Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Dear All,

I've just started in a new company and they've given me a nice new 64 Bit PC with Windows 7, and asked me to install Mathcad 12...(?!)

Installation said it went OK but it doesn't open let alone work.

Any ideas?? Think I'm asking the impossible....


RE: Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Oh, and you probably don't REALLY want M12 if you can avoid it; that version was short-lived because it was extremely buggy.

RE: Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Thanks everyone,

Unfortunately I have to make do with what we've got at the moment but I'm push for the latest version...


RE: Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Mechwitch, did you get MathCAD 12 to work on Windows 7 64 bit? If so what steps did you take?

RE: Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Hi there JC33.

Couldn't get it working at all..... Dealing with it the old-fashioned way: I now kick someone off another PC to use it...!!


RE: Mathcad 12 + Windows 7

Yes, the XP emulator didn't seem to work.  The software seemed to install fine under the emulator but would NOT run.
