    How do I get a 64 bit version of Windows 7 6956?


    Or will the 6801 build automatically update to Beta 1 when it is released?
    I'm switching back to Windows from Fedora 10 because it won't use my processor fully, can't run Google Chrome, has "authentication" problems, and is just generally a pain. I still have my Vista disk, but why go backwards?!?
    Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!

    You can try build 6936 which is the x64 version, there is no 6956 x64 version that I know of.

    Also, that is the last x64 build that will be released prior to beta.

    And the 6956 was stolen from a computer, so they did not get an x64 copy of it.

    Ah, thanks. Will it be easily updated when the beta is released? And I can run regular windows programs in it (Adobe CS4 in particular) if I run them in compatibility mode, right?

    Oh and what is "Blue Badge rev3" (in your sig)? Is that what unlocks 7?

    Yes, you will need blue badge rev3 for build 6936. Within Windows is the author's site.

    Sorry I didn't see your other post.

    I have not found a single program that would not run NORMAL. I have not even had to use compatibility mode. The only things I know that give problems are programs that did not work on Vista and some AntiVirus/Firewall type programs. Seems that most of us here are using Kaspersky or Avast. Some of the others do not work. And I use Adobe CS4 Master Collection just fine on Win7 build 6936.

    As far as updating, you probably will not be able to update to the beta. There is a chance it will work, but plan for the worst.

    That's alright. I backup my programs often, so as long as this build works, I'm happy. I use NOD32, but I only started using that recently, so I can do with a different one, or none at all, at least for a while. Thanks for all the indepth info! You're awesome! I'll post again when I get it up and running. I have like 30 mins left on the download.

    No problem! And yes I do believe NOD32 is one of the ones that does not work right with win7 so far. Still trying to build a reputation here. I enjoy helping people.
