We, at 3Dconnexion, are looking forward to the release of the next major revision of Microsoft's operating system, Windows 7.
We have been actively following the test cycle of Windows 7 and we can now share some information with our customers.
Before going any further, please understand the following:
- At this stage, 3Dconnexion does not provide technical support for Windows 7;
- The current 3Dconnexion software release does not officially support Windows 7;
- You should check the information made available by the editor of your 3D application to confirm it can be used on Windows 7.
If you are already testing Windows 7 and you have a current 3D mouse (SpaceNavigator, SpaceExplorer, SpacePilot), we would like to encourage you to install 3DxSoftware v. 3.7.18, released earlier today. The software is available for download here.
Please use this topic to share your experience. We're very interested in knowing about the tested 3D applications performance and, if possible, the details of the 3D mouse (model), application (version) and platform (x86, x64) you are using.
Looking ahead, we plan to have official Windows 7 support in release version 3.8. We aim to make the software available (in beta) in early October, in time for the general availability milestone of Windows 7 RTM on Oct 22.
