Compatibility with 64-Bit Windows 7 (and Magic Jack)?
Before I download and install the new version of Zone Alarm, I have two questions:
1. Are there any known compatibility issues with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium?
2. Are there any known conflicts with the Magic Jack internet-based phone service?
Re: Compatibility with 64-Bit Windows 7 (and Magic Jack)?
I'll try to answer your questions best I can.
1. ZoneAlarm Free has been fully compatible with Win 7 64bit for some time now. Thats not a new feature in version 9.2. We have tens of thousands of users with Free ZA and Win 7 64bit running with no issues at all.
2. We haven't tested this device before nor can I remember anyone contacting the forums with a problem with the magic jack and ZA.
Something to keep in mind. People generally don't post a message on the forum unless they are having problem or are unhappy. The number of posts monthly and yearly are a fraction of 1% of our total user base running ZA. So while it may not appear that way looking at all the posts on the forum in reality a high number of people are happy and have no issues with ZA.
We are not a perfect program (nor is any other software program) there are bound to be issues with certain systems but there are no know wide spread issues with every Win 7 64bit installation of ZA.
