I know what MG's policy is re. official Windows 7 support - not until Q1 or Q2 2010. However I have a new system and am starting off with Windows 7 as I really only want to get it set up one time. I tried installing PADS 9.02 with no luck (ran into start menu creation errors). I did manage to get past the USB key detection and license file checking portion of the install but could not get past the start menu creation errors. If anyone has made better progress than this I would love to hear about it!
