Hi Charles,

You nailed it. I tried both the 32 and the 64 bit versions. Thanks for the great support!

There were a couple other little glitches you might want to check out before version 14 or some other significant update. None of what follows is worth worrying about immediately.

1. When I uninstalled the new 64 bit version to make way for testing the 32 bit version, the uninstall complained it couldn't find the 32 bit executable, then went ahead and uninstalled OK. That does not happen with the 32 bit version when uninstalled. I suspect there's a literal string whose value should be conditioned on the bitness of the build, but isn't.

C translation:

#ifdef BUILD64
#define EXENAME v64.exe
#define EXENAME v32.exe

2. After install, either bitness, WinDoze 7 didn't think the program installed correctly. I had to click that the installation was OK.

Thanks again!
