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:
