Since this forum was revived recently and that I've recently acquired an Itanium 2 (IA-64) based HP system, I'll also post my inquiry here. Anyway, I've installed Windows XP 64-bit edition on the system (to see how it works) and I was wondering if Houdini for IA-64 still archived somewhere? I'd love to try it out.

Thanks in advance.

Can't you install the current 64bit Win version?

No, it won't of course work, it's a completely different processor and architecture (VLIW/EPIC instead of x86/AMD64-based CISC). Just for the hell of it, I've actually tried it under Windows XP for IA-64, to see if there was some out of the box x86[-64] binary ‘compatibility’ feature of some kind (which I think was promised by MS at some point).

Again, does anyone perhaps have an archived version? Thanks in advance!
