Weather Fax and Windows 7

Just received my new laptop with windows 7 after the three year old Lenovo with Windows XP has gone to god.
Went to download seatty but seems it wont work with windows 7!
Any suggestions?

I have not used the application you mention--but I have windows 7 and it will run earlier software if you check "compatibility" and adjust the settings for your older program.

FWIW

We have an Asus netbook with W-7 and it runs JCComm32 just fine
