Just got a brand new machine with Windows 7 (finally moving up from XP). I see you recommended not to use FX with Vista...Assume the same is true for Win 7, correct?

Ahto, from your responses on this forum it looks like FX is a dead product. If so, what product do you recommend your customers use in its place?

Thanks.

Yes, it works up to XP (not on Vista/7/8).

Most likely there will be new version in the future but meantime it is discontinued. I have no recommomendations, sorry.

Sorry to hear that. Here's a vote from a customer who was happy with the product the way it was (under XP):

I have no need for any new features in a Font Explorer version 2. Would be happy just to have a version 1.2.3 with no improvements other than Windows 7 support. Is it that hard to make the existing version work under Windows 7? Hate to see a nice product just sitting there dead in the water.

Thanks.

I just downloaded this and installed it on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and it appears to work just fine.

The only thing I notice is that it doesn't recognize OTF fonts as being installed, but it recognizes TTF fonts being installed just fine.

Yes you can use it for viewing on Windows 7 but don't use to install/manage fonts. It also does not properly detect which fonts are installed permanently etc.

I have plan to release simple new version in the future.

I use it on Windows 7 and it works great for viewing fonts. I don't use it to install fonts but there is no need to.

What I was wondering is if there is any way to tag fonts so that then I can sort them into categories for different purposes?

There is no tagging but you can group fonts in physical folders but that aspect does not work properly on 7.

Thank you for this thread!
Ahto, here's another customer who would very much like a version of FX that would work fully with Windows 7 :)
I'm happy to know that I can use some part of it though.
Please do let us know when a new version is available!
Thank you1
