    Thanks for the update.

    Anyway, here's a FYI for those using 64-bit Windows (and bother to read)...

    1. The SumatraPDf devs have no interest in compiling a 64-bit build.

    Reasons given here:

    Fair enough as the original 32-bit builds do work in 64-bit Windows. However, some users might want/need to use a 64-bit build if:

    a) they want/need PDF previews/thumbnails.
    b) they use 64-bit browser and want/need browser plugin
    c) they want/need performance improvement (but this is subjective and open to debate)

    2. Unofficial 64-bit builds

    Since it's an open-source project, there are others who have compiled 64-bit builds for those interested.

    IF you're keen, have a look at these:

    1. XhmikosR's build here:

    This build includes an installer.

    2. SumatraPDFOpt here:

    The builds are provided in .ZIP format (no installer)

    These are mainly based on pre-release builds (SVN revision) from SumatraPDF trunk

    The list of changes for these can be found here:
