Evening all, pretty much as the title says,
Have a Vista PC (New - but plotted before?)
Finecut 7 Plugin for Illustrator CS3
Mimaki CG60SR

The plotter is recognised in Illustrator, the driver is up to date and comp w/ Vista.

When i goto plot>It attempts to plot, feeds the vinyl and then an error pops up to say
"An Unexpected Error Occured"
Anybody seen this problem before? Know the solution? It's really affecting my drinking time.... :(

When you say it has plotted before I assume you mean running vista.
First thing I would do is make sure the driver is not corrupt in any way. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.

its an issue that they are still working out. FineCut 7 on Vista with CS2 works fine. FineCut 7 on Vista with CS3 has issues. FineCut 7 on XP with CS3 works fine. thats the problems they are trying to sort out. I am sure its going to come down to some silly DLL problem. I remember the same problem happened when XP came out and Mimaki started to have problems with Onyx CUT Server.

I would stick with XP for the time being anyway. Wait until vista version 3 to allow Microsoft to sort out some of the bugs. Personally I don't think vista is anything to write home about but thats obviously only my opinion.

Definitely stick to XP for the time being especially with all the new versions of software being released at the moment. Upgrading production equipment should be done with caution and should be tested before jumping into. Vista is still mess when it comes to sorting out bugs especially in proprietary software programs such as Flexi, Signlab, FineCut etc...they are not Adobe so fixes are going to come at a slower rate...unfortunately.

I would have to agree massively here, Vista is appalling. Unfortunately,
I have just spent £3k on a machine which came with Vista. It won't accept XP, with me doing it anyway, and as for Dell support, well, i'll use the term "Vista". Say no more.... :roll:

If you have only just bought it I would take it back and tell them that as it stands it is of no use to you as none of the programs you use for your business are compatible with vista and you would either like a refund or XP installed on it so you can use it.

Yep, it looks like FineCut 7 only goes up to CS2.

If you look here:-

under application condition header, it only goes up to CS2.

Cheers,
Jamie.

Afraid I wouldn't know Finecut if it bit me on the backside - but I have had compatibility problems with other software having ended up with a Vista machine after the theft of my laptop.

You can change the programme to be compatible as if it were an XP machine by going to the explore menu, and finding the executable file. Right click, then click the compatibility tab, and click to make compatible with XP service pack 2. Would warn that seems to work with some programmes but not others - not sure if you will be lucky. Even if you can get it to work, there are still sometimes other quirks that may become apparent.

Not sure if any help, but worth a try I guess.

Just an update. Finecut w CS3 & Vista are working in perfect harmony. No idea why, so it's still useless to anyone else requiring the same ifnfo. I assume an update somewhere has sorted it out from either Adobe's side or Windows??
Don't know how, all i know is it's working :)
:D

hi market drayton

microsoft do a virtual operating system for vista which runs xp within vista if you get what i mean. they made this because of all the hardware and software which wont run on vista. im told it is free from their website, this may help your problem.

Hi Steve, it started off not working whatsoever, but recently it's become friends so to speak with no input from me!

That's a relief though as no end of people i talk to hate vista....for the reason mentioned with peripherals.
I'll check it out,
Cheers,
Craig

Hello Guys
I'm a very wet behind the ears, newbie to this cutter plotter game, more used to photography and dye sublimation. However, I use Vista Ultimate on a home built computer (with bags of grunt), CS3 and finecut, and have had no problems (YET!!).
Best wishes
Phil
