- Digital simulation works ok,
- schematic capture  ok
- pcb capture works ok
- export to PDF works ok
- export to Excellon works ok
- printing works ok

What does not

In my case, the opengl acceleration has flicker problems. I need to use GDI in order to avoid flickering and redraw latencies.


What was not tested

USB simulation

Additional Comments

I installed it under the same prefix than office 2007. The requirements for office 2007 are the same for proteus. It worked like a charm, even program call between iris and ares. I'm very happy with the speed too.
