Hi I am trying to install Mathcad prime 3.1 on windows 10, now I decided to clean my PC and do a reset as I had a load of apps I wasn't using anymore. When I tried to install Mathcad prime back on it keeps failing. I get a strange 101% installation notification bar in red and that the application has failed due to some VC80 issue. Anyone else had this problem.
Are you installing the right Prime 3.1 (32/64 bit) on the right windows 10 (32/64 bit), and do you have the correct prerequisites installed (Visual C runtime 32/64 bit)?
So first clean my PC, what I mean by this is a wiped my machine all apps and data, fresh copy of windows. I eventually got this working by only installing the 32 bit version, for now this will do until they fix all the bugs. Sorry Vladimir I don't have a screenshot of the issue anymore.
According to this, Prime 3.1 isn't supported in Windows 10. It might still be able to be installed, just not supported.
I'm a bit annoyed that PTC didn't look ahead to Windows 10. It's been officially out for like a year and a half. Microsoft puts out developer editions for a reason. Now that our work PC's are being updated we have to try to install unsupported software.
