    software compatibility


    Hello,

    Can anyone here with a window 8 desktop, lend me his/her time to try to install this free software -

    MachStudio Pro - CNET Download.com

    I wanted to buy a desktop to run this software because my laptop didn't have the graphic hardware to run it. I realized that this software requirement is window 7 but nowadays, most desktop are window 8 based. I am afraid that the software won't install well on the win 8.

    very much thanks..

    You could try running it in Compatability Mode for win 7 if problems occur.

    I am aware of the Compatability Mode but i read that not all softwares will work well in win 8. Especially this software that i want because it is a 'dead' software. The developers stopped working on the software and made it free so there's no latest 'fix' nor help and it may not work in win 8.

    I still hope someone here can help me to try it...

    You might get more takers if you could find a download site other than cnet. They seem to have gone over to the dark side with paid add-ons.

    Why not just install it & see if it works ?

    If it doesn't, uninstall it & try another program.

    I have installed on my window 7 laptop but i cant run it because of my graphic card so i will need to buy a computer with better graphic card to run this software. And most computers run on window 8 and i am afraid that the software wont work.

    Here's another download link - Download MachStudio Pro: Experience what real-time 3D is all about

    The dead website is put into a archive..

    Just to add on, this software originally cost 4000 dollars but it is made free a few years ago. It is not just any rendering program but rendering in real-time. It is a extremely valuable software!

    Do you have a friend who would let you try it out on his or her Windows 8 computer ?

    edit--- I'll download it & see if it works on my Windows 8 Pro & post the results later................

    I got it downloaded from here--

    Download CHIP.eu - MachStudio Pro 2 English EN

    I got it installed but it wouldn't work.

    It said among other things, my graphics card was incompatable.
