    Can I work with Gantt Chart in Windows 7

    Gantt Chart is a software that I am using currently in my system with Windows XP operating system. This software can be used as a project plan system. I need to know that can I work with Gantt Chart in Windows 7, since I will be upgrading to Windows 7 soon. If this is not possible, then what are the solutions that I will be able to use to make it work in Windows 7. Please reply with suitable solutions as soon as possible.

    I guess that you will have to run the hardware and software evaluation wizard in your system to check if you can work with Gantt Chart in Windows 7. If this tool lists this particular software as incompatible, then there is no need to worry. There are many alternatives and complements that are available in the market. Search for them on the internet and your problem will be solved.

    Hello there, I do not think that you will be able to work with Gantt Chart in Windows 7, since there are incompatibility issues with many applications and programs for the operating system. There are no problems with Windows XP, so why do an upgradation. Also, for an upgradation to Windows 7 from Windows XP, a clean install is needed. So, it is better to quit installation to Windows 7.

    Following are the system requirements of Gantt Chart:
    1. Operating system: Windows XP
    2. RAM: 32 MB or more
    3. Hard Disk: 20 MB free

    Since, the operating systems that are shown in the system requirements above does not show that it supports Windows 7 or not, I do not think that you can work with Gantt Chart in Windows 7.

    Helo Efigenio,

    Have you checked compatibility?
    Just an FYI for you.

    It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
    Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/com...s/default.aspx
    There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".

    There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx

    In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!

    As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.

    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.

    Thanks again,
