Just about to order X2 when I noticed that the system requirements state Windows 7 or 8, but no mention of Vista. Can anybody let me know whether X2 will actually work with Vista, because if not I won't be upgrading till I upgrade my hardware.
I am with you on not upgrading the O/S until I get new hardware. That will probably be next year and I will go straight to Windows 8 unless it turns out to be a complete turkey.
I can't see the point in upgrading to Win 7 so close to the release of Windows 8.
There is another thread somewhere where some one from Cakewalk said X2 was not tested on Vista, it would probably work but if there were problems you were on your own. Pretty much the same stance as Native Instruments.
I suspect it will work fine, for all the anti-Vista rhetoric Windows 7 is not that different from Vista SP2. I use both, but my DAW is Vista SP2 (64 bit). I look at Win 7 like Vista service pack 3, rebranded to get some upgrade fees and because Microsoft knew if they did not drop the Vista name they would never ween people off XP.
Other Windows 7 only Products.
Native Instruments Komplete 8 - Window 7 only, but works perfectly well on Vista (and even XP by all accounts)
FX Expansion ECO (64 Bit) - Windows 7 only, but its only the installer that has any issues in Vista. Manually extract the 64 Bit DLL and it is good to go.
