"need tethering software for Windows 7 laptop"


US
          

I purchased Lightroom 3 last year. It promised support for the D7000. After much frustration, I got it working on my iMac, but not my Windows 7 laptop. I wish it was the other way around, because I can't very well take my iMac on location. I need it working on the Dell laptop.
Does anyone know if this has been resolved in Lightroom 4? I don't want to shell out the $$ for the upgrade if it hasn't. Do any of the Nikon software titles work for tethered shooting with the D7000? Maybe other products are better, such as Breeze's NK Remote?

My main need is Live View on my laptop screen. I can't see the focus on eyes well enough when previewing a shot in the D7000's LCD. When I'm shooting business portraits I have to know that I have the eyes spot on. The subjects are already b!tc#ing and moaning that they have to be there in the first place, so it's near impossible, or at the least very difficult and humiliating to ask them to sit again. I use a single spot for auto focus and use the multiselector to put it on an eye, but sometimes it's still not perfect. And I need to be able to still shoot wide open or near (f/1.8-2.8 or f/3.0 at least) to blur background.

I have to get tethering software that will work on a Windows 7 laptop so I can see the focus on the eyes on the laptop screen before I release the shutter. Please Help Nikonians. Thanks! -Craig
