Default Windows 7 released today. Experiences with PT8?

I'm purchasing the $30 upgrade to W7Pro with the .edu email deal that's going on.

Obviously I can't install it until I know for sure that PT8 will work with it.

I was wanting to start this topic so that people could discuss their experiences with trying to get PT8 to work with W7. Post away!

Sounds like there might not be any need to wait for a PT8 update!

So you think it was more of a 32/64 issue with Kontakt than W7? I have 3.5, dont' really need to upgrade, don't have a 64 system. Still no beta drivers for my M audio device, fast track ultra.

Default Re: Windows 7 released today. Experiences with PT8?

I was using XP SP3 (x86) with two 1010LT cards under PT8. Installed Windows 7 x64 fresh and used the latest beta drivers from M-Audio. Both cards could be see and the Windows sound system worked.

However, PT continued to give me DAE 6006 errors on boot. I disabled one of the cards in the Device Manager and then PT loaded. I also swapped the disabled one to the other one and PT still loaded.

So, I guess there is either a driver problem or PT problem... Still mucking with it, but I don't think I can magic it to work on my own.

My experiences thus far.
