I am looking at purchasing Softimage XSI Foundation but had seen that it is limited to 32 bit. It also said on the Softimage website that Softimage does not support running 32 bit software on a 64 bit machine. Is anyone here running XSI Foundation on a 64 bit machine? I just want to make sure my copy of Softimage will work on a 64 bit platform if I choose to get the Foundation version.

it doesn't run on xp64 bit, not properly anyway, but it runs fine on 64bit processors booting to normal xp or 2k.

Thanks for the info. As long as it runs on 64 bit hardware I am not really worried. I assume by the time most folks switch to Vista in a year or so Foundation will be able to run on Vista even if it's still restricted to 32 bit.
