If the Windows package was downloaded before 02/02/2015, the netsetup12.exe utility included in the package was incorrect. This is a utility that can be used to set file associations and shortcuts when the installation package is not used (for example, it can be used to set file associations on an individual PC when the software is installed on a remote PC). The netsetup12.exe utility has been updated in the v12 packages above from 02/02/2015, or can be downloaded from here. For more information on the netsetup12.exe utility, see section 2.6 of the windows installation guide.

Please read before downloading 32 bit executables.
The Oasys 12.0 software suite is provided as both 64 bit and 32 bit executables. The 64 bit executables will only run on 64 bit hardware, but 32 bit executables will run on both 32 bit and 64 bit hardware. Both provide exactly the same functionality except that because of the limitations of the 32 bit address space:
This means that the 32 bit executables are likely to run out of memory when processing large models.

Where batch graphical post-processing is performed on remote clusters we have observed problems when the standard OpenGL graphical libraries are used, giving images of inferior quality. We have also observed problems when interactive graphics are generated remotely and displayed locally on the desktop through a network, as this can give unacceptably slow graphical performance.
Better results can sometimes be obtained in these situations from executables linked with the MESA emulation library, since this removes any dependence upon OpenGL and – in the remote display case – reduces network traffic. If you wish to have executables linked in this way, or would like further advice, please contact us.
