With the recent release of Advanced Edition Version 3, a few concerns with the initial acquisition of the Advanced Edition Version 3 license and installation have come to our attention. While these matters will be addressed in a timely fashion, we have compiled a quick "cheat sheet" to remedy these matters in the immediate future.
1. Locating the hardware Compatibility Checker Tool
*Note - You MUST run this prior to purchasing an Advanced Edition Version 3 license to ensure this software will be supported by your machine. The Compatibility Checker Tool is available in the areas listed below:
- https://www.newtek.com/downloads/#tricaster under "Advanced Edition 3" downloads page.
- Reflected in the E-Store prior to adding Advanced Edition 3 to your cart "Update TODAY to TriCaster Advanced Edition 3. Is Your TriCaster Compatible? Check Here"
- Or via direct download link: http://new.tk/AETCXDCheck
2. The Compatibility Checker states your driver version is not supported (Skip this step if error not returned)
Since Advanced Edition 3 requires a more recent Nvidia Driver set, you will need to follow the steps detailed in the article below to update your graphics card drivers:
Run the Compatibility Checker again following the Nvidia Driver update. Should you continue to encounter an error message, please contact our Sales Department via Telephone Monday - Friday from 9:00AM to 6:00PM CST at 1 800-368-5441 or via email at email@example.com to review equipment upgrade options.
