I've run it on XP, Vista and now W7 64bit without a problem so there aren't any compatibility issues that I know of.
You might try to be sure that you run it as administrator as W7 has security built in as option out rather then option in.

While I don't suggest it as a steady "fix" because you do leave yourself open to problems it may help in the short run.

Be sure you have all Windows updates including the latest .NET, I believe it's 3.5.
