64 bit compatibility of the "Windows Certified" version


Blaze

Question

According to some of the documentation I'm reviewing, Certified for Vista means that the product must be fully compatible with the 64 bit version as well. Can anyone confirm this ? And has anyone tried the latest version on the 64 bit platform ?

Really? I wouldn't think that that would be the case, unless maybe it said it was Vista 64 certified.

 

Is Vista 64 bit even Vista certified? :blink::lol:;):lol::blink:

The system requirement only lists XP64 though.

There's probably another certification program for Vista64.

That's exactly what I was exactly referring to. Also similar info on start64.com. I'm moving to 64 bit by the end of the year if not sooner. Pf course it would be nice if Roxio was compatible with Vista 64. My system can handle up to 8GB of DDRII RAM and I'm thinking 6GB should be adequate.
