Is there a definitive statement somewhere or has there been a generally positive experience using 32bit versions of Pro/E (specifically WF5) on 64bit OS's (like the 64bit versions of Win7 or XP)? I see statements of people saying that the 32bit version would not use all the expanded memory available in a 64bit OS, but will the commercial version of Creo / Pro/E run and not die immediately?
Thanks for any observations you might be able to share.
it is possible to launch and use ProE WF5 32-bit on Windows 7 64-bit.
Unfortunatelly, it is necessary to know how to do installation...
I have not found any details on how to do such an installation. Does the Pro/E Admin Guide cover this? Is there another document or cheat sheet you can recommend? Would the install procedure differ between Win7 64bit and XP64?
Would the M080 date code be the best version to try this with?
1.] install ProE WF5 in Windows XP/7 32-bit
2.] copy installation directory to Windows XP/7 64-bit
3.] manually edit PSF file related to ProE launch command (located in PROE\bin directory)
replace every occurence of %PRO_MACHINE_TYPE% with i486_nt
Note: You can use M080 or any other Mxxx version...
