Has there been any talk yet about how the free to Windows 10 may affect TurboCAD users?  I'm hoping that TC 18 can still run on the new OS (I'm currently using Windows 7 Pro 64).

I've not seen anything posted, v18 is not that old so I wouldn't think there would be any problem running it on Windows 10, I guess really only time will tell unless someone has been beta testing it.

I wonder if cortana will finish a drawing when I'm tired  ;D

As I understand it Windows 10 will be more like an upgrade than the usual OS installation, that is they say you won't lose files or programs, but I think I'll let someone else try it first . . .
You can click on the Get Windows 10 app icon in your task bar and it will scan your rig for potential problems. As it is still in development a problem it lists today may be solved next week. I have seen this happen on my computer already where it listed two drivers as incompatible originally, but now says Zero Known Problems.

Was wondering the same thing myself the other night whilst checking out the Windows 10 free offer. Although I'm on 32 bit version and probably need to upgrade to 64 bit for better CAD performance.

Still......interested to see how it would go, just don't think my current system would cope with it, considering it already struggles with the occasional crash. But you never know.....

Is there a page somewhere that we can find out which versions of TurboCAD will continue to work with Windows 10? I have TC-16, and feel no need to upgrade my CAD software. I'd hate to lose TurboCAD in an OS upgrade.

Hi,

I have been using TC versions 16-22 for a few weeks now, with 64-bit Win 10 OS installed.
I have not noticed any particular problems, so far, which might be due to the new OS.
Problems, yes, but not running IMSI TurboCAD products.   :)

I hope this helps.

Regards Tim

All versions of TurboCAD that run correctly on Windows 8.1 (v20 and above) should also run correctly on Windows 10.

After installing the Windows 10 upgrade(?), update(?) TC crashed repeatedly for even the simplest tasks. I ran a reinstall/repair of TC, but it did not help. After running compatibility mode testing there still was no improvement. When the troubleshooter finally asked if this program had run well under another version, I selected Windows 8.1. Since then TC has run well. My computer is only a couple months old, and is Windows 10 compatible.

Yes i know :), thats why i wrote the build number
I'm sort of lazy, after using several hours yesterday to re-arange/ safety copy etc and download/ install win 10 i dont want to set TC up on build 30.1
And i will not change my stationary machine before i have tested a month or so with win 10, that machine have work going back more than 20 years, my life so to speak.

The only issue i have with win 10 is that i "think" it is a bit slower then win 8.1, but the rest seems OK, and the menu's even i like :)

Not very helpful I'm afraid.  Still get the same response; select a drawing file, click open and the program closes.

So might try going back to win 7 for now until I have time to futz with it.

Don't know about 32 but it does it on 64bit.

Went to restore to Win 7 and it REALLY screwed up the computer.  Can't get to my desktop, just a blank screen after the log in page.  Won't restore because it wiped out all my restore points.  No help on the system tools (startup repair, system restore, etc) from either the hard drive or the installation for Win7 disk.  Keep getting an error saying Microsoft office 14 failed to extract a file from the system restore function.  Unspecified error 0x80070017.  Goggled and no help there.

Windows 10 Beta to final and TurboCad 22 ~ 2015 All ran without issues.
NOTE:
If your machine has an IDE (ATA buss) DVD/CD Windows 10 will not be able to make a repair disk (Three machines, same error until I replaced the IDE/ATA DVD/CD drives with SATA DVD/CD drives). Windows 10 DOES NOT continue a backup that was built in the previous OS, you must create a new image and backup after 'upgrading'.

Just installed Windows 10 and TC 2015 Pro (build 40.5) on new 64 bit system. Noticed my mouse wheel doesn't work like used to, now shrinks window down instead of moving camera, obviously have to set it up for TC. Got a message about Nvidea graphics card not supported by Windows 10, thought I got a screen shot to post but apparently not. Message hasn't come up since but will try and save if does. Might check out my Nvidea card driver to see what's going on with it. Otherwise all good so far. Will keep you posted.

