Ive got the idea of installing RC1 64bit windows 7.
Does anyone have any good or bad experience of eve with windows 7 RC1 32bit or 64bit?

Ive got a serial as registered.

Anyone got a "working" link where i can get either the 32bit or 64bit please.

I used eve on most of the win7 beta's including RC1 and now on the retail version and I've never had a problem. With the release of windows 7 the beta is over so Microsoft have removed download links for the RC1 (someone correct me if im wrong) and the clock is ticking in a few months the RC1 will start to shutdown every few hours forcing people to purchase windows 7 or go back to using what ever OS they was. You can try torrent site's but im not sure if downloading it now from a torrent site is legal or not?

EVE Worked on every version of Win7 assuming you got your graphic drivers to work, from which most did.

The RC stops working in April 2010 in which it shutdowns every 2 hours and then a month later stops working completely. Microsoft apparently did not care for the torrents of the RC since they appeared to wanted to get as many people using it as possible.

The RTM is basically a retail version but I believe illegal to download and eventually Microsoft may crackdown on it.

But, If you are a student and have a registered College, University. You can get Win7 Home Premium or Win7 Professional for /$30. Unlike Vista all you need in Home premium unless you want XP mode then Professional is all you need. There is no need to get Ultimate even with the RAm limits which I cannot say anyone will reach in the foresably future. This is a very good deal and you really should take advantage of it. There has been little issues with Win7 even in Beta and they have just polished it since then.

Err, plus the fact that you have no idea if a downloaded version has been spiked with malware. In other words, don't bother!

Been using the retail 64 bit version for 2 months now, and Eve runs like a dream...(The advantage of having a Technet Subscription, I got it 2 months early) Twisted EvilTwisted Evil

I usually run 2 windowed clients with full graphics turned up...

Also been running EVE on win7 for a couple months. The 64 bit version really seems to be helping with multi-client operation.

It's very rare that something that didn't run on Vista won't run on Seven.
Seven is just an enhanced version of Vista.


To be honest, I have yet to have anything not run on Vista that came from XP.
The biggest issue was drivers, but that isn't Microsoft's fault.
Some companies didn't make a push to update drivers for every piece of hardware they made.

Win 7 x64 here. Running smoothly with most stuff. Some older things don't work, but that's more due to 64 bit than W7.

I'm a linux advocate and generally despise anything MS, but I'm forced to say this...Win7 is actually pretty decent. It's a MASSIVE resource hog, but still less than Vista. I have had maybe...1-2 crashes tops. It really is a great gaming platform.

For serious work? No thanks. I'll stick to my linux boxes for that.

There is a history of people saying such things, they where all wrong! Wink

Not running Win 7 yet but it's still looks way more promising than the Vista flop. (IMHO)
I will run Win 7 when it's had it's first few months of real use. Not gonna lose my hair over some stupid bug that doesn't exist in XP.

just formatted and installed Win7 Home Premium on Friday. Ran Win7 RC Build from Jan to last friday as my main PC OS. No issues with EVE.

The Retail version seems to run a lot smoother then the RC did. Must be a lot of tweaks under the hood.

why on earth would u waste money buying the 32bit version when its already obsolete by its own definition?

almost all new cpus are 64bit & most 32bit pc's are too old to run win 7 with any decent degree of performance and are better off staying with xp

most new pcs come with 4 or more gigabytes of ram as standard these days (again requireing 64bit os)

Except for boot time my XP is a lot faster than Win7 especially running 6 windowed Eves at 1900x1200.

Overall with the stuff I do XP is still faster.

Its a shame considering my Win7 machine has better specs than the XP. Hopefully SP1 will fix it.
