Getting the AG software to work under Windows 7

There is a known issue with running the integrated "Multicast Beacon" using Windows 7, which causes the application to crash with a python error message when connecting to a Virtual Venue.

To fix this issue, start up the Venue Client but do not connect to a Venue. Then simply turn off the Multicast Beacon via Tools -> Preferences -> Network and disable the "Run integrated multicast beacon client" setting.

Once this setting is saved, the rest of the Access Grid Toolkit should perform as expected.

This has been tested using AGTK 3.2beta and the 3.2 release.
