Using TrimPort while keeping the 64 bit build of Trim 7
One of our users was disappointed that TrimPort is not included in the 64 bit versions of Trim 7, so I was wondering if anybody could confirm whether or not Trim would function correctly if both the 32 and 64 bit versions (of the same version number) were installed on a computer? I installed the 32 bit version on my computer and am still able to launch either, but I haven't stress tested to see if anything is broken.
Alternatively, is HP considering including TrimPort in future 64 bit releases of Trim?
Re: Using TrimPort while keeping the 64 bit build of Trim 7
Unfortunately, that's not quite accurate. I tried that and when I try to launch TrimPort, it complains that tsjocx.dll is missing/invalid. This happens even after I copy the trimport executable into Trim's program files directory, ensure that tsjocx.dll (of the 64 bit build of Trim) exists in the directory, and manually unregister and reregister that library file from an elevated command prompt.
Has anybody really gotten the 32 bit TrimPort application working on a computer that only has a 64 bit build of Trim? I'd like to avoid having to resort to removing and installing the 32 bit versions of Trim and Office or install a virtual machine in order to provide this tool to the user.
Re: Using TrimPort on win 7 64 bit with 32bit TRIM
It cannot feasibly be made to work unless the 32 bit version of Trim is installed on the computer. Installing 32 and 64 bit Trim on the same computer may work but is not supported. As a workaround, if you have the Pro/Enterprise/Ultimate version of Windows 7, you can use the "XP Mode" virtual machine:
This will give you a 32 bit Windows XP VM onto which you can install Trim 7.1.x. If your IT staff doesn't have to resources to set this up on every 64 bit Trim user's computer, and the users can't set it up themselves, it might be easier to have them run Trimport from a shared machine. If they are allowed to remotely control (ie. Remote Desktop) that shared computer, then they don't even have to leave their assigned computer to use it.
