    I had two tactics CDs are really liked-- Chess Tactics for Beginners and Chess Tactics for Intermediate Players-- but unfortunately neither of them work with Windows 7. The only tactics software I know of that does work with Windows 7 is CT Art 4.0, which got horrendous reviews on Amazon.com. Does anyone know of any good tactics software that works with Windows 7?

    Edit: Good news-- if you right click on the Chess Tactics for Beginners , click "properties" and then select compatibility for Windows XP Service Pack 3, it works
