Most likely NONE!

Windows 7 is a reworked Vista so if the software in question would not run under Vista it's not going to run under 7.

You should test your Hardware & Software with The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor always before attempting to install 7 to see what will and what will not work.

If you are using a 64 Bit version of Ultimate you may need to change it to a 32 Bit as some 32 Bit applications may not work on a 64 Bit OS.

Or you could try XP Mode under Ultimate but your hardware needs to support Vitalization to make this work.
