I have been running WDSC on both Win 7 Beta and Win 7 RTM (64-bit)
without any issues. I have never received that message. Sorry I
couldn't be more help.

Subject: WSDC on Windows 7
Good Friday, All!
Has anyone had any luck installing WSDC on Windows 7 and successfully
able to log in? I have no problem running the program, but when it
comes to login, I get this window popping up:
Connection to xxx could not be established An unknown error occurred
connecting to xxx. Check if you have connection to the host. If the
connection is not broken, check that TCP/IP is configured correctly on
the local machine and all host servers are started on xxx.
(xxx) is our 400 IP address.
I did a quick search on it, and people have mentioned that it might be a
firewall issue. I disabled the firewall, but still no luck.
Not sure if this is important, but I'm running Windows 7 64bit Business
Edition on WSDC v7.0.0.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
