Run Reason 6 in 32bit mode and you'll be fine.

On a Mac, right click on Reason application icon>get info>run in 32bit mode.

On Windows, reinstall choosing the 32bit install. I believe the ReadMe file explains that.

Quote from the Read Me file:

Under Windows, you need to install a separate 32-bit version of Reason:
1. Open the Reason DVD (or the Reason download package, if you have downloaded the program from the web) in the Windows Explorer.
2. Right-click the "Install Reason.exe" file and select "Create Shortcut".
If the file is on the DVD, you will be asked if you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop - click Yes.
3. Locate the shortcut you just created, right-click it and select "Properties".
4. On the "Shortcut" page of the Properties dialog, locate the Target field and add " /32" (without the quotes) at the very end. The Target field should say
"D:\Install Reason.exe" /32
(although the drive letter may not be "D", depending on your setup).
5. Click OK.
6. Double click the shortcut file to install a 32-bit version of Reason.
The installed Reason version will have the name "Reason (32)" on the Start menu and desktop. You can have the regular 64-bit version installed at the same time if you like.

Hi Bones,

This is what I did....would welcome your help?

Rewired Reason 6 ok on the mac into a 32bit application fine, everything cool.

But, on the win7 64bit system, it seems a different matter.

These are the steps taken per Prop FAQ's:
Create a shortcut of the "Install Reason.exe" file.
Right-click the shortcut and select "Properties".
In the "Target" field, add " /32" (without quotes, keep the leading space) at the very end.
Click OK.
Double click the shortcut to run the Reason installer in 32-bit mode.

The target statement per the shortcut icon now reads: F:\Reason\Reason.exe /32

Yet it still refused to work in 32bit mode...

Not a Windows user but let's try to figure that out. Is F the correct letter? Also shouldn't you keep those other quotations?

"F:\Reason\Reason.exe" /32

And shouldn't it be:

"D:\Install Reason.exe" /32, where instead of D you should have the right drive letter?

Also, are you right clicking on the INSTALL icon (good!) or on the APPLICATION icon (bad!)?

Smile Cubase and Rewire

Thanks, I was pulling my hair out too in Cubase 6.5 on the Mac trying to figure out how to get Rewire to work. Once the UAD plug ins go 64 but, I can run everything in 64 bit mode
