Windows 64-bit Installations

There are 64-bit versions of most extend products. These 64-bit versions are installed using a separate 64-bit version of the installer. The installation process follows the same steps as described in Installation on Windows Platforms, with the following notable exceptions.

When running the 64-bit installer, if no 64-bit version exists for a selected product (for example, AcuBench), the 32-bit version is installed.

Products such as AcuConnect and AcuServer have 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and both are installed if you select these products during installation. You can also decide which version of the product to start on completion of the installation.

The AcuXDBC product is broken down into three installations: for the Data Interface, you can install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions; and for the AcuXDBC Server and Enterprise Edition, you must chose which version to install.

By default, all 64-bit product versions are installed in the Program Files directory, and 32-bit product versions (and any supporting non-64-bit tools) are installed in the Program Files (x86) directory; although, you can change these locations during the installation. All the 32-bit versions are fully supported and functional in a 64-bit environment.

Remember: When running the license activator after the installation, the 64-bit version of the Activator utility is run, which installs license files into both the 32-bit and 64-bit directories. When running the Activator utility from the command prompt, make sure you are using the 64-bit command prompt to ensure the correct licenses are generated and placed in the correct locations; otherwise, if the 32-bit Activator utility is run, only license files for 32-bit products will be generated.
