I use X64. When I want to find a program or a setting for a program that I already have, I search through pc forums, Google searches and links to find that there is no mention of X64 for the most part. A person with an x64 os has to wonder if a program that will work for Vista or 2003 server will work in their pc. How about you guys listing x64 in one of your topics or create a new topic for x64?

Other than that, you guys are going a great job!

XP 64-bit isn't in mainstream use, in fact various flavours of Linux are more common than XP 64-bit. It was more of a stopgap to Vista than anything else.
If you need to know whether a program works under 64-bit XP/Vista, the best place to look is not on self-help sites like these but rather the site of the people who made the program.

There are many people who use X64, even though they're not the minority, and these people need help, programs, and a place to turn to when help is needed. It's not right to say that these people should go to Microsoft for this help. This is a computer help site for just about all operating systems, and it's obvioius that people with X64 have no place here. That's the point I'm trying to make.

With all due respect, I didn't mention anything about Microsoft in my first post on this topic.
Anyway, the XP forum usually suffices.

Anyone with any system is welcome here. Many here have the x64 base.

There is a huge forum caled vista x64 as well.Their focus is not just on vista, but on all OS, just like here.

Sorry you feel so frustrated.

I know that everyone is welcome here. I've been here quite often myself. I meant no harm to all the people who give up their time to help other people here. Mine was a suggestion, not a critique. Few places on the internet have links for every os except for XP X64.

I don't feel frustrated and I didn't think that my suggestion would be taken as such.

There is a huge forum caled vista x64 as well.Their focus is not just on vista, but on all OS, just like here.

Would you give me the link to the X64 forum?

Microsoft made Windows and it created XP X64. Since that is the reason for this thread, I don't know what else you could be referring to.


Well, I'm sorry that my suggestion was taken the wrong way.

I did a google for - xp x64 forums and got quite a few hits. They may not be whole forums set up for xp x64 but they do have discussions.

The vista x64 is vistax64.com
It is set up for vista but I have read user posts about xp as well.

Try posting any questions you have in the XP forum here. There are a lot of brain cells firing in here, you might find the answers you seek. :)

I know most of us like to find the answers if we can, so if you post, you will double up on search efforts.
