Windows 7 32 bit and X4

Does X4 work without hitches on Windows 7 32bit?

I see a post where some are having issue with 64 bit.

I'm converting my PC to Win 7 but don't want to install programs that don't work.

regards

  • CorelDRAW 4 works better on Windows7 than XP or Vista. No need to upgrade, ServicePack or patch anything. I use it since several months and is very fast, and stable, seems that Win7 increases their speed.

    I'm curious about this as well. Ariel, are you using X4 on Windows 7 with 64-bit? I'm going to be getting a new laptop soon and to get the features I'd like to have, I may need to go with a 64-bit machine.

    No, I use the 32-version. There's no great advantadges to use the 64 bits version on my workflow.

    Patti, I'm in the same boat as you.

    I'd really love to dump this Vista computer and move on to Windows 7 but I've been reading conflicting reports about 64-bit compatibility.

    Hugh...........are you out there? I think you are using a 64 bit Windows 7 machine, aren't you?

    I'm seriously concerned about the drivers for my cutters and some of my embroidery software.

    Also, can someone explain how the XP mode runs under Windows 7?  I've read a few articles and I'm still confused.

    thanks

    I'm using Windows 7 64bit Home Premium edition on a 64bit system and CorelDraw X4 has been working flawlessly.

    Diane, I do indeed have Windows 7 Pro - 64 bit and I also have downloaded the Virtual Machine and WinXP from Microsoft's web site. This WinXP is tailored to run under the Virtual Machine, it is not from a CD/DVD.

    I did this in order to use one of my plotter programs that has a dongle. Unfortunately, the maker of the plotter software does not have an Win7 64 bit driver for the dongle (they do have a Win7 - 32 bit driver, but unusable under Win7-64). With the Virtual Machine and the WinXP, running under it, I can share my hardware ports (USB, Serial COM ports, Printer port) to the WinXP. Thus, I can run my plotter software (and its dongle driver), under WinXP, which runs under Win7....

    Other programs, which run under WinXP, do not rely upon any hardware, and do not run natively under Win7-64 bit, can be run from the Win7 Start menu, but the application is running in a WinXP mode.

    Basically, almost any program that runs under Windows XP, can run under Windows 7 -64 bit with MS'es Virtual Machine and WinXP. Especially those items that the manufacturers do not provide a Win7-64 bit hardware driver. Another example is my scanner, Cannon has a Win 7 - 32 bit driver for it, but does not supply a Win 7 - 64 bit driver. Ergo, I obtained the WinXP driver for it and loaded that into the WinXP client on my Win 7 - 64 bit machine.

    For my current workstation (which is a WinXP Pro), I am considering a Win7 - 32 bit update to it, but I am also thinking of a Win7 - 64 bit for the workstation. I just have not made up my mind, yet.  Big Smile

    I hope this helps you.

    I'm on Windows 7 64-bit and haven't run into any problems at all running X4.

    Thanks Hugh for the lengthy reply.

    I wasn't even serious about 64 bit as I have so many programs that are only at XP level and I rely on for my work.
    My main programs do allow 64 bit so now will contemplate a whole new upgrade - not just OS.

    X4 works fine on Win7 64bit for sure.

  • So far after week's experience:

    + X4 works generally very fast and precise with win7 / 64 bit

    - scrapbook doesn't work right, impossible to save

    - one measurement changed it values after opening the file again

    - bitstream font nav doesn't work right...installing fonts through that didn't work

    BFN does not install PS fonts. IT seems ok with TTF and OpenType. Even
    in X5, BFN, after SP-1, will install a PS font, but than it won;t "see"
    it as being installed--however it is there :-\

  • Hello Avondale87; My thoughts are not just CorelDraw but all the software you are using and going to use. Do the homework and check with the people that make the software and the hardware to see what THEY recommend. It's no fun trying to make something work on something it was not made for.

    HI.

    Vista has really come a long way to be a stable OS. It has a bad rep from the initial start, but it really is a good OS now.
