      Well the question the OP asks is "will it work on Windows 7". My answer to that question is "windows 7 itself does not seem to preclude you from using the UDK, but several people have problems, and I am one of them".

      "It works for a lot of people" does not answer wether it will work for this particular individual, but Windows 7 is not going to make it not work in and of itself. Having a current-generation graphics card with up-to-date drivers might, as seems to be the case for me; the content browser is unusable for me due to a redraw problem causing everything to be hidden under layer upon layer of tooltips, thus making it impossible for me to see what I might have selected or what is there to select FROM. I see at least one person in this thread and several in others mentioning that disabling windows update so as to not recieve updates is a necessity for THEM, lest the UDK stops functioning. These are, to my mind, signs of a dire need of an update, because no matter how many people say "install antiquated graphics drivers" it still doesn't become a viable option for me to disable a host of other things I need to use for something I just really WANT to be able to use.


        you could use the old generic browser, there is a command line switch to swap it in for the current content browser, i think. otoh, i always keep all my drivers up to date every month, and have no problems with either old ATI hardware, or modern NVidia hardware .. so unless it's modern ATI hardware, i dont' think it's directly the video drivers fault. and judging from the number of people using modern ATI hardware, I doubt that too.. but I could be wrong.

          Thats because a 64 bit version of UDK doesn't exist yet. Though we're all hoping for it.


            Well Wray im doing the exact thing you are, today I just installed Window 7 on to my MacBook Pro. BTW if you want to run window and OS X side/side you also need an additional program called parallels. but unfortunately I was not able to run UDK. I dont know what the deal with that is, UDK does not like me

              UDK on 13" Macbook Pro?

              Is anyone getting UDK to run in Win 7 on the 13" Macbook Pro?

              I got everything to work on the 15" Macbook Pro under XP, but UDK won't launch. I know others have got this to work with XP, but I need to get this for Win 7.
