Thread: Windows XP Pro x64 ( 64 bit ) FINAL released! (Build 1830)

    Default Windows XP Pro x64 ( 64 bit ) FINAL released! (Build 1830)

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the final build (build 1830) or 64-bit XP has been released to manufacturers (RTM).

    I have it, it works great. Except for D-Tools of course :-(

    Hope this announcement helps some of the beta testers or something.

    Yeha it has been released for about a week now. Looking forward to a x64 compatible version of Daemon Tools

    Windows XP x64 is very well capable of running 32bit software, or so claims Microsoft.

    But what it's not capable of is using 32bit drivers. That's a limitation Microsoft openly states on almost every product page of their x64 OSs.

    Daemon Tools uses a driver to create a virtual drive, but that driver is a 32bit one, thus the incompatibility. Daemon Tools v4 is currently being developed and nearing final status, and the new version will support Windows XP x64. Until then, you'll unfortunately have to wait, there's no quick fix to make a 32bit driver 64bit-compatible.

    And to prevent the flood of questions this might - well, most probably will - spawn, v4 will be released 'when it's done', we're not willing nor going to say anything more specific. Sorry, but developing software takes its time if it is to be a stable, fully working product. We want it to be that way, and I think you'll all want it to be that way too, right?

    So, I'm sorry but the only thing you can do is wait for the next release. But I can assure you it'll be worth the wait...

    Is this a joke?
    If not, call your OEM, or Microsoft if bought the software from them.

    i got a problem. i installed win64 and i also dual booted 32. i had this keyboard i used to install both of them and set a password for only 32. the keyboard died, so when i bought a new one, i cant get into 32 because of the password. the keyboard isnt reconized. so when i go into 64, which doesnt have a password, the keyboard is reconized, but i cant install the drivers because its not compatible with 64-bit. so can anyone help me to get into 32 without reinstalling it. thanks.

    Default keyboard drivers on 64-bit windows

    Interesting, I've never tried to install drivers without being logged on to windows. Can't you plug in a PS-2 (mini-DIN) keyboard? Can you talk any of your friends into letting you borrow their keyboard for a few hours?

    p.s. Installing windows 64-bit doesn't seem to have anything to do with your problem.

    yeah i have tried PS-2 keyboards lying around the house and also another microsoft usb keyboard. it still cannot reconize it on the user screen. it can reconize it in the bios. nothing is working so i think im going to have to re-install 32.

    Default keyboard drivers on 64-bit windows

    What about safe-mode for windows. Is your keyboard still unresponsive in that mode?

    Does a PS/2 mouse work at the logon screen (GINA) ? What if you plug your keyboard into the other input (colors are usually pink and green)? Maybe one of your computer's PS/2 ports failed.

    You could try the /bootlog switch in boot.ini but I'm not sure people in this forum would be experts in interpreting that log file.

    Your windows 32-bit and 64-bit are on different partitions, right?
