Has anyone tested if this program works with windows 7 yet? If it does I think that the windows 7 multi-touch based OS would just eat up multiple light pens. I am planning to get a beta copy of windows 7 and will update once I do so.

Though Windows 7 does look cool, you have to be an official beta test from microsoft to get windows 7.  If you do get a version of windows 7 please do not discuss or answer the question of where you got it.  Discussion/Use of illegal software is prohibited on wiimoteproject.com.  I know there are many different sites that allow Discussion of it, but I would suggest you not do it here.

Thanks for your understanding on this issue.

sure thing but I was not implying illegal use of the cracked beta7 I was asking if any of the official beta testers took a crack at it.

Im using Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro (oldish one) and im using Wiimote Connect 0.5 i can connect, and use GlovePie, WiimotePresenter and im making a Program using Wiimote Lib which all works fine except i cant get WiimoteWhiteboard working says No avaliable Wiimote found. Please check bluetooth connection. which is weird cause it uses WiimoteLib and WiimoteLib is working with other applications? but other then that everything else works fine.

lerossio,

Can we have some details as to what you did?

What is your set up?
Are you using the generic bluetooth drivers and or stack?
What software are you using to interpret the wiimote signals in windows 7?

Much greater detail please.

Hi,

tryed the new software of John Hardy and Christopher Bull, mentioned here:

http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-whiteboard/wiimote-with-windows-7-and-tuio-multi-touch-support/

and it works great with Windows 7! That's how it should be!!!!!

Download the Microsoft Multitouch Surface Pack (Should be free now I guess) and have fun with the Collage, Lagoon etc.....

Bye
