    * 32-bit operating systems can physically allocate only 3GB of RAM. RAM greater than 3GB (if installed) will remain un-utilized.

    * * Understanding the user demographic for all edition, it is required that the edition be able to run without OpenGL. This is primarily due to the fact that users might be using this edition on home desktop machines and the available graphics cards may not support OpenGL. In order to address this issue in the event that users graphics card does not support OpenGL, PTC will include Software OpenGL technology into the installation.

  • This will be controlled by a new option called use_software_opengl=yes. When activated, Creo 2.0 will utilize the software OpenGL and ignore the standard graphics option.
