Question QG-010:

When starting ADINA on a 64-bit Windows computer, there is an AUI error message:

Error: Unable to start the program c:\ADINA85\x64\aui.exe
Please check ADINAHOME environment
What is the cause of this error?


If your machine does not have Visual Studio 2005 installed, you will need to first run the Microsoft C++ 2005 Redistributable package before you can run the 64-bit version of ADINA.

The package is vcredist_x64.exe in the directory

if you installed ADINA in the default directory

Note that the 64-bit Windows version license does not support the parallel port dongle.
