64-bit Version now available
« on: February 20, 2010, 03:36:42 AM »
I have now released a version of Circle Dock that is specific to 64-bit Intel/AMD platforms.


Read this carefully before downloading and installing

This version is very much a test version and should be treated with caution. The code-base used to create this release is identical to that for the (32-bit) v1.54 which I released the other day so should work the same. However, those of you who have experienced problems with the Mouse Toggling when running under 64-bit Windows 7 should notice an improvement; I have had a 64-bit version running here almost all day, with varying lengths of "hidden" time, and mouse toggling is certainly working for me.

Certain things may NOT work, for example, there may be a problem with Folder Stacks - so, be warned!

After installing Circle Dock, you should right-click on its entry in the Start Menu and select "Properties" and from the "Compatibility" Tab, check "Run as Administrator", then click on "Apply" and then "OK". This will prevent any UAC issues.

Please report any issues with this release as replies to this topic.

The download link is contained within this topic.

Works great!!! It's bit faster :D To me, no problem with Folder Stacks but I have UAC disabled.
p.s. I try -show also in this 64bit release but don't work  :(
Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.

The -show command worked sometimes, but only then on a true 32-bit platform. I've now fixed it (for the next release) and it is working reliably (for me!).

On a 64-bit platform the 64-bit version should be faster as there's no 32-bit emulation involved.

Trip out I just tried the 64 bit the other night.I was very impressed on the memory usage it used like a 1,000k compared to Rocketdock's 5 t0 10,000 k .I liked the look of it a lot. It kept bugging out a bit and didn't want to save settings.I'll have to try it out again now that I know theres a help forum here  :)
