Im one of the weird ones that things it it aint broke dont fix it, so I choose Megatune over Tunerstudio.

I use megatune with windows 7 professional on my eee Pc. Works great. I did have some strange issues originally with the default folder that it put logs & .msq's in... the files wouldnt show up in the folder when you look for them. They were in a compatibility folder or something

I think this was because originally i had xp on it, some compatibility BS idk?

I recently installed Windows 7 on my little Acer Aspire One notebook that I use strictly for tuning. I installed Tuner Studio then, and I'm very happy with it.

No problems so far with windows 7 and tunerstudio except the diagnostics tab that is greyed out (registered) but I am not sure that is a win 7 bug.

Like 240 I had a problem with MT writing .msgs and datalogs to the project folder on Win7.

Simply start a folder on your desktop and work from there...no more problems. I've been using it the whole time I've been MSing...almost two years now.

Get on the MS forums and there is a TS section there. Post your problem and Phil Tobin the developer of TS will help you out.

ms3efi.com has a link to the forums.

I too use windows 7 in a tablet pc and it works great....I use megatune and it makes for a nice gauge display on a 10" tablet....just got to finish my solid mount that folds out of the glovebox and it will be great!

The diagnostics tab works fine on win7. Check your TS version.

MegaTunix should work for you. I've never tried it, but it's supposed to be good software.

Tuner Studio should work fine in Linux also. I might try it out this weekend to see.

ended up not getting the eee pc and found a toshiba nb505 10 incher. same specs as the asus eee, but has much bigger keys for my ape like mits. anyway loaded tuner studio on both old and new. learned the ins and outs on the old before using the new one. everything runs flawlessly with the windows 7 machine except I keep getting a lambda2 error and it tells me to use lambda2 instead lol. it doesn't seem to have any effect on anything or the way it functions so I can't say that I'm all too worried about it. tuned for two hours this evening with slightly rich afr targets (just in case) and the battery still had about 3/4 life left. much better than than the half hour I get out of my old machine.
