Admin can't see etc directory Win2k8

Postby V-Since~List.au » Wed Dec 18, 2013 12:22 am

'Evening Charles and all,

Just noticed a name resolution problem in a new Win2k8 Server I am configuring which required editing their hosts file.

When I navigated to the directory V could not find it, yet explorer does?

I am logged in by TS as administrator.

Hidden etc folder Win2k8.jpg

I attempted 'add the directory' but V (V14) reported that it was already present, so I just added the DNS I needed in Notepad++ by opening the location and file.

Haven't struck this one before.

This is because you are running the 32 bit version of V on a 64 bit version of Windows.

Basically, the system32 folder that a 32 bit program sees is different to the system32 folder that a 64 bit program sees! I try to explain the problem here:

You should not have the problem when using the 64 bit version of V.
