Hi All,

A client is about to buy a new system and needs to run Sibelius 
Access.  We were hesitating over whether to go for a Windows 7 
system, so I asked Tim about compatibility.   He said that Dan and he 
were just exploring this very question but hadn't yet found what 
would happen, so I promised to try it and report back to the list.

When you install Sib 5 in Windows 7, you get a warning that there are 
known compatibility issues.   If you go ahead and run Sibelius 
anyway, it fails dismally to function.  Nothing works, menus don't 
come up, and it crashes out with a memory address error message.

So I think that's probably a no then.

It looks as though the client will have to go for XP, but what are 
the prospects for scripts for Sibelius 6 under Windows 7?

Forgive me if this has been covered recently as I was bounced off the 
list for a while.
