I occasionally open up older versions of PreForm for a walk down memory lane. It’s incredible how much has changed in just a few years.


#3

Yes Craig, the software changed so much. Like a baby that is growing up. I don’t know if this post will be usefull to the “formers” here, but I think that I would like to take care this thread and update it with newer versions. Like drawing the lines on a wall of the growing steps that show how change heigh the “baby”, through the months :wink:

Best regards,
Mattia

Are there any dates to these older versions? I wish I still kept mine :\


#5

Hello Edward,
I’ve tried to get the dates, but please thake them as approx. references, because these are the dates when I’ve stored the .exe files. But I hope this will help to have an idea about the periods.

Best regards,
Mattia

That’s great! Cheers :slight_smile:

Preform 2.10 not starting
#8

Hi Mattia,
Thanks for your work here. I absent mindedly updated from Preform 2.9 to 2.10 today and found the new version won’t run on my PC (2-year old Win7 machine). Luckily I still had the download file for 2.9 so I could revert to the old version of Preform. You are doing everyone a favor here. Thanks!

Was that 2.10 or 2.10.1? Version 2.10 hit a bug in a couple of versions of Intel’s graphics drivers for Windows 7. We released the 2.10.1 version with a workaround for that issue. So if you hit that problem with 2.10, you should try upgrading to 2.10.1.

If you saw the issue with 2.10.1, then I’d really like more details.

Sorry we didn’t catch this one before shipping 2.10, but the particular combination of Intel graphics chips and drivers that had the bug is actually pretty rare.

Hello Andy,
Glad to be usefull. I’ve added to the last list the latest releases. I’ve missed the 2.10.1, but already have the 2.10.2 that solve the graphic cards issues and works for the new matte grey resin (v03), too.
Best regards,
Mattia
