Crytek recommends using a 64-bit computer for production work with Sandbox. On a 64-bit PC, CRYENGINE Sandbox can be started by running the Editor.exe application found in the Bin64 directory.



As of CRYENGINE 3.6, only the 64-bit Editor is supported.


It is also possible to run the Sandbox Editor in 32-bit mode, by starting the Editor.exe application from the Bin32 directory.
