x32 and x64 Versions of 6 Xstream Co-existing?

Hi guys,

I am thinking about adding Vue to my pipeline, but would like to know if the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Vue 6 Xstream will co-exist peacefully on the same installation?

I use Maya 8 and 8.5, 32 and 64 bit versions (to counter some plugin discrepancies and different renderer support) on my installation of XP Pro x64. So - I have 4 versions of Maya which I swap between regularly (don't ask...). I also use Max 9 x64.

If I install the 64 bit version of Vue 6XStream, I heard that it will only "connect" with 64 bit apps (which would kinda leave my 2 32 bit installations of Maya in the s**t). Is this true? Would I have to install both the 32 and 64 bit versions? And if so, would that be ok?

Many thanks,

I currently have both version of Vue 6 xStream installed on my system (I need the 32 bit version for some Python scripts that won't run in the 64 bit version) and I have no problem at all. In the Vue 6 xStream.reg file you will have two lines like that :

VueFolderPath64:\3D\Vue 6 xStream\
VueFolderPath32:\3D\Vue 6 - 32\

and you can share the content folder between the two installed versions without problems.

mental ray ... give it a try and let the sun shine, you won't regret it :)

Thank you!

Signing off now to boot up my 64 bit OS - why can't Belkin get the x64 drivers for my wireless adapter written?!

One problem with using both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions is that you might create a scene with the 64-bit versions which uses more RAM than the 32-bit version can address. The two apps should co-exist fine on your system, but be aware that the 32-bit version cannot use as much RAM as the 64-bit version can.
