I had no problem installing and running it on my Windows 7 32 bit box.
After downloading the executable right click and go to properties and tick Unblock, then go to the compatibility tab and select run as XP SP2. The install as Administrator. You could also after unblocking it right click and right click and select "troubleshoot compatibility" and let the wizard do it for you. Windows 7 is far more forgiving than what the casual user give it credit.

Apr 11, 2010 Version: 4.72 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 5/10

If you are using Vista or Windows 7, you cannot run it. You have to run it on a Virtual XP world running in Wmware or VirtualBox. Would be nice to know how to get it running directly in Windows 7. I would give this 10 across the board if it worked in Windows 7.

Apr 11, 2010 Version: 4.72 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

I use this program strictly for its MakeMenu function. All of the free authoring programs that I have tried force reencoding of video files. This program simply inserts a menu into the VIDEO_TS folder without reencoding your files. This is a great tool to use on compilations created with DVDFab Platinum Merge Mode or DVDShrink Re-author Mode. As of this writing, I have not found a Tutorial to point others to. The Help files included with the program are only a starting point. The Author is helpful for specific issues here: (Make sure the display properties setting on your PC shows 32 bit color prior to creating and adding the menu.)

Nov 7, 2007 Version: 4.6 (Oct.11, 2007) OS: WinXP Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

first of all, why even rate a tool 1's across the board that you haven't even used, because you cannot download it?

anyway, for people who are clueless when it comes to DVD editing, this may take some time to learn, but once you get the hang of it, its fairly easy. it also comes with help files with pictures to guide you.

paired with menushrink, i like to re-add the original menus to re-authored DVD movies, and this does just that. i've tried other methods of doing this, but all the other methods cause stuttering problems when used with DVD-rebuilder.

props to FallenAngel for making DVD menu editing fairly easy in his freeware tool, and his dedication to helping people with his tool who are in need.

Jul 7, 2006 Version: 2.652 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

This is a very useful tool to add DVD-Text. The latest version now includes a simple document file explaining some of its menu making features.