Got it. Screen shot of Nvidea graphics message attached.

I have been using TC v15 Pro for some years.  As it does all that I need, I have never felt the urge to update it.  Since I installed Windows 10, I have had some glitches from the program.  (I also use another CAD program for 3D modelling, which has had no issues.)  The main annoyance was the loss of 'cut and paste', which is such a fundamental process in CAD drawing.  Whenever copy was attempted, I receive an error message that the file was probably corrupt with the option to continue or abandon.  When I try to paste the entities into a new position the program crashes.   Latterly, on booting the program, all the toolbars except the main menu have disappeared and are no longer listed on the View/Toolbars command.  Talking to the UK agent brought the offer of a discounted upgrade at a price higher than I was prepared to pay.

I have now reverted to Windows 7 and TC once more runs exactly as I want it.

Hhmmm... my TC Pro Platinum V15 just stopped opening on my Win7Pro 32-bit system, after having worked for years.  Complete uninstalls and re-installs did not restore functionality.  As your setup is still working, it was most likely a hardware failure on my old system.

I upgraded to V21 when I built a new 64-bit system last year.

I usually run TC ver 18.1 on Windows 7, so from this thread I get upgrading to Windows 10 is NOT recommended? I do have TC 19, but I'm not buying another upgrade just to find out that it too is buggy on a new OS version.

Took long enough and too much $$ to find a relatively stable match at 18.1 and Windows 7.

Pretty sad ...

My TC 2015 Pro Platinum is stable on Win7 Pro (although I am still annoyed that the 32-bit and 64-bit versions have undocumented differences (except for maybe here in the forums) in how some functions work, but I expect that was still the case with V18.

It would be really, really nice if software developers sat back for a time and de-glitched their cores rather than this constant effort to offer the latest and greatest.

This seems more and more to be the latest bells and whistles over a less than perfect core, with the core increasingly compromised.

I know Linux is Freeware but they have, to some extent, woken up to this and now offer distros with long term support rather than annual up???grades.

Regrettably OS upgrades seem to be more about invading ones home computer and gathering personal information than they do about functionality.

Some good news (for a change). Just managed to get Nvidia GeForce Experience (downloaded & reinstalled) to work and finally managed to updated my GeForce 930M driver to 355.98 and it seems to have fixed my issues with TC 2015. Now advanced renders a lot faster. I can move around in quality render mode with no stagger or issues and no more messages about graphic card not supported. Happy days. Hopefully it stays this way & maybe one day I'll manage to draw something worth posting.

Far as I know the only prolems with Win 10 is the KBUpdate a couple weeks back that stopped a bunch of stuff from working, including other complex programs too, like TC. MS released an update that caused all this and there are even instructions on the site about how to remove th Update, which they recommend.
    No rush to switch if you don't want to since Win 7 support will last until 2020 so there's plenty of time.
   And, you also have a month to remove the upgrade if you want to. To avoid their long waits, download  but theISO version (well over a Gig of data) and install that. I have one machine with the ISO update and two with the free version of Win 10 Pro. All are the same land work the same and have the same problems etc. of Win 7 and 8. The updates will automatically roll you back to your previous OS version at the touch of a couple keyclicks.   Personally I think 10 is worth the effort but it still has all the typical MS BS in it that there always is from them. The first thing you'll notice is that a LOT of programs won't work and will be removed when you install 10, including Media Center, most NOrton programs and Symantec System Recovery, most scanners won't work with it, and several laser printers are uninstalled during the upgrade. So YMMV depending on what programs and applications you run.  I bought a new scanner (cheap) and got a great deal on a Dell C2660dn Printer for like a third the price of equivalents at HP, Epson and other reputable printers around. I am big on Open Source apps and most of the things 10 trashed software wise I have replaced resonably witn open source programs; namely Libre Office instead of the single-source crap of Microsoft's suites of programs.  The only two things I haven't replaced are WinPatrol and a replacement for MS's system controls.  Multicommander and FreeCommander are all I've found for replacements and they're OK but not as intuitive to use.  So don't think the love-hate relationship with MS is over: Nothing has changed that way; they still suck BUT OTOH 10 is actually, finally, much more reliable and a lot faster than 8 or 7. All in all I'm going to stick with it; it is the best OS around by far.  In 3+ months I have never had a freeze-up or hang with 10, something that can't be said for 7 & 8.

