Rush 102.42a9 (and up) tested to run fine on Windows 7 64bit RC.

Rush and Perl both installed normally with no caveats.
Submitted and rendered network jobs with UNC paths to a linux/samba file server,
bouncing cpu bars in rushtop.

As always, be sure to run the install as the real Administrator.
The UAC (introduced in Vista) causes there to be a distinction between
running a DOS window as an administrative user vs. "running as Administator".
An easy way toopen a DOS window as Administrator:

	1) Start->All Programs->Accessories
	2) Right click on 'Command Prompt' and choose "Run as administrator".

This ensures the install script has sufficient privileges
to make changes to the system environment variables (eg. for
making changes to the PATH)

Some general comments about Windows 7 that are not Rush related:

    o 'edit' is gone, apparently. It was a nice DOS based text editor.

    o 'wordpad' is still not in the PATH, causing a 'command not found' in the DOS shell.

    o 'notepad' is still as dumb as a sack of hammers

    o Start -> Run, where have you gone?

    o To enable the real administrator user so that you can actually
      login as administrator from the login screen:

	1) Start->All Programs->Accessories, right click "Command Prompt"
           and choose "Run as administrator".

        2) In the DOS shell, run:
		net user administrator /active:yes

        3) Restart or log off
