Upgrading from Vista Home Premium to Win 7

Wednesday, October 21, 2009 by Donbam | Discussion: Windows Vista

I'm currently running Vista Home Premium 32 bit and an getting ready to upgrade to Win 7 Premium 32 bit.

When I ran the upgrade advisor, it indicates that I should uninstall Windowblinds 6 before the upgrade.

It also then goes on to indicate that I won't be able to install it after the upgrade to Windows 7.

Does Windowblinds 6 work on Windows 7, or would I need to install the Windowblinds 7 beta?

Any help would be appreciated.

WindowBlinds 6 does not support Windows 7 which is why you get that message.

WindowBlinds 7 supports 32 and 64 bit Windows 7, Windows Vista and 32 bit Windows XP.

Thanks guys, appreciate the quick response and support. Will be getting the family pack upgrade, and will upgrade at least the desktop today.

I've been using WB7 on the RC of Win7 and it works fine!

The new texture effect is AWESOME!
