Just tried to download Pro Platinum 2018.

When installing, it shows as version 2017, 32 bit.

What gives?  We are surely way past 32 bit CAD, and a version which is a year older than stated is a bit ott.

Not interested in purchasing an old, 32 bit CAD program.

Just curious.   What is the file name of the file that you downloaded,  also did you download from TurboCAD.com or another site.

I haven't tried the trial version.

You have somehow got the wrong file, 2018 is working good as trial
Some people need 32 bits thats why it is there even if most people use 64 bit i believe.

FIle Name is TurboCAD_Pro_2017_26.3_x86-2.exe

URL is https://www.turbocad.co.uk/windows-range/turbocad-pro-platinum

I have been using 2015 Pro for a while.  Using 64 Bit.
32 bit is too slow (not enough access to memory I guess) - I have 16GB RAM and decent enough Proc and Graphics Card.

I will have a look at the .com site rather than the .co.uk site.

As you probably know, .com is IMSI's own site,  .co.uk is, I believe run by Avanquest, so it may just be bad link on the Avanquest site. 

For Trials I do use IMSI site, and for buying, I tend to get from Paul, and occasionally Avanquest.

Went to the IMSI site and managed to get the correct download.

Just trying things out and see how I go from there.  First impressions don't look any better than the one I have.  Rendering is still pants
