The things that probably won't work with Win7 and Win8 are hardware drivers that were not updated from XP to Win7/8. So old printers, scanners, etc will probably not work with Win7/8. Mine didn't so I bought a new printer and new scanner when I upgraded to Win7.

My HP laserjet 1000 seems to have no 64 bit drivers. I spent a bit of time researching and found a lead on some other drivers that were supposed to make it go, but alas, no luck.

The scanner is different though. Here's what I found. It's a Microtek scanner. They have 64-bit drivers. But the scanner doesn't show up as a TWAIN device. But if I launch the 32 bit Photoshop (CS installs both 32 and 64 bit versions) then it works just like before.

I really don't understand what's going on there, but I just need to remember to launch the 32 bit PS when I want to scan.
