    dsdsdsdsd Level 1
      hello;

      I am very excited about director 11 - but I am currently using ( happily ) D10; I am about to get a new pc with vista - will director 10 MX 2004 work on a vista?

      thanks

              So there you have it - it /doesn't/ work for everyone. However, with the
              expected release date a month or so hence you could probably get by with
              your current setup until then and put the new version of Director on
              your new machine with Vista

                It works for me with Vista Ultimate and MX2004. I am running it on a Mac
                Pro in Parallels, and it works as well as XP. The only issue I have
                found is with 3D (this happens in projectors on Vista also), Vista
                doesn't play well with the DirectX5 or DirectX7 renderers in all cases
                (for instance non-DTS 3d sprites with backgroundTransparent ink show up
                bright red). This is easily circumvented by using OpenGL as the renderer
                by the way.

                But apart from that, I have had no problems.

                  I have a simple presentation with a quicktime loop at the beginning. It
                  crashes after about 2 hours if I leave looping. I would be reluctant to use
                  it on a kiosk, and cross my fingers if I have to use that laptop for a
                  presentation. It seems to be a combination of h264, Vista and video card on
                  the particular laptop. But I haven't had time to try installing xp on the
                  same laptop to figure out for sure which one to blame.
