I know it's still kinda early to even be thinking about it, but I was wondering if RMVX is compatible with Windows 7. The reason I ask is that I will in all likelihood convert my failing vista system over to W7 as soon as it comes out, or sooner if I decide to try out the RC. But I don't really want to do an upgrade unless I know there are no compatibility issues with RMVX. I kinda need that program to work... I know there shouldn't be, I mean the compatibility thing is one of the things they're pushing with W7, but still, I'd like to know beforehand.

As a second question that has to deal with the upgrading, can I reinstall RMVX onto my PC, with backed-up program files, and not have to by a second license? I've been wondering this for a while, especially since there have been a few times recently that I was seriously considering just reformatting the computer to solve my issues. If worst comes to worst, buying a new license isn't the worst thing, I have all the game files safe, so that's good.

Don't bother with Windows 7 for now as the beta's are just about done and it expires in 2 months. But, that said, VX should work with 7 without issue as apps compatible with Vista are compatible with 7.

Actually, I am really enjoying my beta copy of Windows 7 (running in a VM though). I haven't thrown rpg maker onto it yet though.

It works just fine for me in 7. I couldn't tell any differences in how it ran.

Seconded. This is a great OS.

And it shouldn't have issues with Vista, and as some have pointed, there aren't.

VX was built for Vista, as XP was built for... wait for it... XP. I'm sure VX will run on the Win7 OS.

Also, you will never need to buy a license. Just find the file named PSIKey_2.dll and copy it to the new VX directory. Make sure you overwrite the current PSIKey_2.dll. It basically tells the program whether it is in trial or full version. Copy that .dll and it should be fine.
