I just purchased Alibre and was reading the instalation manual. I came across where it said PDF creator would not work on Vista. I purchased a new Vista computer to to install CAM SOFT Motion software to retrofit a CNC plasma torch. I want to use Alibre to design my parts on. Should I delete Vista and install XP or would that be a step backwards?
Did you buy your computer locally and very recently? maybe you can get the seller to change over to XP at no charge or a reduced one? I'm not knowledgeable about OS and where it is going in the future, but just bought a new computer and decided to stay with what I knew, XP pro. I run packaged Alibre Pro with VM Pro.
There is now a PDF creator for Vista. It works slightly different as it requires the pdf creator to be running before creating the file. Anyhow it does work.
BTW: Alibre V11 runs faster on Vista than XP.
I have not looked at the CD but the user manual is for Version 10. I was thinking I purchased Version 11 talking to the sales man.
Thank You for your input
