I just recently started to learn Java and well... If anything I'd think it should work on Windows 7 (unless they blocked it so people use VB instead.. doubts.)

Windows 7 is based on Windows NT (same as XP and Vista?).

If it works on Vista and XP, I wouldn't doubt if it works on 7 as well.

We have Java errors using XP. Our software vendor tells us the application won't work with certain versions of Java. So the issue may not be Windows 7.
