Install v6.9 on Windows7, 64-bit

Install v6.9 on Windows7, 64-bit

I am getting an error installing Abaqus 6.9 on my new laptop.  It uses Windows 7 Ultimate with 64-bit OS.  When I try to install the program (the documentation go on OK) I get:

WARNING: Unexpected output from Abaqus executable findWinVer.exe.
ERROR: This computer's platform is Windows/x86-32 but the Abaqus release was
       built for Windows/x86-64.  Please install and execute the Abaqus release
       built for Windows/x86-32 to ensure compatibility between your system and
       Abaqus software.
Abaqus sysinfo execution exited with error(s).
Abaqus sysinfo failed.

It looks like from the WARNING message that the findWinVer program does not pick up the correct version of the Operating System.  Anyone else seen this and have a work around?

Talk to the folks at Simulia.  That's what they're there for.

RE: Install v6.9 on Windows7, 64-bit

You can check:

It seems that Windows 7 is listed as supported only for v6.9EF, but not for v6.9 , but probably you should check this aspect with the Abaqus Support.


RE: Install v6.9 on Windows7, 64-bit

The problem was fixed with the aid of Abaqus support.  The fix was to use:
D:\setup -nosystemchecks
to install the program.

RE: Install v6.9 on Windows7, 64-bit

i think the upgrade to 6.9ef is free as long as you have the 6.9.x licence, as it can drive all 6.9 products. i am not sure though.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
