Default Windows 7 and Beersmith

I've sent an email off to technical support regarding this, but figured I'd post here as well.

I installed the Windows 7 RC the other day on my new computer. I went to install Beersmith and it gives me an error and crashes before anything has installed. Has anyone else tried to install it on Windows 7 and if so have you had any luck? I understand they might not support Windows 7 yet, and that's cool, but it'd be nice to have it.

I'm assuming it does not support Windows 7 yet. I'm sure its still pretty buggy too.

I have it running on Windows 7 64-bit right now. Are you running the 32 or 64 bit version of windows?

LOL. I think this went over the head of many.

I'm running 64-bit. I heard back from Brad at Tech Support and he mentioned that I try the zipped version of the installer and see if that works. I'm at work right now, but when I get home tonight I'll give it a try.

How do you like 7?

I expect a new drive from Newegg tomorrow. Plan on putting it in my Dell laptop and loading up 7.

Drivers out there for most stuff?
