If you are already running Windows7 (or Windows Server 2008 R2 as a workstation) like me? Do get the latest updates for your PC’s for your Applications to run without any hassles. From a KB article : “The Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Application Compatibility Update is a software update that improves the compatibility experience in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. Microsoft regularly releases Windows 7 and of Windows Server 2008 R2 application compatibility updates.”
I always use Alcohol 52%, its a virtual drive emulator where I can mount my ISO’s and CUE image disks so that I do not have to burn them again on a physical disk. I had problems installing Alcohol after rebuilding my demo laptop and apparently I did not did my best practice of installation – after manufacturers drivers, get and install the latest updates! I found my update here: Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Application Compatibility Update
Downloaded the installer from here:
After downloading your updates manually, just run it and wait for it to finish
here is my screenshot running Alcohol free edition on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.
Moral of the lesson 😀 – Always update your Windows 7 :D. CHEERS!
