The Compressonator and Win7 64 bit RC1

Hi everybody, I have a question which I haven't found an answer for by searching so far.


I tried to install The Compressonator on Win7 64 bit RC1 but it doesn't work. When I start the installation I get the usual first window of the installation program I know from installing it in WinXP. But when I click "Next" I always get a window with a "Fatal Error" saying "Installation ended prematurely because of an error".


That's it, I can only click on "OK" and this closes the window.


Is this a bug or a feature? I mean is the installation meant to fail on Win7 because The Compressonator wouldn't run on it anyway?


And is it planned to update The Compressonator to work on Win7 (apart from using a virtual WinXP which is quite uncomfortable to set up)?



Thanks in advance for any help!
