I realize it's not the same revision but I wanted to contribute that I have RSLinx Classic 2.57 running on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, without RSLogix Emulate 500 installed, and the Emulate 500 (DH485) driver is still an option.

The RA Knowledgebase seems to have some conflicting information.

The RSLinx Classic 2.58 Release Notes say the RSEmulate 500 driver is supported in Windows 7.

I couldn't find a Knowledgebase edition of the RSLinx Classic 2.59 release notes.

But the current RSLinx Classic support matrix for versions 2.58 and 2.59 shows the RSEmulate 500 driver not supported in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

So I don't know which one is right. Somebody needs to get their wrist slapped for letting two "current" documents conflict.
