Micrografx Charisma version 3.0 for Windows (July 22, 1992 release) has the following problems when run under Windows NT:

  • Charisma can't render a picture in clipboard format when you choose Paste.
  • Insert Object in Charisma fails.
  • Object linking and embedding (OLE) does not work.
  • Charisma doesn't import .PCT files.
  • The Charisma logo disappears from the installation screen when you minimize and then restore the setup application.


The first three problems noted above occur because Charisma uses 16-bit drivers to perform these functions--Windows NT does not support 16-bit drivers.

The last two problems are independent of the operating system and occur under all version of Windows.
