message.

If you want to use DiggerTM with Windows 7 64-bit, we suggest you download and install Windows XP Mode. Windows XP Mode makes use of Microsoft Virtual PC, and it integrates with Windows 7, so you can launch DiggerTM from the Windows 7 Start menu. Windows XP Mode and Microsoft Virtual PC are both free products from Microsoft. Windows XP Mode is only available for Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate. You can download Windows XP Mode and Microsoft Virtual PC from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx.
