It should, but I need to update the instructions. On Windows 7, the files will need to go into a different location.
I finally have a copy of Windows 7 installed, and will be looking at what we need to do to officially support Windows 7 for all of our games. More on this in our June newsletter (which I'm going to be a little late in delivering).

I can answer this one. lol In order to make the Fashion Designer Kit work in Windows 7, you have to place the files in this folder:
C:\users\*Your Name Here*\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Fashion Cents Deluxe\addons\
Why, oh, why they make it so complicated I will never know. However, there is a little more complication to this. The folder "AppData" (and only this one, but it makes the others hidden, too) is hidden. You have to unhide the hidden folder.

I've updated the directory locations in section 4 of the the Fashion Designer Kit instructions to match Fashion Cents Deluxe v1.1.1. (Sorry it took so long, but I forgot)
I uploaded a new FashionDesignerKit.zip file to replace the earlier one. For those of you who already have the kit, here's what changed:
On Windows XP, the add-on files need to be placed in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\MyGameCompany\FashionCents\addons
On Windows Vista/7, the add-on files need to be placed in:
Note: if you don't see the Application Data directory on XP, or the AppData directory on Vista/7, go to Tools->Folder Options, click on the View tab, and click the "Show hidden files and folders" button. Then click OK.

A Thousand Thanks
I have wanted to be able to use the add ons since I bought the deluxe version probably 2 years ago and it would never work on Vista, now it does, thank you so so much!
