Default Windows 7 Info Poll

I was thinking maybe we could grab some information about our experiences with Windows 7 and the 9150 so that hopefully NG can get this straightened out. There seem to be a lot of different experiences out there and it would be useful to get them all into one thread. Here is the information I think would be valueable to have.

Here is my data. If anyone can think of other info that wuold be helpful, add it.


What version of W7 are you running (include bit and build if you know it)
Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit, build 7600.


Was this an upgrade or clean install?
Clean Install


Do you see the EVA(s) on the nework?
(Make sure you have file sharing enabled on the EVA).
Yes


Does the EVA see your W7 shares?
No (not until after DEW Config Wizard ran)


State if you installed DEW and what version you installed?
Yes - 1.8.0035


Did DEW install ok for you?
Yes


Did DEW see your EVAs?
Yes

Was DEW able to configure your EVA?
Yes


How does your PC connect to your EVA?
Netgear GS108 switch

Other Comments
On my laptop, I installed W7 Ultimate Release Candidate 32bit and I was able to see my shares just fine, but the EVA could not see any actual files.

Thanks. I'm surprised by how many people have complained of trouble with Windows 7 but don't seem to want to help.

I have just upgraded my PC and install Win 7 64 bit RC. DEW sees the eva but cannot configure it. EVA can see the Win 7 shares but is not able to access files for streaming even with Win 7 firewall totally disabled....... V Frustrating!

Great! Now let's just hope the developers are reading this and taking notes.

This drives me crazy because it sees the folders, but the scan doesn't pick up the video files, on photos. This new PC forced me to also by a ReadyNAS NV+ (which I have been meaning to do) so I won't need to share from my PC anymore, but it would be nice to know when it is possible again.
