X7 Availability For Ssa Users

Recommended Posts

Thanks Brian I'll check again but have not seen that option yet.....

 

being an upgrade , does that mean I wont have X6 as well ? ie side by side with the beta?

You can keep X6 also with X7 Just keep the install file for X6 just in case you need to reinstall later b/c installing X7 will delete your X6 download from your locker.

Ok Thanks for the explanation P. much appreciated , didn't realise the X6 download would no longer be in there too.

 

Time for that GTX970 upgrade I am guessing....the old 470 is getting a bit tired :)

 

Edit : it is finally there......

Okay,  I'm on,  nobody said I had to follow directions to get on.  I wonder if they get tired of us nitwits out here.

I was talking to a couple of the CA people at IBS/KBIS in Las Vegas this morning.  I can assure you that there were som choice words used about you.  :D

I refuse to tell you who I was talking to or anything about Chief's development plans for the coming year. :P

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.  :wacko:

They do have lib changes. Just update your catalogs

 

I guess my concern is what libs do I need to export from X6 because they're missing in X7.  Aw heck, I'll just bite the bullet and install the new stuff.

Rosco (and others) - I am having the same problem.  I have not done it 8 times though, only 3 so far.

Looks like this is the first BUG in X7.  ;o(  PITA!!!

 

 

Part II - I have found the enemy and it is ME!  copied an S as a 5. 

             I am going to the flogging room and will wear a hair shirt for

             the rest of the day!  What a dummy..........

Dennis I copied my X6 profile plan and pasted it in X7 so that I still have a copy in X6

I use copy/paste to enter the CD Key so that my lack of precise typing skills doesn't come into play. I also copied it and sent it to myself in an e-mail so that I wouldn't lose it. Also did the same with the old key.

SSA is active to Feb 1

 

I should be able to get the beta now

and if I don't renew SSA then it should cease to work

 

I plan to renew SSA - just as I have always done

 

been busy with a dog having seizures and my own surgeries etc :(

 

if X7 goes live before Feb 1 I should get it as part of SSA

Lew I don't think you will get it since the official release is not til sometime in march I think, mine was do feb 1 and I didn't get it until I upgraded my SSA and was told that it was my ssa was not up to date for the official release I will have to try and find the post about that

Ray:

 

If that is the case - I am NOT happy

 

I have been a STRONG supporter of SSA since it was introduced

 

I fully planned to renew before Feb 1

 

If CA is taking this stance then I will NOT renew

 

I'm barely using Chief as it is

I have plans to continue using it for my preservation projects

 

but I can do so just as easy with X6

 

When SSA came out just about everyone had a Feb 1 date

so this applies to many, many users

Ray is correct there was something that I saw that if SSA expired prior to March 15? X7 would not be available.

You wont miss anything that is in X7 or should I say X6.5.
