DevStudio is no longer supported, and it never officially supported Vista or Win 7. Also I haven't tried to install or use it on these Windows versions. You could give it a try, but with the enhabced security (DevStudio 9 uses Internet Explorer for some views) it might fail.

MSI setups created with DevStudio 9 should work on Vista and Win 7 (but without specific support for these versions) because compatibility was a very important topic when Microsoft developed and tested Vista and Win 7.

InstallScript setups probably also should work, at least on 32 bit versions of Vista and Win 7. But you should test thoroughly because it's not officially supported.
