CLIK and 64 bit Compatibility

Has anything been done to make CLIK compatible with Windows 7?

The simple answer is NO.
CLIK in its current form is not compatible with 64 bit versions of Windows XP, Vista and 7.
There are some methods to overcome this with compatibility mode and also virtual machines, however these are typically not methods for the average computer user and hence have not been tested.
For the moment, CLIK will continue in its current form and existing problems in accessing it are unlikely to be resolved.

DVA has put considerable effort into enabling CLIK to be viewed from the DVA internet site and  providing detailed information about doing so. As this version of CLIK uses Citrix technology it is able to be viewed on most typical computing systems.

A project has been initiated to investigate options for converting CLIK to web format, however it is too early to say how that will go, nor when an outcome can be expected.

Updating to 64 bit Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 will mean a lack of compatibility with the latest CLIK disc being circulated.
