I don't have Windows7, but do run MMTTY V1.66G with WL V10.73D with the 
MMTTY plug in.  I think your problem may lie in where you are installing 
things.  I have MMTTY installed in the root directory C:\ rather than in 
Program Files.  This avoids the problem with the Virtual Store path with 
User Account Control, which I hear Windows 7 also employs.  I do have WL 
installed in Program Files and the WL plug in must also be installed to the 
WL program folder in Program Files.  If the plug in is successful you should 
find the file mmrtty.ocx in your WL Programs folder.  I think this is what 
makes MMTTY show up in the TU pull down menu.  You then point it to your 
MMTTY installation.  Hope this helps.
