Q. What platforms does D7 and SW7 support.

A. A Projector built with the Use System Player option in the File>Create Projector>Options dialog box requires that the IMLlib and DPlib libraries from SW7 are installed in your System folder. (They are put there automatically by the SW7 install). See the D7 FAQ for more info.
