I can second that!

I just did a setup of Win 7 Ultimate solely to test UIview and APRSpoint 
install issues, after the numerous complaints on the respective mailing 
lists.     Both went in with no problems, as long you are aware of the 
"run as administrator" elevated privilege issues.  I think it took me 
all of 7 minutes to get MapPoint/APRSpoint up and running and about 15 
minutes to get UIview, PMap Server 7 and Precision Mapping 8.0 going.

[I use ISO images of CD roms stored in my 160GB iPod Classic, mounted as 
virtual CD/DVD-ROM drives with the freeware FileDISK ISO mounting 
utility, to do these installs.  It's far faster than running from 
physical CDs and DVDs.]

One aggravation-saving work-around is to install these applications 
OUTSIDE of the usual C:\Program Files\xxxx hierarchy.  Vista/Win 7 are 
very protective (can you say paranoid) about things that go into 
/Program Files.

Instead, override the default install path for each program and install 
into folders directly off the root; i.e. something like  C:\UIview32  ,  
C:\PrecisionMapping  , and C:\APRSpoint  respectively.
