STAR-CCM+ and Windows 64-bit OS
Does anyone have any experience running STAR-CCM+ and a Windows 64-bit OS? What kinds of "growing pains" have you experienced using this combination?

Any advice or information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Some crashes now and then, but otherwise quite good. No extreme pains I would say.

Some crashes, it's true, but the greatest pain is the 3D visualization using the Nvidia Quadro cards: redraw problems, refresh problems, the interface hangs... Same thing under XP64 and Vista Business 64. I actually don't know if it is a driver problem, java problem, opengl problem or windows problem, but under CentOS Linux I experienced less crashes and no visualization issues, Linux is strongly reccomended when you're going to do some serious stuff.
