So far on my system I have had the following Vista Versions

Vista Ultimate x86
Vista Business x64

I'm getting ready to try out:

Vista Ultimate x64 wSP1

I have 4GB RAM, hence the need to use x64.

At work I run Vista Business x64 (also a 4GB RAM Machine) and absolutely cannot get DesktopX to even say hello.

So, as of right now..

What Stardock apps DO NOT work with Vista Ultimate x64?

If they don't work, when will they?

FYI - DesktopX Pro does NOT work with Vista x64. As soon as I launch it I receive an error box that dxwidget.exe has stopped working. Here are the problem details.

When will DX Pro be compatible with x64 Vista?

Iconpackager does not fully work...most of my icons do not show up.

This might be a better question for Support rather than the community at large.  There are so many factors on a users PC that might prevent an app from running correctly

I also submitted a help desk ticket yesterday.  
However I don't see an issue with posing the question to all.
I've personally tried DesktopX Pro on 2 different systems, each running an x64 flavor of Vista. It obviously doesn't work and I wanted a general consensus before I bother mucking up my registry with known non-working apps.
Perhaps a sticky post from Stardock announcing on a periodic basis what is and is not x64 ready would spare the need for us to ask every so often.

IconPackager does work for Vista 64bit. SoIgspence you should also submit a ticket as it is likely a issue we could correct for you.
