Re: Can NX7.5 files be opened in NX7?

See, this is what I mean by rumors!!!!!
NO, NX 7.5 was a special situation which I hope never happens again, PERIOD.

NX 8 Supported Platforms - Windows
NX 8 Supported Platforms - Windows
This document outlines the supported operating systems (Windows) for NX8.
Customers moving to Windows 7 must run NX 64-bit, as SPLM is not certifying
NX 32-bit on Windows 7. The increased memory requirements of Windows 7
make 64-bit the only logical choice. For Windows 7 the only NX choice is
Support for Windows Vista on NX8 will be limited in order to allow SPLM to
exploit the full benefits of Windows 7. Although Windows Vista should
work, SPLM is no longer testing or certifying Windows Vista. There are no
plans to certify any new hardware on Windows Vista.
SPLM will support Windows XP (both 32-bt and 64-bit versions) running NX8
but it will be conditionally based on available support provided by
Microsoft as Windows XP reaches its end of life and the availability of 3rd
party software and drivers. This support is to allow customers enough time
to migrate to Windows 7 or alternatives like Linux or MacOS. The NX
Windows development, testing and certification platform going forward is
Windows 7 64-bit. There will be no new hardware certification testing on
Windows XP starting with NX8.
Windows 7 Details
• Windows 7 64-bit is the recommended Windows platform for NX8. There
is no 32-bit NX support for Windows 7. The memory limitations of a
32-bit have been forcing SPLM customers to 64-bits as operations
systems, applications and data models continue to grow. SPLM cannot
emphasis the importance of customers moving to Windows 7 64-bit.
• The server version of W7 (Server 2008R2) is 64-bit only.
• Workstations and mobile laptops already come with 64-bit versions of
W7 as standard. Many consumer systems ship with the 64-bit home
• SPLM has found that W7 requires significantly more memory when
compared to WXP. Independent customer testing as well as testing
performed by our OEM partners confirmed this. The recommended memory
requirement for NX on W7 is 6GB, which necessitates Windows 7 64-bits.
• With the success of Windows 7, SPLM is not only moving its development
environment to Windows 7 but also has begun taking advantage of new
and exciting Windows 7 features. Therefore, SPLM cannot guarantee
compatibility of NX8 on Windows Vista.
• Windows Vista support is limited to the extent that SPLM can duplicate
reported problems on Windows 7. There is no new hardware
certification testing planned for Windows Vista. All Windows
certification and testing is migrating to Windows 7 64-bit only.
• Windows Vista users should consider moving to Windows 7.
• Windows XP has reached its logical end of life. Microsoft mainstream
support actually ended in April of 2009 with optional paid support
ending by April 2014. Unless customers purchased extended support
from Microsoft within 90 days, they no longer can purchase support.
SPLM support for Windows XP is limited to the extent that SPLM can
duplicate problems on Windows 7. Therefore, Windows XP specific
issues may not be resolved.
• At such time, that SPLM can no longer get updates, patches or drivers
from Microsoft or 3rd party hardware/software partners, SPLM will
drop all support for WXP. It is anticipated that this will occur
during the lifecycle of NX8 therefore not all “dot” releases of NX8
will be supported.
• There will be no new Windows XP related hardware certification
starting with NX8 and therefore it is recommended customer move
to Windows 7 64-bit.
Q1: Which version of NX will be the last to support WXP?
A1: NX 8 is the last version to support WXP but this support is
conditional since Windows XP is at its logical end of life.
Q2: Why is support conditional?
A2: Mainstream Microsoft support for Windows XP actually ended in
April 2009 so even today there is limited ability to provide
fixes to Windows XP. There are many issues supporting an
operating system that has reached its EOL including the ability to
get support from 3rd party vendors. Since SPLM has no control
over these vendors, our ability to get fixes, updates and most
importantly drivers is a serious concern.
Q3: Is there any chance of also getting NX 9 to be supported with
Q4: Why will we not support 32-bit NX on Windows 7?
A4: The requirements of Windows 7, as well as high-end applications
like NX, dictate 64-bits. The recommendation today for Windows 7
and NX7.5 is 6GB.
Q5: What changed in Windows 7 that required so much more memory?
A5: It is difficult to discuss the differences in this document but it
has been well documented that Windows 7 requires considerable more
resources (disk, memory and processor).
Q6: I heard that 64-bits has problems and is not reliable.
A6: When Windows XP 64-bit first came out years ago, there were some
problems but they have been resolved long ago. SPLM would
not move our development environment to Windows 7 64-bit if we
had any reservations on its performance or quality.
Q7: I understand that running on 64-bit OS is slower compared to
A7: What will be slow is running NX on a 32-bit system that is under
configured with too little memory. The memory limitation on
32-bits is 4GB with applications only able to address
Q8: Why is Vista not supported anymore?
A8: Although Vista and W7 started with the same kernel, there are
differences and the future is W7. Therefore, SPLM is no longer
testing or certifying versions of NX on Vista.
Q9: What happens if I decide to run NX8 on Vista, will I be supported?
A9: SPLM expects Vista will work and you may never have any problems
but there is always some risk. NX8 issues will be tested on
Windows 7 systems. If there is a failure running Vista that
cannot be duplicated on Windows 7 it will then be assumed the
problem is Vista related and may not be fixed.
Q10: What happens if I decide to run NX8 on WXP, how will I be
A10: SPLM has tested Windows XP as part of the normal development
release cycle just as Windows 7 is tested, but there is always
a risk that problems may develop that cannot be fixed.
Q11: Why might Windows XP bugs not be fixed?
A11: As noted before, Microsoft mainstream support actually ended in
April of 2009. Many 3rd party vendors have begun to drop support
and SPLM may not be able to get access to fixes, updates or
driver needed to fix bugs. Hardware vendors can no longer
provide WXP as part of their systems and in time, it will become
difficult if not impossible to get proper drivers.
Q12: Will WXP be support throughout the life of NX8?
A12: Since an NX product release cycle normally covers several years
there is no way to guarantee that SPLM will be able to support
throughout the entire cycle.
Q13: Why is SPLM no longer certifying hardware on Windows XP?
A13: As of October 2010 Windows XP cannot be purchased anymore. In
addition, there are no retail sales and hardware vendors cannot
pre-install Windows XP. Vendors may or may not provide drivers
for new hardware so any installation of Windows XP on new hardware
would require a custom installation. Without a standard Vendor
provided and supported installation, certification is impossible.
Durante una attività ho appena verificato che una parte non si rigenerava su WXP 32...
Messa su W7 64 era OK.
Risposta della R&D: E' un problema di fault su un double che fisseremo... usate W7 64.
