You'll probably find that you get 2 C: Program Files folders
One for 32 bit and one for 64.
Launch them from the right folder and you shouldn't have any problems.

Or at least, that's what I've found so far

In hindsight my message was a bit confusing. The switch to 64 bit OS is to support large models in Pro Engineer and Unigraphics. Once they have been exported, Surfacer usually doesn't have a problem with them. And yes, Surfacer was designed for NT so there would be no advantage to the 64 bit OS, but I don't want to make it impossible to run Surfacer until I have an alternative. Hopefully that's more clear.

Sure it will run under 7 but vista will be a crapshoot. If the software is 64bit capable then it will use the "extra" memory available in the new systems if not it will perform the same.

Ok guys please don't laugh. I still use Surfacer 10.6 to prepare models. Old as it might be it works well for what we build. Currently I'm using XP but the models are getting larger all the time as most of the designers have switched to 64 bit OS. The fix from IT is a 64 bit OS for me. My only hesitation is that the fix may be more trouble than the problem.

The question is will it run well under Windows Vista or Windows 7?

Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.
