Easy Realty Flyers & Unzip Photo Archives Updated (Windows 7 Now Supported)
Monday, February 19th, 2018 @7:37AM, Releases
I'm happy to announce that both of the above mentioned products have been updated so they now support Windows 7. It wasn't that difficult (Easy Realty Flyers has a few requirements).
Why the change?
I was reading a couple of different articles regarding Windows Operating System Usage and I discovered that Windows 7 is still quite popular. And by that I mean popular enough that I needed to support it.
Here's the reference articles in case you are wondering too:
- netmarketshare.com - Operating System Share by Version
- Desktop Windows Version Market Share Worldwide
I've also made a changes to the Overwrite/Skip feature in Unzip Photo Archives. I was trying to account for daylight savings time and that code would cause UPA to constantly overwrite the extracted image (date-time was off by an hour).
System requirement to run Easy Realty Flyers on Windows 7
- Windows 7 SP1 (KB976932)
- Platform Update (KB2670838)
- Internet Explorer 11
Microsoft has released several roll-up packages for Windows 7 which contain hot-fixes and security patches and what-not. I setup a computer running plain old Windows 7 Home and proceeded to use windows update (via the control panel) for several hours. Some of the updates were quite large. In some way or another I had forgotten how much I used to dread the constant update | install | reboot process. Windows 10 update seems more efficient to me. You can download the SP1 and Platform Update by using the KB numbers. Create a support ticket if you need help.
As always, registered users can download and install the latest version for free!
I should note that I'm working on a fix for Perspective so it can run on Windows 7 and I've already been testing fotoXplorer on Windows 7 and it works perfectly!
