  No, I have never had success with anything above Xp for NCU. XP mode 
in windows 7 never worked, neither have older versions of VPC, which XP 
mode is based on. Virtualbox is just terrible at handing anything with 
USB. But that might have changed with 3.2.x and the re branding. NCU is 
one of the sole reasons I went back to XP on my 64 bit laptop. The other 
being the Quicktake 150 software. Someone needs to write at the bare 
minimum a native 32 bit NCU clone, like NCX on OS X. I would love to see 
a 64 bit native version as well, to take advantage of a higher 
instruction set. Oh well, I can't do it. I don't know enough 
programming, just some python and basic.
