I have troubles installing Pro/E in Win/ 64bits, the setup no run, no show th initial image for the installation.
Hey if the setup.exe does not show up it simply means that there's a data loss while downloading from internet or CD creation. In such circumstances it is advisable to use another fresh copy of setup files. Or installation may not be stable. I would not completely agree with Rajesh, the installation of 32 bit version is possible but reconfiguration of Pro/ENGINEER, also certain other applications of Pro/ENGINEER like Distributed Pro/BATCH and Pro/TOOLKIT may not be possible to achieve as the batch files would not run. As some of you guys may aware that the compilers of the batch files, dlls and Exes are different for 32bit and 64bit applications (Not just Pro/E but any applications for that matter). Yes coping the Pro/E setup file may work, but can't rely on its stability.
For education version you have to refer the mail sent you by PTC itself...
For me the complete package can never be downloaded... often came to a halt in the middle of downloading... Finally downloaded the pro-e wildfire 5.0 64-bit from torrent... Its working great....( p.s.models created with edu version are not compatible with pro version)...If needed i will post the torrent link...
That's strange!; shouldn't be a big deal win7 64bit OS. if the package is complete;regardless commercial/and or not.Installation should be a breeze. First, your PC have to be fit to install the software....there are tons of tutorials out there my friend; just Google and you will find someone already been there done that!,showing you how to overcome your situation.
You could edit the proe1.bat script in a text editor, add "pause" before and after the last line, and see if any errors show up when you start ProE.
I agree with the others who said installation is simple if the download is complete. Installation can complete with an incomplete download, but the application will not run. You can install the 32 bit version on a 64 bit OS, if you really really want to (only reason to is the reverse engineering extension, as far as I know), you just have to download the right thing, or for newer versions, specify which version you want during installation.
its not that difficult as u think
first download from torrent bcoz its work great and then start setup file and then 1st replace licence file open in .txt and replace and save and go on nxt - nxt - replace licence file and go on installing and completing patch it and get started...
