Problem installing on 64bit Intel
« on: May 16, 2007, 03:17:26 PM »
In Windows Xp Pro 64bit Edition, two program folders are used "program files" and "program files(x86)".   Qube installs into "program files(x86)" since it is 32bit, however, when it runs it looks for worker5.jnl in the "program files" folder, which is for 64bit programs.  I copied the installation to that folder which allows it to run, but appears to cause instability because of the mixed bit addressing.  Qube will render for a while and then the system goes down.  I have to constantly restart the service.  Is there some other way to install 32bit Qube on a 64bit system without having it look in the "program files" folder to ensure that it stays safely in 32bit mode?

Hey arenyart,

This should have been an issue addressed by the installer.  However that aside, the way Qube! finds it's other components is to use the qb.conf file.  This is located here: C:\windows\qb.conf

The entry qb_directory should be equal to it's installation location.

qb_directory = "C:\Program Files\pfx\qube"  or with the x86 in your case. 

Try checking the value of this entry to see if it's set correctly.

Thanks,
   Anthony
