Is the OLE (Offline editor) for just XP or both OSs?

Only XP at this time. Vista is a different dog (or dawg :evil: - really)

And from what we've seen Vista has a variety of screen refresh issues.
Supposedly some may be addressed with the upcoming service pack 1 for Vista.

So far a public release specifically targeted for VIsta is a bit premature.

Here are some of the problems I've experienced in Vista testing:

1) Extremely lazy screen refresh, especially in the cue list / look page sections
2) Panel Driver incompatibility
3) Sudden unexplainable F-Key problems ( They just stop working! Not good in a softkey driven desk!)

In simple beta testing these have not caused a problem, but I fear that there may be more issues that we simply haven't noticed. Vista SP1 and considerably more testing is in order before we can truly trust the application on a Vista host.

I'm anxiously awaiting SP1, and am hoping Microsoft will have a lot of these issues sorted out.

I hope vista users out there will understand!

FYI: I'm a Vista user 100% of the time, but I rely heavily on XP (Virtualized) and my trusty Classic Palette processor running XPE.
