The website says this is compatible only up to XP, the README file says it's compatible up to Vista. When I tried it on my Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit computer, it didn't display any of my hard drives in the main window and only two hard drives under the partition tab. It's probably not 64-bit compatible. (v3.3 Beta)

Runs just fine on my Win 7 64-bit machine.

DPC Latency Checker is a must have in any computer debugging toolkit for its ability to highlight arcane system problems; it won't fix them, but will assert their existence beyond reasonable doubt.

From the webpage: "DPC Latency Checker is a Windows tool that analyses the capabilities of a computer system to handle real-time data streams properly. It may help to find the cause for interruptions in real-time audio and video streams, also known as drop-outs."