Faster hasn't been my experience. Startup times for my laptop went from 15-30 seconds in Windows 8.1 to 3-5+ minutes for Windows 10. I won't update the other computers until Micro$oft releases reliable software.

Faster hasn't been my experience. Startup times for my laptop went from 15-30 seconds in Windows 8.1 to 3-5+ minutes for Windows 10. I won't update the other computers until Micro$oft releases reliable software.

There is something "strange" about boot times in 10, but they aren't slower. But settings etc. can change things, so I'm sure it's a ymmv situation.
   I have 3 machines here running Win 10.  Every one of them does a cold start in almost exactly 60 Seconds, with all startups etc. loaded and ready to run. However, doing a Restart on any of the machines is much, much slower even when you remove the time for the shut-down part of a Restart. The times are 2 Min, a tad over 3 on the next one, and the same for the third. Two of the machines have complex and cpu intensive programs that they can run but they don't start in the background; only on demand.
   It's interesting how a cold boot takes precisely one minute to start up on all 3 machines. But for a Restart, measuring only the starting time, not the shutdown, which in itself can be fairly long, the re-starting parts take almost 4 times as long to start compared to starting from scratch at power-off.
   I almost never use Restart anymore should I want to restart the machines. I just click ShutDown and after it does, tap the power button again and I'm right back up and running a lot quicker than if I had done a Restart. I've checked around with several other people here and it seems to be the same for them too, so I doubt I have anything unique happening.  Check it out for yourself and see if it's the same for you. I'll bet it is.  Perhaps it'll help you too.

I am a humble user of Windows and have been since Windows 3. As a user and over the various flavours of the OS..............Restart is probably one of the worst time wasting and unreliable things MS came up with. IMHO much better and safer to shut down, wait 30 secs, then boot.

As for Windows 10, bells and whistles combine with a large dose of privacy invasion, not to mention poor software integration, suggest to me that I won't be up???grading period.

As far as I can tell my Norton 360 is working fine, my printers print ok (even my 15 yr old Brother MFC) and all my programs are working on Windows 10 (he says with fingers crossed). Admittedly I had to use Nortons eraser program to a fix few issues with installing on new system but Norton has always been a pain with subscription issues and old versions causing trouble. I do have a new computer which is optimised for Windows 10 so that may help. Have noticed importing media is a pain in that you can't import to a specific folder anymore. Now saves by date folders only in pictures library. I also just went 2 weeks with no internet due to lightning strike taking out my landline (and my router). So if you are worried about your privacy, I guess you could just disconnect the internet and use it like I have been for the last 2 weeks - offline. Still works fine just no online shit. Amazing how much work you can get done when not distracted by internet. Also have to admit, some of the Xbox games you get free access too on Windows 10 are pretty cool. I had to give my updated Nvidia card and new router a workout somehow, although the productivity levels are down again. But ya get that.

Wow, step up in forum software :-) So I've got a Microsoft Surface Book headed my way, its got a gorgeous screen and a pen for input (in addition to the keyboard) and it runs Win10. I'm wondering if my TC21Plat will run on it. But more importantly I'm wondering if there is pen support in TC2015 that would warrant upgrading.

You can rewind to the previous operating system.  Maybe you should do that, copy your data files elsewhere and try again.

Thanks for the heads up, though.

I just purchased a Quadro and found out that REDSDK does NOT support the driver! The driver they support is 340.84 released on 2014.9.23, Current driver is 354.56 released 2015.12.9 with Windows 10 support.

