How do I install a 32-bit version of Reason on a 64-bit environment?`


1. Make sure Reason is shut down.
2. Select the Reason application in the Finder and choose “Get Info” from the File menu.
3. Enable “Open in 32-bit Mode”.
The next time you launch Reason it will run in 32-bit mode.


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. “
