That's interesting, on my Win7 from 3.2 the tools do not seem to work.
But I can confirm the network issue, I must set another DNS server after every 
boot, then network and internet works.

Thirded, except I'm stable with 2GB min/max and have the Win7 swapfile
fixed at 1GB. It didn't seem to like resizing the swap file. My Win7 gets
very light use, however.

Must be their way to encourage you to switch completely to Linux!

There might be a GSoC suggestion to update them but like you found, I
don't think they have an active maintainer.

Seems like the Windows-Tools has been in-active for a long time. Except for 
power-settings adjustments in 2017, nothing else has happened since 2016. 

Is there a re-design made for Qubes 4 perhaps? Any ideas where to look or 
anyone got sources?

Yes, I can second this issue, I experience it too and had to turn off dynamic 
memory. Although I did not confirm if it was the case the last 1-2 months or 
so. I also had to be put on minimum Memory at 4GB, since 3GB or 3.5GB RAM 
sometimes made Win7 crash. 4GB+ made it stable on my system. 

I also brought over my Win7 install from Qubes 3.2. When I find a new clean 
install medium that I can be sure is 100% authentic, I'll re-install on Qubes 4 
to test it out, but I'm hoping to get a clean verified install medium first. 
Maybe someone knows any reliable place to find trustworthy hash-sum values of 
the MS Win7 iso-files. I've seen some posted once, but it was on an unreliable 
website at the time. For some weird out reason I can't use my legal license key 
to download the medium on the MS-website for a legal clean Win7 copy... seems 
like it isn't uncommon either for others? Some reliable hash values would be 
wonderous for more trustworthy installs on Qubes.

Also on my Qubes 3.2. Win7 on Qubes 4, I can easily transfer files in and out 
of Win7, and everything else Qubes related "seems" to work, except I have no 
internet connection. Just a heads up, and does anyone else experience this 
issue too from their Win7 that came from Qubes 3.2?

I can't see any windows-tools in the repository in Qubes 4, was it integrated 
into Qubes from the beginning, done in a different way, or maybe its not been 
done yet?

It seems very unfeasible to install Win7 without the qubes windows tools, or an 
Qubes 4 alternative that does the same. Does anyone know where we are at with 
these tools? I can't imagine installing Win7 is a good idea without it. Maybe 
find another computer, install Qubes 3.2. on it, install a new fresh Win7, 
backup, and then transfer it to Qubes 4?

Addition: In order to get a stable Windows 7, I had to disable memory balancing 
AND set the min and max memory to the same value. Otherwise, the VM would crash 
each time the memory balancing occured.

Standalone Windows 7 VMs seem to work, though only without seamless GUI.
But I have not been able to get template-based windows VMs, they always fail 
with "Cannot execute qrexec-daemon!".
