I have just bought a new Dell Optiplex touch screen and windows 8, I have downloaded and setup Progecad 2013 and registered. The problem is the program hangs before finishing loading, the bar on the loading screen gets to about 75%. Progecad is not responding.
May we ask how long did you wait? The very first time that progeCAD starts up on a newly installed PC, the loading screen will take several seconds longer.
Also be sure that the installation was carried out as full systems admin on target PC, if not you will need to reinstall it correctly as administrator.
If the above hints do not resolve the issue please let us know and we will look at it closer for you.
