Windows 7 & MA3?

I have just installed W7 as a clean installation and I am wondering how it is working with W7.

I don't have W7 yet myself, but the majority of users report that MA3 works fine with it.

I just bought this new HP computer for my mom for her birthday(Dec. 20th)/Christmas/in lieu of rent for the past year present. It has Windows 7 and I can't wait to try out MA3 on it! It should be here in a couple days.

What is the difference between the Demo and the paid version

Without a Key Code, the fish choices are limited to the top row.

Smile Windows 7

Just completed a clean install from XP to Windows 7 on my desktop, 32 bit, and Marine Aquarium 3 is working good. Fish movemment could be a bit smoother, but there is a slight performance problem. I couldn't be happier if things stayed just the way they are! When my laptop comes down the road, I'll be just as happy to buy MA3 a second time.

What do you mean by "slight performance problem"? How many frames-per-second are you getting?

When people say working great, no problems in Windows 7, are you talking about the Beta or the installer version from Prolific? Is the installer version creating the required folders in their proper locations for Windows 7 because I've heard the folders are different from XP.

Thanks.

The current SereneScreen (Prolific) installer seems to be creating the required folders in their proper locations for Windows 7, and appears to be doing the correct things with the Registry. That impression is based on 2 installations of MA3 on "format and install" Windows 7 installations (one 32-bit and one 64-bit).

I have two machines that were upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, that seem to still work correctly with MA3. Of course, that does not guarantee that they will be correctly upgraded with the next Installer version of MA3.

I have no experience with the Nova installer.

Thank you. It looks as though the time is right to upgrade from XP to Windows 7.

Footnote: I have upgraded two PCs "directly" from XP to Windows 7, using LapLink's "PC Mover Upgrade Assistant". MA3 was working fine before the upgrade, and works fine after the upgrade. Of course, I have no idea whether the files are in the right place, or the Registry entries are correct - I'll probably find out when the next installer version of MA3 comes out.

Footnote2: If you're considering that, consider buying the download version from Amazon. It's cheaper than getting it from LapLink.

Footnote3: YMMV - I didn't have problems with it, but others have.
