Don't know about SF-7, but I have installed other older versions of SF w/o issue (9 and 10). What is the error message? Otherwise,I think you can run it in the demo mode to try it out. Same goes for 8, 9, 10 and 11. FWIW, I prefer the versions prior to 11. SCS forked up the 'Record' and Plug-in Chainer GUI.

Try using the off-line version of registration. I don't think SF has to be 'registered' to try it in the demo mode. There's other restrictions though. Or, try the SF11 demo. If that gives you the same error, you will know it's not a SCS/Magix issue. There are probably versions of SF pro 9 and 10 around for a relative lower cost.
