Hi Chris,

While I'm no aware of any specific issues related to Win7 if you provide
some test data I could try your command on my Win7 x64. So as to make sure
about the problem you might also want to test with the binaries available at
http://vbkto.dyndns.org/sdk/  (Run sdkshell.bat for the command prompt).

Best regards,
