In listening to various sources discuss this, can someone clarify this issue for me?
Does Frame automatically run in 32-bit mode on a Vista 64-bit system, or do you have to do setup to get it to run properly. -Matt Matt Sullivan GRAFIX Training matt at grafixtraining.com www.grafixtraining.com office 714 960-6840 cell & txt 714 585-2335 sms message skype: mattrsullivan twitter: mattrsullivan linkedin facebook -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Dov Isaacs Sent: Wednesday, July 15, 2009 1:03 AM To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: RE: Soliciting hardware recommendations FrameMaker certainly does run on Vista 64-bit and runs exceptionally well! I ran FrameMaker 8 and now FrameMaker 9 in that environment without any problem whatsoever. What is true is that FrameMaker is a 32-bit application. Vista 64-bit runs 32-bit applications without a problem in 32-bit mode. What you do gain running a program like FrameMaker under Vista 64-bit is the ability of support much larger amounts of real memory (I run with 8 gigabytes) and thus run the risk of less paging activity to kill performance when running multiple applications concurrently! Also, I have found Vista 64-bit to be rock solid, running for weeks on end without reboots; my only reboots being necessary for the monthly "Patch Tuesday" Microsoft OS updates. - Dov > -----Original Message----- > From: framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com > [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Reng, Dr. > Winfried > Sent: Wednesday, July 15, 2009 12:28 AM > To: framers at lists.frameusers.com > Subject: RE: Soliciting hardware recommendations > > Hi, > > > If you get an Intel Core 2 Duo (or Core 2 Quad) system, running at > > 2.6GHz or higher, with 4GB of DDR2 RAM and 7200rpm drives (RAID 0 > > might be a bit of overkill but easy enough to do), Windows Vista > > Business 64-bit, and something like an nVidia 9600GT card or better, > > you will have *more* than enough power to run FrameMaker with > > excellent performance.
