Cross Platform Radiance Installers Now Available

The 4.2.a release appears to contain debug binaries which will only work on a system with Visual Studio 2008 installed (has a dependency on MSVCR90D.DLL which is the debug version of the VC++ 9.0 runtimes). I checked both the zip archive & the NSIS installer. I can't even run them myself as I have VS 2010 not VS 2008.

You'll either need to build from source or wait for a release build to be made available.

Hi Rob,

Very nice to have current Radiance version on Windows.

I've installed binary setup file in Windows and set PATH and RAYPATH environment variables as suggested on web page.
I have few other Radiance installations in Windows (inside Daysim for example), so I've experimented with PATH and RAYPATH variable, and put path to new Radiance installation as first in both variables and I get next message when I try to run any program:

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

I also tried to remove all paths related to other Radiance installations from PATH and RAYPATH varialbes, but still getting the same error message.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks in advance,
