Have been getting a few crashes with Alcohol 120% on Windows 7. Microsoft site says Alcohol is compatible with Windows 7.

Anyone else running Alcohol 120 on Windows 7 and if so are you having any issues?

Note both Alcohol and Windows 7 are legal paid up versions.

And that's why Windows 7 repetitively crashes on your computer eh? :thumbs::D

Get the latest version of it and it *apparently* works. I've only got an old Free Alcohol 52% when they had a promo giving it away...

That, or try the latest Daemon Tools Lite which works :)

Nope Windows 7 doesn't crash, Alcohol does. Windows 7 is great so far and if necessary I'll run Alcohol in compatibility mode as I have with Chessmaster 10. Looks like Alcohol need an updated version, hasn't been one for a while.

It is the latest version, in fact I have a lifetime upgrade.

Actually seems to work most of the time, but may need a bit of tweaking I guess.

Why bother. Use NOCDs.

I like PC's idea, or Daemon Tools Lite.

I do away with CD's / DVD's altogether, they get lost in the end anyways, so I just keep them on the HDD ;)

Unfortunately you cannot install from NoCDs :p

Daemon Tools doesn't work on Windows 7, so I use Virtual CloneDrive (http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html).

I was using MagicDisc (from MagicISO) but it had some bugs when mounting different images when there was already one mounted.

Virtual CloneDrive is OK but doesn't support as many things as Alcohol does I think

Interestingly enough, Alcohol Soft say for their latest version "NEW Supports Windows 7 Beta versions"

Doesn't say anything about Windows 7 Retail though...

You install, you no-cd, you zip it and store it on the external drive and then throw the CD away.

I use PowerISO. Free and seems to work well on 7.

I am running Daemon Tools successfully on Windows 7 - maybe give it a try? They pretty much have all the functionality of Alcohol.

The newest Daemon Tools lite (http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/downloads) works fine on my Win7 64bit install. Just make sure when you install it you deselect all the various toolbar & Favourites options :D
