How to run Translog 2006 on 64 bit Windows
How to run Translog 2006 (3.2.4) on 64 bit Windows:
1. Download and install the.NET Framework 2.0 Software Development Kit (SDK) (x64)from Microsoft (this step can be skipped if the program is already installed): http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=15354
The program corflags.exe can now be found under:
C:Program FilesMicrosoft.NETSDKv2.0 64bitBin
NB! Note that this directory location is the typical directory location. The location may be different depending on the specific Windows language.
3. Install Translog. Translog should be installed under its default destination directory which is: C:Program Files (x86)Translog 2006 NB! Note that this directory location is the typical directory location. The location may be different depending on the specific Windows language.
4. Open a command shell with administrative privileges. In English language
Windows installations go to [start], choose [run] and type "cmd" in the shell command window.
5. In order to instruct Translog to run in 32-bit-mode, two parameters must be defined to corflags.exe from the command shell. Execute the program corflags.exe inside the command shell from its location (see step 1 for the file Windows file path). The first parameter is the executable (assembly) which corflags.exe has to modify. The second parameter is /32BIT+ which tells corflags.exe to switch to 32 bit mode. In general, the command line should look like this: corflags.exe <path_to_executable> /32BIT+
More precisely, if the programs are installed and set up using the default paths (as mentioned above), two commands have to be executed: one for Translog Supervisor and one for Translog User. Note that each command has to be on one line with no line breaks! Note also that the quotation marks have to be there!
Translog Supervisor command line (all on one line including quotation marks!): "C:Program FilesMicrosoft.NETSDKv2.0 64bitBincorflags.exe" "C:Program Files (x86)Translog 2006Translog Supervisor 2006.exe" /32BIT+
Translog User command line (all on one line!):"C:Program FilesMicrosoft.NETSDKv2.0 64bitBincorflags.exe" "c:Program Files (x86)Translog 2006Translog User 2006.exe" /32BIT+
If everything went right then corflags.exe outputs the following message after each command:
Microsoft (R) .NET Framework CorFlags Conversion Tool. Version 2.0.50727.42Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
Otherwise corflags.exe will return an error message. Most often, the errors are caused either by 1) missing administrative privileges or 2) wrong directory file paths. If this is the case, make sure that you have administrative privileges and that the file path is entered correctly.
Done! Translog may now be run on a 64-bit Windows machine.
