PV-WAVE version 9.0 has been tested on the Microsoft Vista 32-bit platforms. Testing on this platform has shown intermittent segmentation violations when running PV-WAVE Widgets and using the default Vista Visual Effects. Changing the Visual Effects to 'best performance' eliminates the seg faults.

To check/change the Visual Effects settings on Window Vista:
Open the System->Properties.
Select ?Advanced system settings?.
Select the 'Advanced' tab.
Select the 'Settings' button under 'Performance'
Select the ?Visual Effects? tab.
To turn the Visual Effects off, select 'Adjust for best performance'.

The Microsoft Vista 64-bit version has not been tested yet and is not currently supported for the PV-WAVE 9.0 release.

I have successfully installed PVWAVE 9.0 on a Vista 64 machine. I've also just successfully installed the license, but I have a uncounted license that does not actually require running the Flexlm Manager.

Playing with DEMO everything seemed to work fine.
