Old software compatability issue.

I have used a nice free piece of software called DirectoryOpus6.1. for about 9 years on xp machines.

It's a replacement utility for windows explorer, and came free with a computer magazine in 2002.

Has anybody tried it on W7?

Thanks. Aitch.

I was specifically curious as to wether the old 6.1 version of DirectoryOpus was ok for a windows 7 set-up.

Sorry, I don't know about that. Why not try it and see?

I found almost all old progams will run on win 7 use either the Compatabley mode or run as admin
