Preferably more than one. Test with Seven as well as Vista (yes, there are 
still some Vista users out there). What about the difference between Starter 
versus Home Basic versus Home Premium versus Professional versus Ultimate 
versus whatever? To be 100% safe, you probably need to test with all those 
as well.

Test on machines running the various major antivirus packages, because you 
have no idea how they might screw things up.

In other words, with Windows the guideline is: test till it hurts. Then test 
some more.
