Default Tubecad SE Amp Cad

I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to contact Broskie at Glassware, in order to purchase the Amp Cad/SE Amp cad software. The Yahoo store appears to have broken links for this software and Antique Electronic Supply (the sole distributor) cannot obtain the product. I've sent a number of emails to Tubecad/Glassware in the last month with no response yet, leading me to believe that they are not getting through. Any help/insight on how to obtain this software will be appreciated.

His latest blog entry over at tubecad.com was on Feb 18 and I had tried to contact him at least two to three weeks prior to that date with out success.

The last that I had heard was that tube cad cannot run on a 64bit machine. Is this still true? Has anyone tried it using something like vmware or the oracle vm hosting software running Windows xp under Windows 7? I really would like to get tube cad as well, but run 64bit.

Hopefully someone has had success with this.

That is correct, will not run on Win7 64Bit. I'm guessing he has not updated his tools (Delphi or C++Builder I'm guessing) that he has used to build it. I have it on an old winXP box. I had tried some of the compatibility modes and options on Win7 but could not get it working. Might just jump on Ebay and get an old laptop with XP on it and be done until he updates it.

And yes you never know when he will respond, I'm guessing he is always swamped with work that keeps him busy but never can tell.

SandyG - if you are running Windows 7 Professional, it comes with an XP emulator mode that you can start to run 32-bit programs. Unfortunately, this mode is only available with the Professional (or higher) grades.

Otherwise, you might be better off with the plan to pick up an "old" XP laptop for a song.
