Yes, but it may be more expensive then buying the new Cakewalk pyro Audio Creator 1.5 ($40). The cost will depend on your version of Windows 7 among other issues.

From the Cakewalk site: "pyro 5 and the other versions listed above will not launch properly under Windows 7. They will not function at all."

The work-around is to run the software such that it thinks you are using an older version of Windows. There are a two ways to do this with one computer: 1) run a dual boot system with Window 7 and an older version of windows, 2) run a virtual computer with an older version of Windows inside the Windows 7 system using Parallels, VMWare or Virtual PC.

In most cases for either option, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can get the virtual computer with XP for free. Download Microsoft's Virtual PC and then the XP mode package. Install them in order and install your Cakewalk software to the XP computer as if that is the only computer. The only issues can come up is that peripherals (like printers) can't be installed on both the real and the virtual computer and sharing files has to be done by saving to optical or other external media.

I'm not sure how much of a learning curve would be involved but there is a free audio editor available. See http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ for more information - the Win7 version is still in beta but works.

I hope this helps.

The software disk I have will not work on Windows 7


Depending on the Windows version you have, you may be able to use the software. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate, you can download the Microsft Virtual PC and XP mode and install them on your computer. In so doing you will be able to run Windows XP on top of Windows 7. While running XP you can install that software and run it from XP. You will be able to communicate with Internet, the printers, everything.
Sorry, but you cannot install XP mode on other versions of Windows 7 such as W7 Basic, Home Premium, Just Pro and Ultimate.

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

Pyro plus does not work on windows 7


If a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues you have to right click on the executable file that will start the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check the Windows version you know the program worked with before. You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows

Registration problems


To run as administrator in Vista, the Pyro website offeres the following instructions:

"There could be an issue with Vista's User Account Control. Right-click the Audio Creator shortcut you use and choose "Properties." Then click the "Advanced" button at the bottom of the window that opens. You'll be able to check "Run as Administrator" there. Click OK and from then on Audio Creator will run in admin mode when it's launched from that shortcut. You will then be able to enter your Serial and Registration Code."

When I tried to enter the registration code manually, the program would not accept it. When I copied and pasted the code from the email (no typing), the program accepted it. Good luck.
