Hi Andrew,

I wanted to know if BWM is compatible with windows7 or not yet ?

I don't mean 64bit , I know you are working on it with coming betas (after 2.9.16)

I just want to run BWM on 32 bit windows7

what you think ??

I also have the same question about software compatibility.
I'm thinking about Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bits, but would like to have some feedback from people using BWM on that platform.
Perhaps Andrew can confirm compatibility?

Hi guys,

Both the latest release 2.9.10 and all betas work on Windows 7 x86 and x64. Just make sure you allow the installer to install the drivers (when windows brings up a warning twice during the installation).

I installed trial version of BWM 2.9.10 on windows 7 (64 bit). Windows had an error when installing SoftPerfect Reaserch Net Driver and NetService Driver (both at version I then restarted the laptop and there was a blue screen of death warning about ndis.sys. Fortunately system restore came in handy to uninstall BWM. Has anyone experienced this?
btw: works perfect on my xp system

Are there any USB network devices (such a USB ADSL modem) plugged into this machine?
