Jitter applications built running Vista vs. XP

Mar 04 2008 | 1:32 pm

Hi folks,

I’m planning on buying a copy of the cheapo-home edition of either Windows Vista or XP for a new iMac (OS10.5.x) for the sole purpose of using it to build PC applications of some MaxMSP+Jitter patches. Does anyone have any experience and/or advise on weather a Jitter application built running Vista will work well on XP or one built running on XP will run well on Vista? I haven’t been using Windows for a couple years now (nor missed it).

Thanks for any advice,

I’ve had problems getting my large patches and standalones running on Vista that work fine on XP, and haven’t had the time to really find out why. So, I wish I could be more specific, but, it in summary, if you have complexity, you’re going to spend some time…

Thanks pnyboer,

That’s specific enough to save me many hours on the attempt. Perhaps I’ll stick with the OXS/XP versions for now.
