It's really sad that Impulse cannot proceed to the installation : "This program is not compatible with your current operating system.".
This is done intentionally. DeskScapes is one of those apps that simply does not work yet on Windows 7. You'll constantly get that uxsms error and there is nothing that can be done to fix it with the current release.
Technically speaking, I'm not an expert but from what I now, aero is pretty much the same as in Vista.
They are similar, but not the same, but this really doesn't have much to do with DeskScapes, as it runs on XP too w/out Aero.
I think the installer is checking for the OS version and stopping right there because it simply doesn't know the Windows 7 version.
Something like "System.Environment.OSVersion.Version.xxx == 6.yyy " ? If it's that simple, it's really too bad not to do something about it in several months. Basically you're just pissing off customers.
See above. It's checked intentionally so people don't end up with a non-working install.
Another possibility is that developers can't make Deskscapes working on Windows 7 ? Really ? Just told us if so, at least we'll know you're working on it, aren't you ?
Look for updates to several of the Object Desktop apps in the coming months as the developers add Windows 7 support. Although I cannot say for sure at this time, it is more than likely that there will be a version of DeskScapes for Windows 7.
