Recently I was making a pass through my old emails and I noticed that several folks have been asking me about PowerPivot and Windows 7. As you know – and I hope that everyone knows – PowerPivot is *NOT* supported on Windows 7. We have very specific prerequisite requirements – and running on a Windows Server OS is one of our requirements. However, from time to time, customers ask about using Windows 7 (even if it is not supported). I went back in my old files and I found this very interesting posting from Stacia Misner who explained her experiences.
I don’t know how long Stacia ran with Windows 7; nor how much of PowerPivot and SharePoint worked (all or just some). In either case, I thought the general community might be interested in her experiences.
