I've installed AC10 on a WinXP Home machine (that is, before noticing the officially supported OSs). It worked initially, until just a couple of days ago it opened up a project and all pens were black. Went to Pen Sets, none was selected. When I selected one of them, things got back to normal.
Similar things have misbehaved since then.
Bottom line: has anybody run it on WinXP Home successfully? Or must I definitely upgrade to Pro/x64?
Many thanks, you guys.
MacBook Pro 17" 2.4GHz, MacOS X 10.5.6, ArchiCAD 11 & 12, WinXP, Vista (well, not really Vista...)
The major difference between XP Pro and Home edition is that Pro has advanced networking capabilities. Other than that they are basically the sam OS. It sounds more like a file or specific Archicad related problem.
Good question.I really don't think that the differences are so critical. Both Operating systems are x32 . In fact XP Home is a major step forward from windows 2000 PRO, yea ok I know that GS has dropt that OS as well. Any way the following link will explain the differences between XP Pro and HE. http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_home_pro.asp
I still don't think that it's an OS related problem though.
