The Icy package available from the NAIF server can and will function  
in the IDL 6.4 environment - provided you rebuild the Icy shared  
library against IDL 6.4.

To do so, you must edit the mkprodct.csh (or mkprodct.bat depending  
on platform) build scripts to correct the paths values to the IDL 6.4  

Example, the mkprodct.bat script for the Windows environment:

   C:\Program Files\ITT\IDL64\external
   C:\Program Files\ITT\IDL64\bin/bin.x86\idl.lib

I realize many IDL 6.4 installations for Unixes maintain use of the  
"rsi" directory from earlier IDL installations instead of using the  
new "itt" directory (eliminating the need to edit the build script).  
Still, edit the mkprodct scripts according to your installed IDL  

Once you have a proper mkprodct script, execute the script to rebuild  

Please contact me if you experience problems.

As always,
