    I've downloaded an evaluation of Acronis TrueImage Workstation, primarily so that I can see if it works on my 64 bit system.

    I'm running Win XP Pro 64 bit on an AMD 64 bit processor machine.

    During the installation, an error comes up indicating that it cannot find the file timntr_2k.sys in the Temp directory. I checked in the Temp directory and noticed that there was a timntr.amd64.sys (spelling might be wrong) file in the directory. I renamed the above file to timntr_2k.sys and subsequently had the same problem with the file tifsfilt.sys (there was a tifsfilt.amd64.sys file in its place).

    Anyway, after renaming both files in the Temp directory the installation proceeded and completed successfully.

    Whilst rebooting however, I had an error - pointing to a possibly corrupt timntr.sys file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\.

    At that point, the only way forward was for me to Load Last Known Good Configuration.

    The application seemed to still be there but when running it I get and Application Module Error with the following error message.

    "Cannot find the necessary Acronis TrueImage Workstation modules. Please reinstall....."

    Can you confirm if TrueImage will work on a 64 bit system and if there's any way I can get around this to hopefully evaluate it?

    If you need any further details please let me know.
