EFNEP CRS national software (I wanted to share some information about NEERS5 and its compatibility with Windows 7 and Office 2010.
Initially I told you that NEERS5 was not compatible with Windows 7. Since that time several institutions have found a work-around. NEERS5 will work on a Windows 7 computer if your IT department installs it using a virtual XP environment. This is not something I am able to provide tech support for, but if you have a strong IT person to help you, he/she should be able to set this up for you and the software should work flawlessly. Here is a link to some additional information: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/features/default.aspx
(provided by the University of Georgia). If your IT person gets stuck, the University of Idaho has offered to help. If you need assistance from them please send me a message and I will put you in touch.
I do not have Office 2010 on my computer, but I have heard that NEERS5 is completely compatible. If anyone else has done any testing related to this and would be willing to share his/her results, please feel free to send a message out over the listserv.
