Not really according to the above but will give it a go. I suppose it does say 'not supported' and will not work with.

Hi All,

this is often the case with x64 programs that the designers haven't actually used on x64 and as you say it may well work.

@ Airbot,

If Shawn says it works then I would say it works
and the cat has a habit of jumping on the keyboard and pressing various keys including the power off key (have it set to "sleep" so it's not a total loss

I'm in x64 now and I'm using it...

It just gets installed into your (x86) folder.

Many thx guys for all your help on this.

I am now using ObjectDock Plus on my Vista Ultimate x64 and it seems OK. Will install it to Win 7000 Beta tomorrow.

Yeah I see no reason why either would not function just like any other x86 program on x64.
