Hi Sabki,

VISION version 4 runs under Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8, including both 32 and 64 bit OS.

As you may know, FOSS NIRSytems became Metrohm NIRSystems last year.
Then, you can contact the Metrohm subsidiaries or distributor to know yow proceed.

Let me know if you have the least issue to get a contact.
I could put you in touch with the right person. I just need to know which country you're from in that case.

Hi Sabki,

Sorry for this late reply.
The new version of VISION is “Metrohmised”, is compatible with the news Windows OS and includes by default the “Cascading Library” tool (very useful for identification method when there are many products to discriminate).

if need be, you can contact the Metrohm local distributor in Indonesia :

Version 3.6 of Vision I'm told works with Windows 7.

I also have Version 3.5

I believe that the older version works on Windows 7 if you run the 32 bit version of the OS.

Older software that doesn't know how to install correctly on a 64 bit version of Windows becomes problematic.
