Is Sage Accpac ERP ready for Windows 7?

Microsoft Windows 7 is here, but is Sage Accpac ERP ready for it?

Sage Accpac ERP version 5.6, 5.5 and 5.4 (current version and 2 prior versions) will be supported on Microsoft Windows 7 upon the general availability of Sage Accpac ERP version 5.6. Windows 7 support will be limited for certain configurations in the Extended Enterprise suite and some 3rd party software component that integrate with Sage Accpac ERP due to timing of product release and legacy issues.

Sage Accpac ERP v5.5 and 5.6 will be supported on Windows Server 2008 R2 (32-bit and 64-bit)

Crystal Runtime XI R2 (the embedded Crystal Report engine within Sage Accpac ERP) has been tested to be compatible with Windows 7 but will only have limited supported by Sage and SAP/Business Objects.

Crystal Reports 2008 will only be supported on Windows 7 with CR 2008 Service Pack 2 (available through CR 2008 update or from Sage Accpac Technical Center)

Pervasive SQL Database Engine will have support for Windows 7 with the full release of Pervasive SQL 10.3.

SageCRM v6.2e will have support for Windows 7 as a client workstation only. SageCRM v7 will have full support for Windows 7.

Sage Accpac ERP v5.6 is now supported in a VMWare ESX environment. Do take note that performance issues in a VMWare environment will not be addressed, only application-related issues that can be replicated in a physical environment will be addressed. Non-VMWare environments such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, however is not supported. SageCRM is not supported in any virtual environment.
