Have upgraded to SF 10 64bit and having difficulty getting the download to load. Specifically, I receive an error message stating I need to download SR 3 for Win XP 64bit. There are only two SR releases...how do I get around this error message and open up the download?

Thanks, Michael

1. There is not a 64-bit version of SF 10
2. XP 64-bit is not officially supported (not in the system requirements, and is a branch of Server 2003, so it's not surprising)

The installer seems to be confused on which version of Windows you're running, so I don't think it will work for you. Virtual PC running 32-bit XP maybe? That, or upgrade to Windows 7.

Whoa!
Why are you posting exactly the same question on two forums?
Just what are you up to ???

Even MS' Zune software won't run on XP 64-bit. Noboby really writes drivers for it anymore. I loved it (fastest OS I ever had) when I had it, but it's time to move on to something more compatible and current. I'm pretty sure other newer apps won't recognize it.
