I know it's probably not yet a supported platform, but nice to work with and OpenEdge behaves pretty well...
Except ... I tried to install a Progress WebClient application (10.2A01) on a Windows 7 RC machine. The installation of the WebClient (from DLC\webinstall) was no problem. But when I pointed the browser to the .prowcapp file, I got prompted if I want to install the WebClient application. After choosing yes, I got the less or everything saying message:
Unable to launch WebClient.
Part of the registry keys have been created, but the App did not install (did not even try to download something).
I uninstalled the WebClient and installed it again (all using the default paths) and all did not help.
I suspect that the issue is due to the fact, that 32bit applications by default will install to "C:\Program Files (x86)", so the WebClient went to C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress Software\WebClient and the WebClientApps folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\WebClientApps.
I changed the installation folders (during the next reinstallation) to
and everything went well. Looks like some part of the application bootstrap has an issue with the 32bit default path names on a 64bit Windows.
The application runs fine now - will report the issue to tech support, but I thought I'd let you know of the workaround first.
