CANTOR Professional Software Receives Windows Vista TM Certification

CANTOR Software GmbH, a subsidiary of ALBAT+WIRSAM Software AG for glass, announces their successful completion of certification procedures for CANTOR Professional Version 2008.1 Linden, Germany (May 15, 2008) CANTOR Software GmbH announces their successful completion of certification procedures for CANTOR Professional Version 2008.1 “Certified for Windows Vista TM” This new Windows Vista certification will now take place alongside certifications for Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

CANTOR is now equipped for the newest Redmond Version, making them one of the first internationally operating companies to successfully fulfill the Quality and Reliability Standards as defined and listed on the Microsoft© website at the following internet link:


Originally entered into in December, 2006, the certification process was lengthier than anticipated, primarily due to the test procedure itself, which had been changed and altered a total of four times since its onset. These changes had made it most important for us to provide our customers with a Certificate Version of our software based on these latest Microsoft modifications, supporting the understanding we have with our clients that CANTOR software support the latest Microsoft technology as quickly as possible.

What is the great significance behind the Vista TM Certification? An immediately recognizable identification symbol, the “Certified for Windows Vista TM” logo attests to the compatibility of CANTOR software applications with this operating system, all of which, during the certification phase, have undergone rigid testing procedures conducted on computers operating with the Windows Vista TM system. CANTOR’s compliance with technical requirements has been tested in four main areas: reliability, security, compatibility with the Windows Vista TM and subsequent operating systems, as well as smooth, trouble-free installation and de-installation of the software. According to VERITEST, software applications complying with the “Windows Vista TM” certification criteria provide a high level of user-friendliness and, as such, are among the most modern, competitive products on the market.

Windows Vista TM offers an abundance of modified safety mechanisms for the programs being installed. All programs not yet certified for Windows Vista will remain functional during a transitional period. It is expected, however, that the new Microsoft security mechanisms will be increasingly activated with subsequent versions and updates. This could lead to extensive difficulties with programs that have not yet been certified. In a “worst case” situation, these programs would be rendered non-functional. This is the reason that so much effort has been placed on obtaining certification for the CANTOR Professional software as quickly as possible.

With this certification, Microsoft© has attested the CANTOR Professional Version 2008.1 has excellent security, durability, and resource-conserving attributes, all qualities are of central importance with respect to smooth production flow and the avoidance of downtime.

As a Microsoft © GOLD CERTIFIED Partner of long standing, we will continue to provide our customers the assurance that CANTOR software products always comply with the latest standards in technology.
