I recently updated to osx mountain lion on all my machines. when i went to install sketchbook pro it stops the install short and says you need a newer version. I believe I was using version 10 maybe? i forget. I assume the newest version works since i havent heard of anyone complain about it. Is there anyway I can get my version to work or do i basically have to purchase a second newer copy for it to work. The version i was using was fine i really dont like being forced to buy another copy.
I don't think buying a new copy is going to work. Lots of people have had the same problem as you (old software not working). It's a Mac thing.
Autodesk has stopped updating sketchbook pro and have move on to Sketchbook designer http://www.conceptart.org/forums/ima...ermade/wtf.gif. The reviews on Designer have been poor. It might be time to move on to another software.
My personal fav is ArtRage. Has better realism then corel painter and stable. I heard openCanvas is good, the open source MyPaint is coming along. Paint Tool Sai is good but pc only.
http://store.autodesk.com/store/adsk...0?adsk_t=false $30 dollar upgrade. Not too bad.
I wouldn't listen to the advice above me because it doesn't look like they read your post very well
Sketchbook Designer is a completely different package that incorporates many more tools, especially an amazing vector facility. It does receive mixed reviews however, not because it isn't any good, more that it is a little "temperamental." And it's expensive!

I had this great rant about how Sketchbook pro has not been updated since 2011. The rant was going to be great, it was going to explain how Sketchbook pro need to be updated, how other "basic" programs had more features. I would then talk about how ArtRage had taken Sketchbook pro place... and now... I find out about SB 6.
thanks all. guess i will look at the 30 dollar upgrade Arshes Nei pointed out.
