Yeah, 32bit version of icechat works fine in vista 64 but maybe some day :) ... of course it mean more job (lot or a little bit? I don't know icechat sourcecode so you know :P) update 2 different version allways .. so i understand if you do not compile 64bit version :) and of course it is depend from compiler.. but wish :P

Well, I tell you what.

Buy me a 64bit Machine and copy of Vista, and I will gladly make you a 64bit version.

Harsh, why would you already be using vista anyway? I couldn't get half my stuff to work with it so I just went back to using wine.

Not much choice, when stores don't offer to let you buy XP.
And I have fixed almost all my issues with Vista anyways.

But yes, no 64bit version, unless I have a 64bit machine. IceChat 8, will let you have source, so then you could compile it yourself.

I have no idea what the computer market looks like in everyone's local areas, but there are a lot of small computer stores that are hoarding copies of windows XP (and XP pro) due to the demand on them. Just make sure you don't buy it at a swap meet, those guys are really good at making the package look like it was never opened and the CD looks pretty convincing as well.

Yes, but finding these machines with 64 Bit versions of Windows is not likely. It is not a commonly used OS.

as much as I don't encourage such things, there is a pretty wide pirate userbase. maybe it will catch up in time.

Well, considering that Visual Basic 6 has no support for 64-bit, nor will it ever, it does not look like there will be a native x64 version of IceChat.

A shame, but for my time restrictions as of late, I simply do not have the time nor resources to write a totally new version of IceChat (8) from scratch, so I will just continue on from my current source code, and make changes and additions to it. The program does work, sure it has a few quirks because it is written in this archaic language, but I have made the best of it.
