I like how it installs them in Win7. Start installation. Then mid-installation it just restarts the machine w/ no warning. Not a shutdown-restart. Just boom, off!

Didn't do that for me and I'm running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate RTM.

I had 9.7 installed already, and just installed these on-top. Worked like usual, no restart required.

However my desktop background was gone until I restarted.

I"m thinking 9.5 works better than 9.7 or 9.8
