Yeah windows 7 has been a pain lately since java has rolled out several updates. The C++Redistr 2005 is one work around for another router SA500 (SSL vpn trouble). Currently with these production units engineering is working on a fix within the next firmware release. Since the RVL200 is EOL/EOS don't think this problem will get fixed. Most customer don't have this problem until they run all the updates for windows 7 after that SSL broken. Its time to upgrade to a production unit so that windows7 will be fully supported.
