hi to all..im a version 6 user, i've only had the program a few weeks , but i do love it..much easier to use than Lightroom..but seeing all the bugs in version 7...is it worth the pain now..or should I wait a while until the guys at phase one have released a .1 version with bug fixes.. i've been using the trial of version 7 and so far I love the extra features . and for me they are worth the 69 euro...but i dont like buggy software too much..

I had a look over at the Mac forum..thinking they might not have as many dramas as the Windows crowd..but seems they do :(

one other question of the capture pilot..is there a way to direct link a web browser device..or do they need a internet connection to see the HTTP address that the server uses

cheers guys

Yes, I had zero problems

You cab run both at the same time, as you seems to do.
Use v7 and see if you have problems.

What seems to be the most common issue is, which card works best with OpenCL or OpenCL compatibility.

Ditto about the video card compatibility issues. To complicate it Phase One released a compatible video card list that has cards on it that are not compatible. They had my GeForce 9800 1GB ram card on it and I was having a lot of problems. Upgraded to a GTX 560 with 2 GB ram and all the problems I was having were gone. (There still may be problems, but not with the features I have used so far)

Dell doesn't provide drivers for the video card. Nvidia does for yours.
