A Few Details:

Microsoft's newest operating system, Windows® 7 (W7), has taken some of the changes seen in Windows® Vista and greatly improved upon them. Security is improved beyond any Windows® Operating System offered in the past but not at the cost of performance as was the case with Vista. Performance has been greatly improved over Vista and boot times for W7 rival those of XP. Microsoft has released a number of different versions of Windows 7. You will find a chart below that describes some of the differences between the versions. FlightPrep software will run on any version of Windows® 7 and will also work correctly on both the 64 and 32bit versions.
