I was able to install WDSC V7 on windows 7 following the procedures outlined
on this page:

There is a cleanup procedure, it you have an unsuccessful install. You will
need to download a 1.4 gb update file. You will link to this file during
the install process.
We are on V5R4.

Our PC group has us on the schedule to receive upgrades including going
from XP to Windows 7. However, we're not scheduled (or budgeted) to
upgrade from V5R4 on the midrange system nor RDPi. I've been tasked with
making sure the Windows 7 upgrade will work for us. Does anyone know to
what patch the post in the archives referred to below refers? (It was
posted by Dave Shaw in mid-March of last year.)

"WDSCi 7.0 needed a patch to avoid certain problems on Vista and Win 7 "

I've loaded the most recent version of Installation manager and have a
repository with all the WDSC 7 patches of which I'm aware. But when I
install I get the following error:
