V20 Problems with Vista?


Chuck Reamer

I have just installed V20 on my new Vista PC, it will run but has a problem. After a couple of minutes it stops responding, works fine up till then.

Has anyone else experienced problems with Vista and V20, is there a setting I could try to play with that may help the situation.
Hi. I'm having exactly the same problem.
I'm running Vista Home Premium on a Core Duo 1,73 with 2 GB RAM and a GeForce Go 7400.
I have installed the Service Pack 7 today but there is no change (might even get worse, but just a feeling). In the readme of the update it says:
This release of Solid Edge has been certified to run on the following:
· Windows XP Professional® operating system (32 bit or 64 bit)
· Windows Vista Business® or Vista Enterprise® operating system (32 bit or 64 bit)
· Internet Explorer 7.0 (IE 6.0 minimum)
According to this the Home Premium version of Vista seems to be the problem.

Anyone having an idea?
I think I found a solution. After installing the latest nVidia drivers for my card it didn't crash anymore.
Maybe it's only the solution for my system, maybe although for other's...
