I think, that we have major bug in SW-2009 SP3 under Vista x64 Ultimate. SW will not sweep thread profile over helix under Vista x64 Ultimate. Same part has no issues under Xp x32. I did not try other shapes, but I do not think shape has anything to do with the issue (I might be wrong).

Hardware: Desktop
OS -->Vista x64 Ultimate SP-1
MB--> Nvidia nForce 750i SLI Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.5GHz
RAM--> 4GB
Video Card--> Nvidia 8400GS 512MB
Driver-- 178.08
HD--> WD 300GB SATA drive
BTW: this baby is flying. It takes 9 (nine) seconds to load SW including PDMWorks login.

Hardware: Laptop Compaq 8710w
OS--> Xp x32 SP-3
MB--> Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 2.4GHz
RAM--> 3MB
Video Card--> Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M
Driver--> ForceWare version 176.87
Foot note: takes about 2 (two minutes) to load with PDMWorks logiin

I did discover this issue when I took my part from laptop to desktop for sake of speed (I have need for speed). I have spent couple of hours trying to figure out why my sweep failed, regardless on what I did on Vista, while I did not have any problems on my laptop. I took this part back to the laptop and problem was gone (geometry not changed).

Any advice ???
