SDM on Vista/Windows 7

Hey guys, is anyone running SDM on Vista? How about Windows 7? I'm attempting to run it on 7 (I assume it should be no different than Vista) and I get it to install but it never really launches the program. Launches a window with the code visible (very strange) but the program doesnt work. Works fine with XP, but i'd love to use it with my Vista/7 laptop I use daily. Anybody running this type of setup?

    Maybe try reinstalling/updating Java. I'm running ADSM on Win7 x64 without any problems.

    FYI, SDM is not supported on Windows 7.

    Cisco SDM can be run on a PC running any of the following operating systems:

    •Microsoft Windows Vista (Business Edition)

    •Microsoft Windows XP Professional

    •Microsoft Windows 2003 Server (Standard Edition)

    •Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 4

    I think that cisco will not release any new updates for SDM. I might suggest to consider using CCP (Cisco Configuration Professional). That might help and you can use CCP with newer versions of java. The latest version of Java supported by SDM is Java 6 update 3
