64 bit C3D 2009 - MrSID file & Object enabler

769 Views, 22 Replies

Has anyone had any luck with the 64bit version of the Raster Object enabler that allows you to import *.SID images? The installation of the 64 bit version of the Object Enabler gives me an error saying I don't have permission on my computer. I'm thinking maybe it's because I'm using Win 7 and it may be written for Vista.

Any help is appreciated.

It works if you install the 32-bit version of the Object Enabler, since C3D is a 32-bit app. I had the same problem on my 64-bit W7 computer Edited by: mboex@bonestroo.com on Mar 4, 2010 2:42 PM

hmm.. I get the same error msg when trying to install the 32 bit version too. Obviously this is problem is isolated to my computer. After the enabler is installed are you able to Map\Import the SID files? That's my intention. I can Data connect to them but need a bit more versatility in trimming or cropping them.

Likely for 64bit AutoCAD installs.

Actually, I jumped the gun. I am able to complete the installation of the 32bit OE but I get an error when inserting the SID file and C3D crashes. I cannot install the 64 bit OE though because I get another permission error regarding the registry.

So, the 32 bit OE does not seem to work properly for my 64 bit Civil 3D install in Win 7. Once I troubleshoot the registry issue, I'm hoping it will fix itself by installing the 64 bit version.

Unless your running some future version, your C3D is 32bit.

I am aware of that, but I believe the 64 bit install structures it's directories different than a 32 bit install ( the x86 folders, etc). So there is a 32bit and 64bit OE available. I'm just having problems on my end (permissions, etc.)
