Will the The Returnil Virtual System 2008 Personal Edition work on a Vista 64 bit computer?
Hello PegM_4 and welcome to the forums
No, x64 compatibility will be available at some point in the V3x series...
Don't bother making 64bit for XP and Vista.
Its more important to make 64bit For windows 7 when it comes out. I am tired of being restricted to only 4GB of Ram.
and Returnil running in memory option would work better with more Ram Right?
so I hope there is going to be 64 bit for windows 7 when it comes out?
When x64 compatibility is introduced it will be valid for all supported OS's except XP. IOW, XP will remain x32 only...
I use Returnil on my XP computer. I will be soooo happy to have it on my newer Vista 64 bit. I hope it happens soon. I hate not having it.
I will be moving all 3 of my computers to Windows7 x64. Hence I will be giving up Returnil. I am sure that there will be quite a few just like me.
I already run Win7 RC1 on my main desktop and I really like it. You have to think that most of those adopting Windows 7, and there will be quite a lot, will be choosing the 64bit version. Most hardware is now 64bit and the 64bit OS will be more mainstream. I fear Returnil will lose a big portion of their base as users will have to choose Returnil or a shiny new Windows version.
Don't be so quick to jump ship just yet. Version 3 is still a beta but we plan to support more OS versions including Win 7 and 64-bit. Stay tuned and have faith - much testing and proving to do yet
I for one am waiting patiently. I am very happy to know that I will be able to install on my 64 bit Vista.
I'm not jumping ship. Once you introduce Win 7 64bit, I'll be back. I still own 2 licenses. I'm just saying that you run the risk of people forgetting Returnil after getting Win7 and then not coming back.
We are covering the Win 7 "gap" at the moment with the LAB version which is based on the 2x generation. It is only compatible though with the 32-bit version, but it does offer an effective alternative for current 2x license holders who have upgraded to that OS.
