The Ultimate Enterprise System Management Software for Windows - Added support for Windows Vista (32 & 64-bit) - DameWare NT Utilities (DNTU) is an enterprise system management application for Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista which allows Administrators to go beyond the limitations of Microsoft's Management Console (MMC).
Dependency Walker is a free utility that scans any 32-bit or 64-bit Windows module (exe, dll, ocx, sys, etc.) and builds a hierarchical tree diagram of all dependent modules. For each module found, it lists all the functions that are exported by that module, and which of those functions are actually being called by other modules. Another view displays the minimum set of required files, along with detailed information about each file including a full path to the file, base address, version numbers, machine type, debug information, and more.

Advanced COM Port Redirector is a professional Windows application that allows you to redirect all data sent from one serial port to any other serial port no matter whether first port is virtual or real one. Second port, created by this program, is an absolute copy of the first communication port (except its name) and is located on the same computer.
Windows Media Encoder 9 Series x64 Edition is a powerful tool for content producers who want to take advantage of the many innovations in Windows Media 9 Series including high-quality multichannel sound and high-definition video quality on x64 platforms.
The aim of our present article is to share our experience relating to the installation of the 64-bit version of Windows Vista RC1 as well as the creation of a secure testing environment.
In our previous articles we went into the details of the advantages offered by 64-bit computers, the present state of the 64-bit architecture, as well as the prerequisites for creating a suitable environment for testing 64-bit operating systems. This latter required existing hardware 64-bit capabilities. In this article we would like to help those who wish to upgrade their existing 32-bit computers into 64-bit ones.
There are people who can hardly wait to upgrade to it, while others already fear its novelty. There are people who expect an improvement in quality, while others do not make full use even of the existing capacities. There are people who use technical aspects as arguments, while others think that those mean-spirited marketing people have cooked up something again to get the money out of their pockets. Who is right? Who will benefit from the 64-bit technology, and who will not? After all, what is 64-bit?
Considering the present status of informatics, it is not worth using a computer without running some basic security programs. The issue of security even more pronounced in the case of complex systems. The main point is that even the smallest IT system component is practically useless if you do not use some security solution. In other words: in practice, IT systems and workstations will prove equally useless without anti-virus protection. In this article we will review the current status of 64-bit anti-virus protection.
Windows x64 offers 32-bit compatibility on user software level. It does not support 16-bit software any more. In terms of changeover, this is a similar situation as it was in case of the 32-bit changeover. This situation is, however, better by one aspect: now, compatibility of a new operating system is highly extendable by means of virtualisation. Although the original purpose of virtualisation, of course, was not the extension of compatibility, it is still a very good, often the only possibility to do it.
Last time we tested security software providing any kind of a solution on the x64 platform. The test left some uncertainty regarding the extent of compatibility. In this additional test we make sure about compatibility.
The appropriate version of Total Commander runs perfectly on all Windows operating systems including 16-bit, 32-bit and Pocket PC platforms - but the 64-bit versions. Why does Total Commander not support 64-bit Windows, what issues does this raise, and what can we do? New: Total Commander 64bit version
Recently, I have read several articles analysing the current penetration of 64-bit systems and considering what can be expected in the future. There are many contrasting viewpoints here, and the conclusions reached also differ greatly. I see the place and opportunities of 64 bits from a somewhat different perspective; I think 64-bit computing today is in the position of gradual transition before a comprehensive break-through that is going to be inevitable as a result of technical progress.
The Redistributable Package of the .NET framework contains everything necessary for running the applications developed under the .NET framework. Many 64-bit programs require the .NET framework; this setup package needs to be downloaded only once, and afterwards it can be installed on as many computers as necessary.
