Windows 7: Thinking about moving to Windows 7 64 bit

Ok, it's installed and everything is working nicely. I've gotten all the drivers I need installed and I'm working on getting all the current Windows Updates installed. So, everything went pretty smoothly. Thanks for all the help everyone!

Ok, I've gotten past the initial driver setup phase. Now I'm at the point where I'm reinstalling software. For one thing, I downloaded and installed Firefox 4. It tends to lock up quite a bit when I use it... I downloaded Nightly (Firefox 6 alpha) 64 bit version, and it runs like a charm. The only problem is that Flash is 32 bit, and as far as I'm aware, the 64 bit version "Square" is pretty old.

I've also had this problem installing Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (for Sony Vegas 8); it runs into something called Error 1935. I've Googled it, and that didn't seem to help much. Any tips here? Again, I greatly appreciate all the help from you guys.

Perhaps you should start a separate thread here to see if anyone there has any info.
