I just switched from XP to 7 and have viewer 2.8 on both
I find differences only if the viewers are set up differently.
If one runs in basic and the other in advanced mode you would see big differences.
Even if both are running advanced there are hundreds of settings that may differ.

So focus on viewer settings and not on OS:smileywink:

It doesn't make ANY difference to your viewer whether your computer is running on Windows XP or Windows 7.  All of the SL viewers are 32-bit programs, but Windows 7 (which can run 64-bit programs) can run any of the viewers without needing to be told that they are 32-bit.  Changing the compatability to XP is really unnecessary.  The viewer will not look any different unless you have made changes in Preferences or, as Dora says, you are running V2 in Basic mode on one system and in Advanced mode on the other.
