Question about Cakewalk Pyro Audio Creator - Windows CD for PC (10-cwac1.00-10c)
Posted by Anonymous on
Yes, but it may be more expensive then buying the new Cakewalk pyro Audio Creator 1.5 ($40). The cost will depend on your version of Windows 7 among other issues.
From the Cakewalk site: "pyro 5 and the other versions listed above will not launch properly under Windows 7. They will not function at all."
The work-around is to run the software such that it thinks you are using an older version of Windows. There are a two ways to do this with one computer: 1) run a dual boot system with Window 7 and an older version of windows, 2) run a virtual computer with an older version of Windows inside the Windows 7 system using Parallels, VMWare or Virtual PC.
In most cases for either option, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can get the virtual computer with XP for free. Download Microsoft's Virtual PC and then the XP mode package. Install them in order and install your Cakewalk software to the XP computer as if that is the only computer. The only issues can come up is that peripherals (like printers) can't be installed on both the real and the virtual computer and sharing files has to be done by saving to optical or other external media.
I'm not sure how much of a learning curve would be involved but there is a free audio editor available. See http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ for more information - the Win7 version is still in beta but works.
I hope this helps.

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.
Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.
