I would like to share that SDL development team has managed to "iron out" the problems preventing MultiTerm 2009 to work on Vista 64 and Windows 7 64-bit, the only SDL Studio 2009 feature still refusing to work OK on 64-bit Windows systems.

I don't know how long it will take for them to prepare and publish a hotfix at SDL Support (Talisman).

Of course those systems must have all Windows service packs and DotNet updates applied...

Regards

Edric

Hi Edric

I don't quite understand: You say SDL has managed to iron out the problems preventing MultiTerm 2009 from running on 64bit operating systems, but then you say you don't know when the hotfix will be made available.

Will the currently released version of Multiterm 2009 work on 64bit systems or not?
Thanks for you help.

Hi Lutz

First, remember that SDL explicitly declares that there's no support for 64-bit systems at the moment. So, officially, neither Studio nor MTerm is guaranteed to work on 64-bit systems, neither did previous versions. But Freelance 2006 and Freelance 2007 did work, although sometimes you had to fumble with DotNet Framework service packs

Nevertheless, SDL is working on the issues that may prevent the product to work on those systems (XP 64, Vista 64 and Windows 7 64): incidentally, I briefly beta-tested SDL Studio, and indicated what was going wrong on my Vista 64 and Win 7 64 systems, patch after patch I received from them. After some trials, those patched applications finally worked. But they are direct patches, and you have to do some work to apply.

Those patches are not fixes, but a compatibility modification to make Studio and MT2009 work on 64-bit systems. I really don't know when SDL will have that patch ready to be released, since it involves QA and more testing...

Regards

Edric
