    So Gary can you fix the current version of GS?
    It won't work if you install it on a XPS3 machine.

    Nobody is fixing anything. There is no official support for current Giga users. I suggest you read the FAQ.

    Well, I guess I jumped the gun there thinking that the acquisition would be of benefit to existing users of Gigastudio. My thought was about existing licenses and being able to move them to other machines, etc.

    I just assumed this would be addressed, but it doesn't look like it, since the FAQ's say there WON'T be support for existing users.
