I'm a retired Printer/Sign maker that wants to get my hands back into some sign making as a hobby or side line to keep me busy. When I got out of the business I was using the Roland PC-60 using Corel Draw 9 with Drawmate 9 using Windows 98. Now that I am wanting to get back into it I bought a very little used PC-600 and I'm using XP-Pro operating system, and lo and behold I now find out that I can't use my CD 9 with Drawmate as it don't work with Windows XP. So my question is I am now thinking of buying Smart Designer 4.5 and hook it up to Corel Draw X5 and still use the Windows XP. I had one guy tell me that the PC-600 won't work with that software, but I had a couple others tell me that they use it everyday with the setup. What is the truth? I would like some expert opinions about what will and won't work using the PC-600. As I done have it, that is what I need to use though I would rethink buying it if I had to do it all over again. Please give me your opinions and any info you feel would help me get back into something I once loved to do at one time in my life.
