Hi Guys,

From the online help:

'As of the 2014 version, Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, MotionBuilder, Mudbox, and Softimage do not support 32-bit and Windows XP Operating Systems. Refer to your product supplement for further information on specific software.'

No XP, no 32 bits support.

It should work on Windows XP 64bit as I was testing it on XP 64 bit.

Or SP3 is needed, maybe?

No exists SP3 for 64 bits.
Updated Framework 4.0?

Unsupported != does not work.

It's more a case of "we have not tested it on XP and are not going to help you if you run into trouble" but it might work with some fiddling.

Do you really need to be on xp64?

Have you tried to re-download the install?

Have you tried to install after a fresh boot?

There's no way I want to update our render farm to windows 8, that fills me with fear and dredd. Hopefully there is a way to install to an Xp x64 machine.....

Out with the old... Microsoft has done the same with Office 2013, only Win 7 and 8, other companies will probably follow...

I understand progression and all that, it's just that unless you are using Iray as your main renderer there no technical requirement/reason for a render server not to install the software under Xp. The best OS ever, apart from Win 3.1 that was fine as well.
It soon adds up cost wise to buy all those Os's.

Have you considered transitioning the farm to EC2?
