I notice in the system requirements it jumps from Windows XP to Windows 7. Can I not run the 30 day trial on my Windows Vista Computer?
When attempting to start Creo Parametric, there's a small screen which says "message" in it and an "Ok" box, but it disappears quickly and nothing else happens. I figured it was because I was running Windows Vista. Any ideas on what would have caused this?
It only shows for a fraction of a second, and I haven't been able to catch it. I tryed opening creo a few times to get a good idea of what I see in that moment: in the tray along the bottom of the screen it momentarily shows a window called "Message," the approx 1 inch window has the header "message," there's a white exclamation point in a orange safety triangle at the left top of the box, right top says "message," and across the bottom it has an "okay" button. I'm not hitting anything that would select the okay, it just goes away.
Am running Creo 2 on a toshiba laptop with vista business... with no problems.
Do you have full admin access too your computer or are you a standard user? i have found that sometimes vista blocks programs processes. try right clicking on the creo parametric icon and choose run as administrator and see if that helps. other than that i'd suggest reinstalling using the run as administrator and make sure your antivirus is disabled or set to ignore creo during install.
hope any of this helps gd luck
