    Hello:

    I have been away for a while. I Just bought a new computer system which has windows vista installed. I would like to install the software but I am a little concerned because I really dont know if the software will run smoothly like on my Windows Xp. Now is there any updates for Windows Vista.

    I believe in Vista, you can tell it to run the software like it was running in XP. There's a box to click somewhere.....now, I have to go find that info. This would be the 2nd request today.

    Link doesn`t work as my trial.
    Is there anybody who can explain why I get error while opening trial. I uninstalled due to this issue. I`d love to buy TLC but my concern is that I may have the same problem and nobody give me back my money. I`m on Vista Ultimate

    I too am running Vista Ultimate and no issues

    I just wanted to let you know that I am running Vista Ultimate and have had no known issues to date with this software. You have to tweak the Vista User Control Settings to get most programs to function correctly.Google it and you'll be good to go. Personally, I've had better success graphically with Vista than XP and the overall dynamics of Vista U. are better than most.

    Good luck,
    Ryan.

    HOMESIGHT thank you for your reply. I think the issue is not Vista itself but language problem. I run VU which is basic Japanese, but I downloaded MUI English Language pack from Microsoft, so it looks like 100% english OS. Anyway, many programs I download shows Japanese pop-ups to click "NEXT" in order to continue,though the soft I download is 100% English and after download runs in English. I don`t want to change anything in my PC like keyboard etc because of "ONLY" this one soft which cannot handle thing and is designed toward english only PCs. There are plenty of software I have in english on my PC (Micromedia Flash, Dreamweaver, Acrobat Pro 8, NERO, etc) which don`t interfere with my PC. I think LC is great but developers should take this into account when making great tool as LC. Maybe this is only trial which has something wrong in it, but I don`t want to risk and buy something it won`t work.
    If not your reply I wouldn`t think back about being here. I have already forgotten, but it`s great someone like you replied and made me back here. I still want to have it, but...as mentioned above developers have still a lot of job to do, or maybe just some small update.

    Thank You I very appreciate your post.:image28:

    I just launched the trial software in Vista and it was working fine, but when I tried to use one of the 7 trial sample logo's, it started loading, and then my brand new laptop computer crashed and flashed the blue screen of death, and then restarted. Anyone have any ideas why? I'm almost afraid to try that software again. I started to go to that Windows Vista link above but it says page cannot be displayed. HELP!!! :image10:

    Hi Fisher,
    Welcome to the forum.

    I've never encountered this with my Trial on Vista before.
    ... anybody else reading this experience something similar?

    Sounds like I may have to update the trial's "wrapper" for Vista use.
    (I use a system from a company called Softwrap). I'll check on this.

    Marc

    Anyone have any thoughts or updates on this thread? I'm a little nervous about trying this on my new laptop again, but really feel like I need to see if this software is the answer to my logo design woes!!!! =)

    I believe pretty much any program running on XP is going to run on Vista, the 32 bit version. There may be some problems if you are running the 64 bit version of Vista. If you have more than 3 gigs of ram, then you most likely are running the 64 bit version or else any ram above 3 gigs, won't be recognized or used.

    I'm using the 64 bit version, I have 6 gigs of ram. The only thing so far that I've had a problem with not running are some Photoshop plugins.

    Installing some programs can be a problem, usually installing as administrator fixes the problem. For other problems, the software's installation notes or their support will usually have a procedure.

    few and far between now most programs have updates to compensate for the up grade to vista,and i think you will find that most will work without the updates

    good luck with your upgrade

    Well it is a fact that a large amount of programs require a different approach to proper functionality than they do when running on Win XP. Now Vista is making leaps (if you want to call it that) towards a smooth path in running programs as easily like XP does. However there is still a large majority of programs that will require some fixes.

    Let me just post some FAQ's from my website about Vista and software. These are not pulled from LBS or pertain to these products but are general knowledge you should know about your Vista system and the available work around.

    Does your software work with Windows Vista?


    Vista sometimes reports that our software is incompatible, however, it will give you the option to search for necessary components online. In most cases this search will complete successfully and our software will then work.

    In addition, some non-administrative user accounts will require you to right click the installer and select "Run as Administrator" in order for the installation to complete successfully.

    Runtime Error 339/429 on Vista.

    This error indicates that a file is not correctly installed on your system. In some cases it may be correctly installed for all standard users but not for the "Administrator" account, and you may only see this error when selecting "Run as Administrator".

    The built in Administrator account is not intended to be used as a user account. It is very secure and will not allow program components to be registered. Instead you should create an account with administrative rights, and use it instead of the built in Administrative account. This will help solve runtime error 339/429 on our software, and lots of other software that you may install in the future. If you do not want to create a standard user account (not recommended) you can follow the instructions below:

    If the problem started suddenly then a reinstall may fix it. If not, follow the directions below to register each file that is producing the error. You generally will only have to repeat the instructions 3 or 4 times:

    Click start
    In the search box type "cmd" without the quotes
    When CMD.exe appears above the search box right click it and select "Run As Administrator". This will open a command prompt with admin rights.
    Repeat the following for each file that is causing this error, replacing [filename] with the actual name of the file that is causing problems:


    -Type "regsvr32 [filename] /u" without the quotes
    -You will receive a prompt saying the file has been unregistered. Click OK.
    -Type "regsvr32 [filename]" (shortcut: press your UP ARROW and delete /u)
    -You will receive a prompt saying the file has been successfully registered.



    Run the program again. If you receive additional 339/429 errors repeat the steps above for those files. You may have to do this 3 or 4 times.

    The program I'm using shuts down immediately after I run it on the Vista operating system?

    This can be caused by Vista's Data Execution Prevention (DEP).

    On Windows Vista you may receive the error "[Program Name] has stopped working" when you start a program.

    This is an indication that Vista's Data Execution Prevention has prevented the program from running.

    In order to correct this complete the following steps:

    -Click Start > Control Panel > System
    -Click Advanced System Settings
    -Under the Performance area click Settings
    -Click the Data Execution Prevention tab

    Either A)

    -Choose "Turn on DEP for essential windows processes only"

    or B)

    -Choose "Turn on DEP for all program except those I select"
    -Click the "Add" button
    -Browse to the location that you installed the program in.
    -Select the program's EXE file
    -Click OK
    -Click OK to close the system settings window

    The program should run properly now.

    NOTE: Just again keep in mind this information is not specific to the products offered here but they will serve as a general guide for a lot of software you may run across on the internet.
