I was using FrameMaker 7.2 SGML on Windows 7 machines last year on a
contract. Several were questionable as to how old the machines were and no
doubt had Windows 7 loaded without regards to how well they worked but due
to corporate upgrade policies.

I had no problems running FrameMaker 7.2 SGML. There were times the PCs
would balk and slow, but overall, it ran fine.

I haven't use any version of RoboHelp on Windows 7 yet.

Hope that helps.

Hello everyone,

I am currently using FrameMaker 7.2 and RoboHelp X5. Some questions:

* Will these work on a new computer that has Windows 7?

I assume RoboHelp X5 would NOT work. It needs Office 2003, and the new
computer would have Office 2010.

I assume FrameMaker 7.2 MIGHT work? My quick research on Google showed that
people had problems making it work, but there may be a workaround for these
problems? Any comments on this?

* I assume the best solution is to upgrade to Adobe Technical Communication
Suite 3.5, which should run fine on the new PC?

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Keith
