  The best way to run the program under Windows 7 is the "Virtual PC Windows XP Mode". You can find an easy guide for installing  [here|]. Otherwise you can directly install the suite under Windows 7, but this will get you a higher probability fot getting an error. 

h3. What is a via-file?

Essentially, VISICORE archives are simply zip files with a .via extension. So you can easy rename the .via extension into zip, extract the data and work with the TIFF-files. The via files contain the actual image or 3d data files and an xml description of the metadata involved. This xml description file is called MANIFEST.xml and specifies data such as unit size and dimensions. In addition, it contains a reference to the actual data files.
