Hello,

I'm trying to install Across on a computer running Windows 7.
When I try to run the Setup.exe file, I get an error message that says "You need a more recent version of Windows in order to use this program"
Looking at computer properties, I see that Service Pack 1 is not installed. Do you think that's what is causing the incompatibility?

I ask because I really dislike installing updates, haven't needed them until now, and wouldn't like to go through the whole trouble and risk of installing SP1 just to discover that it wasn't the problem with Access.

Has anyone had a similar experience?
Thanks a lot,
Rafael

Forget Across, this is the worst CAT tool ever.

SP 1 Jan 29, 2015

Install SP 1, it would make your system more stable.

Across - No, it is not Trados (my CAT-tool by choice), but the new 2014 version is pretty complete for as far as I can see it.

thanks for the insights!
I'll look into it, I'll probably install SP1 after all.

Complicated solution Apr 7, 2015

Hi,
I faced the same problem but fortunately I've found a solution. You need to install a software called Virtualbox, this software allows you to create a virtual pc inside your own pc. You need to create a virtual machine that runs on Windows 8 or 8.1 and install Across v6. This is the only solution if you want to keep using Windows 7. For further information try to look up "Virtualbox".

thanks Capteko for the tip, but I've decided against installing Across altogether for now!
