InCtrl5 replacement?

    One big disappointment when I upgraded from W2K to Windows 7 was that
    InCtrl5, an old installation tracking program from PC Magazine, no
    longer worked. I like its simplicity and lack of pretension about
    "fixing" anything. It just records changes in files and the registry. Is
    there such a program that is Windows 7 (64) compatible?

    Read that forum thread, did the changes, but the program still fails
    to work for me. I feel that somehow the environment does not get changed
    properly. Anyway inctrl5 ends up with everything "greyed out", and I can't
    type in any field. I'm running windows7 Ultimate.
    Any thoughts?

    No, except that forum thread makes it too complicated. I am running 64
    bit Windows 7 Ultimate, and all I had to do was right click on
    InCtrl5.exe, select "Troubleshoot compatibility," and walk through the
    steps. After that, I could successfully run InCtrl5 like any other program.
