Does the ADR plug-in not work in Windows 7?
This is feed seem like exactly what is happening to me. Can anybody help? Thanks in advance.
It's not really clear to me what we should do...
Do I need both the 2005 and 2008 packages? Do I need to uninstall the old versions? Should I use the 64-bit versions?
It would be great if you could give step-by-step instructions on how to install Design Review on Windows 7 64-bit.
Both the ADR and TrueView installs were straightforward, connect the dots installs. All indications are that both apps are running cleanly with no problems.
Any help is appreciated.
Just an FYI for you.
It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibility.)
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.

I had the same problem.
I un-installed the existing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables (both x64 and x86).
Then from the Microsoft website
I installed their version (this is an earlier version than the one I un-installed.
Then I did the Design review install again and it worked OK.
