How to run studioSL on 64bit OS?
The version of studioSL on our download site will run on either 32bit or 64bit systems. To run studioSL on 64bit windows you must install the 64bit versions of JRE and JAVA3D. If you are using Streamsim's studioSL Online Installer on a 64bit system, it will automatically attempt to setup studioSL for 64bit. If you are not using our Online Installer then follow the below instructions.
- Install the 64bit Java Runtime Engine (JRE), which you can download from here. Careful to select the 64bit installer.
- Install java3D. Download from from here. Java3D will install into c:\program files\java\java3d. In some cases the \bin and \lib folders will NOT install into the location of your JRE 64bit install. Copy the \bin and \lib folders to the identical \bin and \lib folder of your 64bit JRE install (usually c:\program files\java\jre6).
The jdkhome variable MUST be point to your 64bit JRE install, rather than 32bit JRE install. Opening the file studiosl.conf in the studioSL <install dir>\etc sub-directory, and add the variable jdkhome="<path to jre>", for example jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jre6". Note that if you point it to your 32bit JRE install then studioSL will run as a 32bit version.Please see comment below.
- To launch studioSL on Windows 64, run or double-click the stuidoSL.exe executable in the <install dir>\bin sub-directory of your install directory. You can also create a shortcut to this exe and place on your desktop.
