    Default What version of ZA will work on Windows 7

    I am trying the basic version to see how the outbound filtering rules work with a Windows 7/32bit install but it keeps erroring with:
    You need to upgrade to
    Microsoft Windows Service Pack 1 (SP1) in order to install ZoneAlarm.

    I guess it is seeing the OS as Vista and not Windows 7.

    The version is 80.298.000

    Thanks

    Only ZA Version 9.0.083.000 will install on Win7 32-bit..

    But the Current ZAFree (Basic) is Only 8.0.298.000

    Not sure where to post this, but this thread looked relevant (sorry if mis-filed):

    ZoneAlarm Internet Security 9.0.083.000 did install on Windows 7 (RTM), but did not work properly.
    iTunes stopped working (unable to sync or access Account info, etc.), and the Windows Sidebar/Gadgets would crash the PC.

    It looks like there is a new version 9.0.112.000, and the release notes indicate better iTunes compatibility, but Windows 7 is not specifically mentioned.

    Also, there is no mention of the Gadgets/Sidebar issue.

    Does anyone know if these have been addressed?

    Sorry, There is no Tech Support for Windows 7, until Win7 is Officially released Oct. 22, 2009..

    Here is all we know about the Paid versions of ZA that will install on Win7 ..

    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite version 9.0.112.000
    • Browser security fixes:
      • Fixed: Not possible to type in Internet Explorer (IE) 7 in Private browsing mode
      • Fixed: System stops responding after opening PDF file in IE 7 and 8 on XP when virtualization is on

    • Compatibility and Stability improvements:
      • Fixed: Blue screen crash after starting IE 7 (if ForceField is set to manual startup)
      • Fixed: Performance problems when using iTunes
      • Fixed: Screen freezes during ZoneAlarm installation or configuration in some cases

    • Other fixes:
      • Fixed: Adding a firewall rule to block a specific hostname blocked all traffic
    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite version 9.0.083.000

        • Can run and analyze download behavior in a virtual environment if necessary
      • Spy site detection
      • Signature and heuristic phishing detection
      • Website safety check and rating

    • New unified anti-virus and anti-spyware engine:

      • More advanced scan options- riskware, ADS, heuristic scanning, and more exception options
      • Additional on-access scan controls
      • On-access scanning now detects spyware

    • Program control features to stop advanced security bypass attacks:

    Hi!
    the best is to try the latest ZAX 9 beta (www.zonealarm.com/beta) and test if the issues are resolved. If not, report it to the betafeedback page. It will go directly to the ZA developers.

    Cheers,
