    I've read a fair deal in here of late about XP 64 bit.

    Regarding drivers, everything bar my scanner installed perfectly. I have a
    cd on order with HP for the scanner. I'll wait to see if it cures the problem.

    I have several software applications, all installed without problem
    including Office 2000, Macromedia Dreamweaver and Flash MX, Microsoft Flight
    Simulator, JASC Paint Shop Pro 8, they all run fine.

    IE caused a problem running Flash, until I realised using the 32 bit version
    shipped with XP 64+ worked fine.

    The only problem I have is IIS not accessing Access 2000 databases on the
    local pc, but the bottom line is it's not a perfect world and development
    does take some time. Hopefully, sometime, a guru in here can assist me to
    solve the IIS problem.

    All said and done Microsoft do an excellent job with software development,
    as do many other development companies. I do wish they could provide a little
    more support given they no longer provide manuals and there's little
    information in technets or the knowledge base regarding XP 64+.

    $300AUD is quite a gamble whether the problem is mine or there's.....

  2. You can buy books off Amazon.com that teach you how to use Windows XP
    thoroughly. With Access 2000 and IIS, not until a supported Jet Database
    update arrives will you able to use it.

    I would post to this newsgroups to find out their plans about it:

    Thanks Andre

    I don't mind waiting. Rome wasn't built in a day and I can work around the

    Be nice to know there may be a solution in the pipe line tho.

    No problem buying books in lieu of higher price software. Just don't want to
    keep buying the wrong book!
