MMS under 64-bit Vista

Postby zuijlen » Apr 16, 2010 10:18 pm

I just downloaded the demo version of Magic Movie Screenwriter and installed it under Vista 64-bit. I could launch it succesfully: so far so good. However, there are a few things that do not work and both are related to the fact that 64-bit Windows can not run 16-bit applications. If I try to Import a file I get an error stating that XTDLINK.EXE is not compatible with the operating system and that a 32 or 64-bit version is needed. I get a similar message when I try to edit the user dictionary (DICTEDIT.EXE).

With 64-bit operating systems becoming more and more common, is there any chance of an update for MMS? I really like the program, but this makes me kind of reluctant.
