So a while back I had posted that Windows 7 was not officially supported for Civil 3D 2010. While we certainly continued to assist customers that were early converts, Windows 7 lacked that, ummm, “official” blessing.
While, some of you may have stumbled across this post in our Discussion Groups from our Sr. Product Manger, which stated:
The Civil 3D team is excited by the interest shown in Windows 7 and on
moving to a 64 bit operating system. We have tested Civil 3D 2010 and
Windows 7 and haven't found any issues that should stop you from deploying
Civil 3D 2010 on it. We are planning to update our website to list Windows 7
as an operating system for Civil 3D.
Windows 7 is one of the operating systems that Civil 3D will be tested on
Could it be? Is this legit? Absolutely! Peter stopped by my desk yesterday to confirm that this is truly official at this point.
So for those of you waiting to jump to Windows 7, now is the time. Just do yourself a favor and make sure you go for the 64-bit version!
