Program Compatibility Assistant issue - call for testing

Just installed TB 13b4 on my Mom's Windows 7 machine, and I didn't get 
any compatibility assistant dialog errors after setting TB to be the 
default mail client.

Of course, I can't *guarantee* that this machine hasn't had TB on it 
before - it's didn't when I started, but it's possible I once installed 
it temporarily to test something a few months back.

Anyhow, there's one data point.
