A couple of years ago, we acquired the scia software volume 5 2003 version 3.5 cd, consisting of a number of packages (ESA prima Win, ESA Beam, ESA Connect, ESA punching, ESA concrete and M-serie software). We have been using this software eversince (on a pc running windows xp).
We now have a pc running Windows Vista and we wanted to install the above mentioned software on this new computer. But it doesn't work. The software doesn't seem to support or find the hardware dongle (connected to the parallel port).
So we decided to check scia-software's website. From browsing through, i'm under the impression that this software doesn't exist anymore (or has been renamed?). Is that correct? And if yes, what is the name of the new package?
In case the software no longer exists, is there still an option to run the software on windows vista? Has there been updates to support the newer windows versions? And if not, what are the upgrade options for existing customers in a case like that.
Any help would be much appreciated since we are hoping to continue using this software.
