RocketDock is a 32bit app, and 64bit systems store it in the Program Files x86 folder and run it fine with 32bit emulation.

RocketDock worked on every x64 install of mine

As Mr GRiM rightly said they do work on x64 - although that is not a guarantee that they will on any particular system.

Yup, I know so I won't even bother with it.

If you get it to work you run it. If you don't you don't. Like I was mentioning before I took it off of the 32bit 7 here while finding it useful on XP and Vista to replace the older quick launch bar seen on them.

The new taskbar seen in 7 solves the problem of having a desktop full of shortcuts without the actual need for a 3rd party addon to start with. That's the way I have to look at it.

I have just discovered rocketdock and I must admit so far it's more stable than windows 7

I now have it installed on my laptop running XP and my daughters PC running vista 32 bit and on my main running vista 64 bit and win 7 version 7057 64 bit , only one minor detail is it doesn't respect instances of notepad and World of Warcraft , otherwise it's excellent

Sorry to hear the 7057 build isn't far more stable then an addon toolbar. The 32bit 7000 build has certainly proved it is!
