Mathcad 2001 and PDEs?

    I am considering purchasing Mathcad 2001 (not the latest release,
    Version 11, but the one before that), and I have posted a few
    questions regarding that purchase. I have one more question...

    I wanted to know if Mathcad 2001 can provide closed form solutions for
    at least some partial differential equations. I posted this question
    several places including Mathsoft's own "collaboratory" (their
    user-helping-user Web site). One or two people responded in the
    affirmative.

    However, Mathsoft's own people claim it does not. I know that
    sometimes tech support people are not always 100% accurate even about
    their own products (especially one that they no longer support or
    sell). And I'm just cynical enough to think that they might even
    deliberately mislead me, in an effort to get me to buy the latest
    version of the product. (I will not buy MC 11, because it requires
    Product Activation...)

    Anyway, the question is, can someone confirm that MC 2001 (not 2001i,
    but just 2001) does or does not provide closed-form solutions to PDEs?
    (I understand it won't solve all such equations, but it would help if
    it at least has the ability to solve some such equations, and related
    boundary value problems.)

    Thanks in advance for all replies.
