Default Re: Pro Tools 10 on Windows 8??

Well, I tried PT10 on my Win7 (prof) 64 Bits Bootcamp and its works quite well. The idea was, that I'd maybe waste money when I buy a Win7 ultimate instead of Win8.

It's one of the privileges needed that the PT 10 installer doesn't include at this time.

You can get W7/W8 64-bit running on a Mac Pro 1,1 but you'll have to create a custom install disk. Not a massive or difficult procedure, but definitely an advanced step if you've never done it before.

could you tell me, is this required with PT11.0.1 as well? With this change does a guy still have to run in W7 compatibility mode during setup?

No it is not required. PT11 installs normally and works fantastic on Windows 8. I have both PT10 and 11 installed and I must say 11 is so much better to work with on Windows 8.
