Hi sean. On behalf of ViewPlus, I apologize that these drivers are so much
overdue. The blame is ours of course, but Microsoft is not exactly
blameless either. The 64 bit OS are, from point of view of drivers and some
other hardware, totally different from 32 bit OS. So ViewPlus and other AT
companies making various hardware drivers have had to invest a great deal
more resources than I personally find reasonable.

The good news is that the 64 bit Elite/Premier drivers have just been
released, and all others are in final testing (I hope). With luck they will
be rleased next week. In the meantime, ViewPlus support will send you solid
beta drivers if you request them.

Hi all,

Has anyone heard any rumors or discussion from View Plus regarding
64-bit drivers?

I know there is the statement on their website that says "64-bit drivers
coming soon...", but does anyone have additional information?

I am *really* trying to be patient, but it's not like 64-bit versions of
Windows Vista or Windows 7 were just released; they have been out for
many (many) months now. The only response I have received from the
company is that they are aware of this issue.

Take care,
