Just installed 64-bit Windows 7 Beta in dual-boot configuration ( with Windows XP Pro SP 3 ) and it looks really good.

Installation ( new ) was fast; startups and shutdowns are quick ( seem that way at least ); GUI is pretty, intelligent and snappy ( especially when optimized ).

Any issues with Screenshot Captor ( SC ) running on 64-bit Vista ( or 64-bit Windows 7 )?

Thanks again for SC.

Later ... Charles

PS Noticed that the  insert weblink feature on this forum does not work with Explorer 8 on Windows 7? Spell-check pop-up does work ... Internet Explorer 8 issues I am sure.

Ok ... so far so good.

Noticed that Screenshot Captor (and other capture tools) can not get transparent Aero border.

The pause and shoot nature of Snipping Tool does capture the transparent Aero border.

I haven't had any issues running it under Win7 x64 -- except for the aforementioned loss of Aero.  Any chance there'll be an option to show/hide Aero in the future?
