Propellerhead Announces Windows Vista Compatibility


After extensive testing, Propellerhead Software have announced that all Propellerhead software products are now fully compatible with Windows Vista. All applications comply to Microsoft's "Works with Windows Vista" guidelines, as described below in Propellerhead's own words...
Reason 3.0.4.
Users of Reason 3.0.4 (without ReWire) can safely upgrade to Windows Vista. Please note the following:
1. Reason will require administrative privileges the first time it is installed and launched in Windows Vista. This is normal and due to the enhanced security features in Vista.
2. Users upgrading from an earlier version of Windows to Windows Vista will need to reauthorize Reason. This requires the original CDs as well as the serial number.
ReCycle 2.1
Users of ReCycle 2.1 can safely upgrade to Windows Vista. Please note the following:
1. ReCycle will require administrative privileges the first time it is installed and launched in Windows Vista. This is normal and due to the enhanced security features in Vista.
2. Users upgrading from an earlier version of Windows to Windows Vista will need to reauthorize ReCycle. This requires the original CD as well as the serial number.
Reload 1.0.1
Users of Reload 1.0.1 can safely upgrade to Windows Vista. Please note the following:
1. Reload will require administrative privileges the first time it is installed and launched in Windows Vista. This is normal and due to the enhanced security features in Vista.
2. Users upgrading from an earlier version of Windows to Windows Vista will need to reauthorize Reload. This requires from the users to have their serial number.
ReWire and Rex
ReWire and Rex are also compatible with Windows Vista. However, as a result of the enhanced security features in Windows Vista, the way ReWire and Rex need to be installed has changed. Propellerhead has created a special Installer of ReWire and Rex for Vista users. This installer can be downloaded from the propellerheads website.
Hardware Note
Remember that a music system does not consist of software alone. The users should be aware that they may need to update the installation of their audio hardware, keyboard controller or other controller when upgrading to Windows Vista. Propellerheads strongly recommends that users consult the hardware manufacturer for more information about Vista compatibility, before upgrading the operating system.
