*sigh* I'm still hunting the very elusive Conversion Pack 2.1 for trueSpace 6.6.

If you do a clean install of 6.5, don't add any 3rd party plugins or anything else, the 6.6 update should innstall without a problem.

What you do then have an issue with is any 3rd party plugins etc which were broken by the 6.6 update. Everything Caligari originally provided with 6.5 that needs updating should get updated by the 6.6 update.

Would have been nice if the 6.6 update would detect and update Conversion Pack 2.0 to 2.1 instead of removing 2.0.

Galene....I think I have the Conversion Pack...not sure though.

Check thew file neames I give in the early part of this post.


I will try to re-install 6.5 and then do the ts66SP update...if that IS the 6.6 update file?


I will report back after trying. :?

Same issue....

I loaded 6.5 fresh.

And then tried the ts66SP file and same error.

I tried it within the ts65 folder where ts6.exe exist and then tried it outside that folder and got and error just saying cannot find old file.

Still hioping for something from the older caligari forum...if its out there still.... :worship:

try ts66sp.exe in ts 66, its a service pack for 66 not 65. you can manually copy the conversion pack into 66 from 65 there is one error with dwg if I remember. Just don't open the dwg panel.

Hey Stan...I'm actually trying to identify the file name which gets you from 6.5 to 6.6. :bananacheers:

that would be the ts66 installer from cd or download from caligari. It was a full install not a service pack.

I had 6.5 updated to 6.6 running on Win8 32bit no problem, I had more issues with Vista and my AMD CPU's!
XP it was rock solid
I never ran TS6.6 with any more than 2GB of RAM infact at the end of the Cali days I was using a XP2000 office computer running XP and just over 1GB of Ram and a crappy 64meg intel video card and it was less hassle than the dual core system I replaced it with

6.5 to 6.6 is:
ts65sp-66.exe 8.560 meg

Somewhere there's an upgrader install from 6.5 to 6.6. I used it when I upgraded. Haven't used it since then because I've just kept the folder and only had to re-enter the serial number when reinstalling windows or moving tS 6.6 to a different PC.

Thanks Nigec for the file name.....unfortunately for me, my workhorse computer hard drive died out a while back and I miraculously had saved what I had thought were all the files to have Truespace running again just before it died.

Except, it appears, that file you have mentioned to upgrade from 6.5 to 6.6. :x

I have virtually every other ts upgrade around since I bought my first 4.3 version on disc. Since 5.2 it's been all download.

I have the:
5.2 upgrade cd
5 conversion cd
raypak cd
depak cd
anipak cd
fxpak cd


6.0 download
6.5 download
6.6 Service Pack
6.6 Conversion
6.6 SP2
6.6 Conversion 2

And then of course 7.5 and 7.6 and Vray.

And a host of other truespace cd's

I will keep looking...maybe it will still turn up. Thanks again :?

Well after looking high and low, I am unable to find the file needed to upgrade from 6.5 to 6.6.


Nigec mentioned the file as listed below:
6.5 to 6.6 is:
ts65sp-66.exe 8.560 meg

I would be willing to buy or trade for this file.

If anyone is interested, please let me know.
email me at: rhino169@aol.com

If I am out of bounds here by asking, please let me know that as well and I will beg for forgiveness now
