NetEdit3 Compatibility with Windows XP 64-Bit
« on: June 14, 2011, 09:54:07 AM »
Hopefully this will be helpful for someone else:

NetEdit3 doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows XP Pro 64-Bit.  Every time I ran the program and selected the [IPX] or [TCP/IP] buttons, the program would crash.  I have other programming software that doesn't work on XPx64, so I have to run these programs in a Virtual Machine running Windows XP Pro 32-bit.  I installed NetEdit3 on the 32-bit Virtual Machine and it worked properly.

Chalk another one up to the joys of having a 64-bit computer!

AndyTBWR, the only things, up to this point we knew about NetEdit with WinXP 64-bit are as follows. We did not have a WinXP 64-bit PC for testing:
  • The IPX/SPX protocol is not available.
  • We did not test NetEdit officially on this OS, but we thought it probably would work.
There are two types of people in the world; those that can extrapolate from incomplete data sets.

No IPX? May just be a protocol error or exception getting thrown. Should be pretty simple to fix. I would think that if the protocol were left as IP, it shouldn't be crashing. Maybe I haven't seen it because I never change from IP...
