I have to admit that I have been running my MPC Rennaisance on Windows XP! It is NOT designed to run on XP. In fact, when I installed it, it said it was not installed correctly, but it worked! So I just stuck with it. However it has slowly gotten worse and worse...weird crashes...etc. The expansion packs will not install. And the updates will not install either. This last week it has gotten so bad that after about 5-10 minutes XP just stops recognizing the MIDI controller...it just freezes. I can still operate the software with the mouse, but that's useless. The last beat I made, I probably restarted MPC software 50 times! :WTF:

So, I am going install Windows 7. Think I might build a sweet lil machine w a friend just for MPC. Long Overdue.

But, I'm pretty impressed it has managed to make it this long. It's gonna feel great to run 1.3 (or maybe 1.4? soon?) on Windows 7. Ive starved myself long enough! :lol:

You're not suppose to mix clorox with amonia either but there's always a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Congrats on going to Win 7. I am a Mac guy, but have used Win 7 and still do at work. IMHO 7 is the best Windows of all time. XP is second, but a well tuned Win 7 is nice.

Get ready to have some good times with your MPC and 7....
