          Is the new bridge compatible with
          MSPS 2003?
          The new bridge is compatible
          with MSP 2003 and 2007.

          How can
          I download 7.5?
          Please refer to this link
          and request the upgrade. ProSight 7.5 will then be
          made avialable on our ESD site or you may request a
          CD.

          How intense is the
          mirgation effort?
          The upgrade to ProSight
          7.5 is a simple install. If you would like to take
          advantage of the new Dynamic List feature, there may
          be a data migration effort which is made simple using
          the Data Migration Utility that is available with the
          7.5 release.

          Can the Function
          engine now run on a VM?
          Although ProSight
          is not currently certified for use in production VM
          Ware environments, Primavera does plan to test and
          certify ProSight for production use on VM Ware. In our
          latest release, ProSight 7.5, we have made important
          function engine performance improvements which we
          expect to alleviate the problems that occurred when
          using prior releases in VM Ware environments. Detailed
          testing of ProSight 7.5 in VM Ware environments will
          be performed after the general release on July 28.
          When the testing is completed successfully, ProSight
          7.5 will be certified for production use in VM Ware
          environments. If unexpected issues are encountered,
          appropriate fixes will be made available in a future
          ProSight release.

          <br
          />What changes were made to the function engine?

          Performance has been optimized in ProSight
          7.5 by storing the list of calculations in database
          rather than in memory. This reduces the risk of
          running out of memory in implementations of
          significant size.
