Nemetschek Vectorworks’ testing procedures focus on professional or workstation-grade equipment, as identified by the hardware equipment manufacturer. Receiving a performance designation of “Quality Tested” for Vectorworks software does not guarantee that a particular device is workstation-grade or that it will meet a user’s particular needs. Also, workstation verification results are valid only for the tested combination of hardware and driver specified and Vectorworks software version listed. Equipment listed as receiving passing results provides no guarantee that the specific hardware will perform acceptably with other drivers.
