Post Processing Computational Engineering International (CEI) has announced support for Windows Vista across its suite of visualization products.

Both the 32- and 64-bit versions of Vista join the company’s extensive portfolio of supported platforms and can now interoperate with any other supported operating system, thanks to CEI’s flexible cross-platform architecture. CEI’s suite of engineering and scientific tools includes applications for all aspects of visualization, from plotting to animation.

“We’re pleased to give our users the ability to take advantage of Vista’s full functionality, including its improved user interface, heightened security, enhanced interoperability, and stronger 64-bit integration,” said Darin McKinnis, vice president of sales & marketing at CEI. “And there’s no need to worry about platform compatibility, because as always, users can freely mix any and all supported platforms when using our applications.”

CEI’s architecture allows users of Vista, or any other platform, to run all of the company’s applications across networked computers and across multiple platforms, enabling users to mix platforms within a single visualization session, within a workgroup, or across an entire corporate network. Currently, CEI supports the latest versions of Linux (including 32- and 64-bit versions and Itanium), AIX, HPUX, IRIX, Solaris, Tru64, Windows (32- and 64-bit versions) and Mac OS X. CEI allows users of all supported platforms to take advantage of full functionality.

CEI’s licensing model is platform-independent. Users of any major platform within an existing CEI customer site can simply install EnSight and contact the network administrator to obtain the license key to use the software.

To ensure complete compatibility, Vista users will need to install the latest version of all CEI applications before running them on Vista. Users running Vista will require EnSight 8.2.4a or later. Updates are available in the download area of For peak performance of all products running on Vista, CEI recommends installing the 64-bit version of Vista. In addition, it is recommended that users update graphic card drivers from the appropriate manufacturer’s site for optimal performance after installing Vista.
