Windows 7 and Salesforce

First, I must say I am surprised that I like Windows 7 (vs. xp).  It starts and shuts down much faster, and I like how it manages stacking of open windows so my system tray isn’t the cluttered mess it used to be.

My main gripe – not all the apps I use seem to have caught up with 7.   Salesforece Mail merge is one such app I would really like to work, and doesn’t. I only found one other post on this so thought I would post as well. The response to my Salesforce support ticket is below…

“Thank you for contacting Salesforce Support. I am following up with you in regards to case xxxxx.

At this time Windows 7 is not fully supported to use with Connect for Outlook, therefore we cannot guarantee full functionality of the Connect for Outlook plugin. Unfortunately, there is not a time frame when Windows 7 will be fully supported with Connect for Outlook. Also, please keep in mind the below system requirements for Connect for Outlook.

* Microsoft Outlook XP (2002), 2003, or 2007

* Microsoft Windows® 2000, XP, or Vista™ (32-bit only; 64-bit is not supported)

* Microsoft Exchange Server

* Microsoft Word XP (2002), 2003, or 2007”