A quick check shows REDSDK has no driver support for Quattro M series or any of the M or K series 5200, 4200, 2200 cards

Maybe someone could let REDSDK there is a new version of Windows?

I did Google down a 340.84 driver for Windows 7x64 but it has been my experience with my existing Nvidia SLI cards that the driver REDSDK says works doesn't always.

I forget the name (and I'm replying from my phone), but I remember someone here posting about his 2200 (if I remember correctly) and how he is quite happy with it.

Try to search for the posts where he talks about it and see if he responds to a private message.

Be Aware, there are 3 hidden files in Windows 10 that stop working after the 30 day trial. Now you're stuck with v10.

Antique here. Retired, using pro 14 and just upgraded to win10. Unable to open tcw files, reinstall tp14 and able to open a few more files. I've chosen to save what I can to dwg so I hope I can access no matter what.

I just got a turbocad 2015 deluxe 2d/3d and have a new laptop upgraded to windows 10. I still have not installed it yet, any thoughts if they work?

If you have not purchased the lightworks plug-in with 2015, then the main issue with 2015 and windows 10 would be if the graphics card / adaptor is compatible with RedSdk, though the actual program will (should) still work even if its not,  you can check out the graphics card here (I didn't do any extensive render tests with my incompatible card, just tried the program itself).

Whilst a few people have had problems, I think the majority who post here are fine using 2015 with windows 10.

The best thing you can do is:

Make a system image of your current OS before you Up?grade to Windows 10 if you really think you need/want the new bloatware spyware ridden offering.

Absolutely the best way to go for this sort of thing.

6 months late, but just in case, because I don't find the topic mentioned anywhere...

Micro$oft sometimes adds rever$e logic to the process:  bootup settings in 8- forward include something called 'fastboot', the effects of which I'm seeing along this thread.

One google quote is short and to the point:

". . . shutdown / bootup in Windows 8 and newer are by default not real shutdowns and bootups, but rather a hybrid "log off and hibernate" kind of thing.  What most folks don't realize . . . is that the Hybrid/Fast Boot logic can cause problems.  For one thing some parts of the system are not freshly restarted, and for another it's (possible) the file system (can) actually be left in a dirty state."

So, this refers to the process of using 'Shutdown' and then restarting, which it doesn't.  It keeps part of your previous kernel session on tap while it recycles other overhead, and it goes fairly quickly if '/fastboot' is on.  It's apples and oranges to the 'Restart' choice, which is now actually the closest to a full down cycle, and therefore quite a bit slower as this thread points out.

Of course, in 7 and previous we were trained to use 'restart' to get back onboard sooner.  Shutdown meant shutdown, and restart never went cold .... sort of the opposite.

My only guess at the MS logic is that most people typically do a 'shutdown' and go to bed.  Then in the morning they 'boot up' and, since it seems to go really quickly, they can conclude the newer OS must be much fa$ter than the old.  Cold-cycling reveals the true footprint of that boot.

To be fair, we understand most of the time the OS keeps everything in order, on balance.  But obviously, it can give your troubleshoot a quick boot.  That preserved kernel session may have driver pointers that are honored according to its previous hardware enumeration.  And then there's Superfetch, by which the OS keeps parts of your most-used programs in RAM, even through a 'warm reboot' (even in win7 [even Prefetcher in XP]).  I'm sure many know this.  The issue is, where is the cold boot, really?

I'm no expert. These things google well, so vet this if it seems useful.  I just want to raise a flag here where troubleshoot happens -especially re vid drivers, because I haven't found any mention and I see threads about doing a cold boot that wouldn't be.  And BTW, for a really complete blankout . . .  you have to disable fastboot, shut down, pull the plug (and battery), and then hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds to bleed it dry.  Only then can you know you've done your best to not track something in on the bottom of your boot. :-[

Best regards,
Lee G
