Just upgraded to Win7.

Beersmith works fine, EXCEPT for the "Preview Brewsheet" function.

When I click on to view report, I just get a blank page.

Hi,
  You might want to check your Explorer settings.  BeerSmith uses Windows explorer to display information and if there is a problem with the settings in windows explorer it will not display correctly.  Also you need to check to make sure you have permission to write to the C:\Program Files\BeerSmith\templates directory as this is the temporary area used for generating reports.

  I've found that those running as limited users can have this type of problem with Windows 7 and Vista (the permissions issue).  One simple way around this is to install BeerSmith to a directory under your main users "Documents" directory and run it from there.

  I'm also running Windows 7 released version today now and it is working correctly on my copy.

Brad:  Setting the executable to "run as administrator" did the job. 

Many thanks!
