    Windows Vista Support

    DigitalDesignMedia Level 1
      Hi everyone,

      Will Director MX 2004 work under Window Vista? I read someones comments that they were using it and the only problems they were having was with a particular xtra. I have also read that director 11 is due in the first half of 2007 and one of the main updates is to make it work natively in Vista and on Intel MACs. Some comments from someone with first hand experience that has tested it on Vista would be very much appreciated.

      Thanks
      Jason

          Hi there, someone must have tried Vista with Director or at least know if this is possible. Your comments would be appreciated. Thanks Jason

            Hi Jason,

            There was a brief thread about this on Direct-L started on 17/9/2006 so
            you can read about it in the archives there. Here's the initial post and
            a salient reply:
            I have a project which Director is well-suited for, but I'm
            concerned about compatibility with Windows Vista. Can anyone who
            has tested projectors (with 3rd party xtras) under the beta offer
            any insights on how it is doing so far?


            Our project runs without issues on the current Vista beta version.
            we use the following Xtras:

            ActiveX.x32
            DirectSound.x32
            FileXtra4.x32
            TextXtra.x32
            Text Asset.x32
            pregex.x32
            PNG Import Export.x32
            Sound Control.x32
            Mix Services.x32
            OnStage.dll
            Font Asset.x32
            Font Xtra.x32
            Flash Asset.x32
            ImgXtra.x32
            Netfile.x32
            Os4Xtra.x32
            FileIo.x32
            INetURL.x32
            budapi.x32
            Netlingo.x32

            I only tried this as a projector, not in the Director app itself
            (which isn't installed yet on the Vista box.
