I would like to include the excellent DWG True View on a CD for my customers (so they don't have to download, many of them have poor connections to download about 1 gig).
Anyways, there is a 64-bit and a 32-bit version of DWG True View. Obviously some customer will be using 32-bit and others will be using 64-bit OSs. Therefore, I thought I could just download the 32-bit version and put it on a CD. Then the 32-bit version of True View 2013 would be installed on the computer - no matter if they had 32-bit or 64-bit OS and it should work. Or so I thought.
Seems like there is something in the install that actually prevents the user from installing the 32-bit version of DWG True View on a 64-bit computer. Why is that? Is there a way around this?
The only solution that I seem to have is to point them to the website - or put both installs on one DVD. :-(
Also - FYI - the 32-bit version of the DWG True View 2013 installs seems very flakey! I kept trying to download it and it "appeared" to have downloaded, but it didn't. I kept finding files named "SetupDWGTrueView2013_32bit.exe.part" or "SetupDWGTrueView2013_32bit.exe.2.part" instead.
Solved! Go to Solution.
"put both installs on one DVD"
... and provide clear instructions for your recipients: if they can install their own software, they can do a little reading too.
Eh, not the answer I was hoping for.
This is the obvious other "answer" that I was trying to avoid.
Thanks for the response though.
