    AX Using USB Lon on 64 bit computer. What ru doing?

    I want to program a stand alone Lon Spyder with my AX. My laptop is 64 bit and I get platLon:LonPlatformService error. My research indicates I need to install a 32 bit AX which will require a license change. Is this true? What functional differences are in the 32 bit version and 64? How can I have two different licenses (my other versions of AX) on one machine?

    They have different Host ID's. I have 32 bit and 64 bit on mine.

    The lon adapters as I recall do not have a working 64 bit driver and it is not able to be selected in Niagara.

    I have a 64 Bit Windows laptop, but have always installed the 32 bit version of any Workbench. I've never had any issues/limitations and the USB Lon Adapter works fine.

    So you installed both versions? How do you start different versions? Did you do this so you could use Lon on the 32 bit one? Why would you get 2 licenses and not just use the 32 bit version?

    I started with 64 bit and then found out the lon adapter issue so I installed 32 bit. I installed 32 bit in a different folder structure so it will start on its own.

    Did that require a license change?

    32 and 64bit installs will generate different hostIDs.

    Sure will. Its two separate copies with their own IDs and licenses.

    I've got beaucoup 64 bit versions on this laptop. Should I start installing 32 bit on my new laptop? Any downside? What about N4? How does that licensing work with AX?

    Tridium licensing never fails to amaze me.

    So, let me understand this.

    If I have 64 bit Windows installed and I install 32 bit AX or N4 flavour then the USB Lon interface is going to work.
    If I install any 64 bit flavour of AX or N4 then regardless of what Win Op system (64 or 32 bit) the USB Lon interface is not going to play ball with Tridium.

    If thats righ then is this not an issue with Tridium and not Echelon?
    I have recently got a new 64 bit Win7 laptop and downloaded the Open LDV v5.0 driver from Echelon and that will see my U10 USB interface. So surely the driver is available, is it just that Tridium have not done the programming to enable the 64 bit version of their software to connect to the interface.

    Am I wrong? or missed something?

    64bit workbech does not support the lon adapter, use 32 if you need it. This is noted in docLon. Given the popularity of lon these days, it not a huge surprise that they are not investing any time to bring support for it in the 64bit world.
