i meant vista

Windows 7 and Windows 8

Since it says Windows 7 or Windows 8 on the specifications, I would suggest that you contact Native Instruments first to confirm. Some apps are backwards compatible with Vista given that you meet the hardware requirements, but its best to be sure.

something else

I actually downloaded the demo and it worked on my windows xp laptop, does that mean the full version will work too?

i dont understand?

According to the requirements above it says that it requires windows xp but on the official website it says that it needs windows 7 or 8?


Thanks for bringing this to our attention, it looks like we haven't updated this listing for quite some time. The updated information on the manufacturer's website is correct.
