This is 1.5.25 as you noted and, as such, will work as well or as poorly
as 1.5.25 always has.  As a warning, 1.5.x doesn't have a great record
on W7 machines.  And I have to add the obligatory warning that 1.5.25
is a dead branch so you'll see no further development or bug fixes
there.  The take-away from this last statement is that you should keep
an eye on 1.7.x and, to the extent possible, help resolve problems that
you find there so you have an upgrade path if/when 1.5.25 lets you
