Did you expect your copy of Windows 7 64bit host all your favorite software as they used to perform seamless with your Windows XP? Well the answer would be pretty disappointing and a definite NO!
Find below a list of application which were installed “properly” and later made Windows 7 64bit crash down with the infamous Bluescreen
- PointDev Ideal Administrator (32bit)
- Sun VirtualBox
Ironically both software install “successfully” and you start experiencing the errors only when you go for a proper shut down next time. Windows shutdown process initializes and takes a loooooooooooong time (most probably trying to shutdown the running services) then comes up with a Bluescreen, dumping up information and asking you to check the latest installed software and hardware components.
I am not sure whether these software would run properly without causing Windows 7 64bit to meet it’s pathetic Bluescreen of death periodically, if a compatibility mode is chosen….
Give us a SERVICE PACK Microsoft! I am terribly missing my Windows XP Professional as maximum of working hours I am trying to uninstall, reboot to bring Windows 7 64bit back to a working state.
