I have asked the seller if it would run Autosketch 2.1 like my Toshiba Satellite A105-S4344 with XP PRO operating system. If you are familiar with the answer to this question please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you know of a new computer on the market that will run 2.1 please let me know. The only reason I believe the Dell will run it is because they will install XP PRO before shipping. Please let me know if you have any information concerning this issue.
Thanks for your answer but that is not much help. Give me a breakdown of what I need to put together a laptop or desktop that will run 2.1, I can't do it and neither can my EE. I understand Microsoft will no longer support XP upgrades after next year. I don't really care since I can keep a drawing computer off the web. However it would be very helpful to be able to link into the web while drawing to check for component specs, drawings, etc. So if I can find anything that will run 2.1 I would be happy to try it.
I have been running AS 2.1 on an XP machine for years. No problem. You can also put virtual machine on a win 7 machine and run it. It has to be the 32bit win7 not the 64. I lost my disc. Do you still have one?
