    attempting to run Windows Consumer Preview

    Antivirus in more Windows on the same computer.


    I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with installed BitDefender Total Security, and have recently installed Windows Developer Preview.
    I can approach any data on Win7 through Developer Preview.
    However, since I have antivirus on Win7, I wanted that one to run on both.

    However, it seems that I can run any program on both except antivirus.

    Is there a way to run it?

    When I try, I keep getting:

    bdagent.exe - System Error
    The program can't start because mfc100u.dll is missing from your
    computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.

    you have to install in wdp so it has access to the system files and your user profile...

    isn't there a way to import data from one to other registry or wherever are there data.
    because i could start firefox and office and every other app, and it would automatically adapt it.

    anything is possible, but the easiest way is run the installer in wdp...it's a guard dog...it needs special permissions....

    I have a question.

    When I try installing BitDefender on Windows 8,
    I get the following:

    Bitdefender
    Your computer doesn't meet the minimum system requirements for
    installing Bitdefender 2012.

    What should I do?

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Edit:
    Never mind. I solved it by running it with compatibility of Windows 7.
