PTV Visum - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

(#VIS12348)

Can Excel 32 bit instantiate ScriptMuuli 64 bit or PTV Visum 64 bit?

For PTV Visum yes, because PTV Visum runs as a 'out of process' COM server (*.exe), Excel VBA can instantiate both 32 bit and 64 bit Visum.
This is different for the component ScriptMuuli, as this is an 'in-process' COM-server (*.dll): Excel 32 bit CAN ONLY instantiate ScriptMuuli 32 bit and CANNOT instantiate ScriptMuuli 64 bit.
Workarounds:
- Use Excel 64 bit to instantiate ScriptMuuli 64 bit (available with Microsoft Office 2010).
- Visum 16/17: Register ScriptMuuli 32 bit.

- Until Visum 16: install Visum 32 bit addditionally to be able to use ScriptMuuli 32 bit.
