How to get Feedback Tool on Windows 7 RC..?

Posted by hilbertv on May 28, 2009

                Windows 7 Feedback Tool is a Pre-release only tool and the launch UI for the Feedback tool could not be found in Windows 7 RC as in Betas. But still the tool is in Windows 7 RC and you can report bugs..!

               You will not be able to find the Feedback Tool in start menu but rather it could be started by entering the following in Command prompt.

                                   rundll32.exe FeedbackTool.dll,ShowWizard

                   Please do remember that the above is case sensitive. To be productive enough you can create a shortcut as follows:

                                1. Right click on the desktop and select New, Shortcut.

                                2. Enter “rundll32.exe FeedbackTool.dll,ShowWizard” (less the Quotes) in ‘Enter the Location of the Item’ field.

                                3. Click Next, and provide shortcut name as “Send Feedback”.

                                4. Click Finish, and it is done.

                 As Microsoft Claims Windows 7 RC as a stronger build you are limited to report bugs only on the following grounds,

                                  * Issues that Prevent installation or Upgrade.

                                  * Any issues that involve data loss or corruption.

                                  * Security issues.

                                  * Regression from Windows Vista SP1 or Windows 7 Beta (Things worked before but not in RC)

                                 * Any application or device issues that prevent you form using Windows 7 as your primary OS.

                                 * Reproducible Crashes or hangs (issues that you cannot reproduce will be captured by CEIP Telemetry).

                     Be sure that you have activated you copy of Windows 7 RC prior to using Feedback tool.
