I use VAP, ComSkip & VideoRedo on Windows 7 MC - it works well but the VAP author doesn't understand the merits of live detection
The benefit of using VAP/VideoRedo is that you have many choices for your input/output file format and you can also automate frame-accurate H.264 editing without re-encoding the file. It's also all point & click - really, really simple stuff.
The downside is that you have to buy VideoRedo ($100) although, it's not really a downside as the software is useful for everything and can easily become your defacto video editing software for any other projects (camcorder etc). So, it can replace a lot of other, much more limited, video editing software.
VAP is not widely known, it has a very small user base, but it is very solid and works very well. It's truly set it and forget it. WAY easier then DVRMS-Toolbox and it mimics the core functionality very well such that there's little I miss from the old Toolbox days

I was always hoping VAP would take off like a rocket once it became well known and largely replace DVRMS-Toolbox, MCE Buddy etc but it's strongest features, the author, can also be it's weakest feature
It's a 15 minute install (if that) and I spend 0 hours on it after installing - period. Truly automated commercial detection and removal etc.
But the bottom line is, VAP is very, very well done and merits serious consideration, especially if buying VideoRedo isn't a deal-breaker for you.
