My suggestions is that OS must be reinstalled from scratch minimum once in 6-8
months (maximum 10-12) With those words I mean - its easy to reinstall your OSand
try again to install ProE...... but much of people will disagree with me -
Those words worked very fine for me, and if something don
Speling... as easy as it should be to re-install or upgrade.. i work for a company which makes everything almost impossible.. down to the simplest of tasks.. i have begged to be upgraded to xp but with no luck.. i have turned the office inside out trying to find the nt disc which was supplied with this pc, but they have lost it..
I work for a massive company but unfortunatly thier methods are backwards to say the least...
I am even at the point where it is soo old that my cd writer no longer works.. its depressing.. but everytime they say they will update me.. they change thier minds last minute..
The error code gives a clear hint : it's all about long filenames. NT originally dates from the times where 8.3 names were common, so it's no wonder it gives problems with new programs. The fact that it is 32-bit doesn't change anything to that. You might have problems with Unicode text also. Don't know how much of that is in ProE, but it's not standard in NT either. In my opinion you should at least have Win2K to run present-day programs reliably.
I'm not an "early innovator" myself, but at a given moment anyone should decide on moving on to a proven reliable OS.
I "inherited" a computer with NT4 when I started freelance business in 2000, but when I crashed in 2002 I found out that I had no official OS. Even back then the only thing I could get in the shop was Win2K. If I am correctly informed today you can't even buy that anymore and are forced to go for WinXP. So when you are still working NT you surely are out of bounds (and out of support for that matter).
And as an extra I can assure you that Win2K is more stable than any version of NT and also easier to manage. More wizzards, more added administration tools and still the possibility to "finetune the engineunder the hood".
