While some improvements have been made with Windows 64-bit, the reliability of supported applications cannot be guaranteed. XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX will continue to monitor the adoption of Windows 64-bit and initiate a certification effort once this product receives more vendor support for enterprise business use.

Many of the problems seem to be with IE 8, and we cannot dowgrad to IE 7 on the OS.

Thanks again.
What are they talking about? There aren't even any 64-bit games. Actually, most 64-bit programs are indeed enterprise business level. There's Adobe Photoshop, Java, Oracle database, SQL database, Maya Studio, Lightwave, AutoCAD, video encoding, etc.

Whoever made that "statement" about 64-bit is completely clueless.

I would agree that the problem would be IE8, which is standard on Windows 7. It forces a lot of people to use XP Mode, which has it's flaws.

I would suggest that they merely set up a Windows terminal server and host their legacy software on it. Company employees can use Remote Desktop (RDP) to connect to it and do what they need to do.
