Going Quad Epilogue
Since the three days of pain in going quad [/post/2007/08/02/When-Things-Go-Wrong-Going-Quad.aspx], I’ve rather enjoyed using Vista x64 thus far. UAC hasn’t been as much of a pain as it might and HP even had drivers for my old Deskjet. But beyond my initial impressions [/post/2007/08/07/First-impressions-of-Vista.aspx], there are definitely a few more 64bit switch issues that aren’t going to go away.
- There’s no flash player plug-in for any 64 bit browser. And no sign of Adobe writing one soon either [http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/10/19/1959200]. YouTube is now but a copy hyperlink, open IE x86, paste and watch away. Joy. At least SlickRun makes this slightly bearable. * OneNote 2007 installs a ‘send to onenote’ button in IE x86, but not in IE x64. * Microsoft File Transfer manager [http://transfers.one.microsoft.com/ftm/default.aspx] will not install in IE x64 * Ultramon [http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/] doesn’t work very well in Vista. In Vista x64, it also BSoDs from time to time after waking from sleep.
Ultramon I understand, but Microsoft and Adobe? Sheesh.Posted on August 23, 2007 #Geek Stuff
