unfortunately this is blocked here (Germany):
Unfortunately, this video is not available in your country because it could contain music from SME, for which we could not agree on conditions of use with GEMA.
Sorry about that.

[2014-07-04] #wLinker's target platform to "Any CPU"
« Reply #13 on: July 03, 2014, 11:33 PM »
Does not work on my system. Windows 8.1 x64

I've not tested on x64 machines yet. But I've configured my project's target platform to "Any CPU".
Please re-download and tell me know if you could run it without error message.

Thank you for your report, @c.gingerich.

That is very odd. I tried on my 8.1 x64 desktop and laptop.Both with the same result.

Running as administrator allows it to run on Win8.1.1/x64, but I receive errors such as "index out of bounds" or no results being shown in the search window.

[2014-07-05] Interop.IWshRuntimeLibrary problem
« Reply #20 on: July 04, 2014, 10:13 PM »
I used Interop.IWshRuntimeLibrary for manipulating shortcuts. It seems to work fine on x86 machines.

I've had a search and realised that Interop.IWshRuntimeLibrary does not work on x64 machines.

I found solution here :
http://social.msdn.m...nly?forum=netfx64bit
suggests to use wshom.ocx instead of Interop.IWshRuntimeLibrary

Please someone share me the x64 version of wshom.ocx, which locates in : C:\Windows\SysWOW64\wshom.ocx

Many thanks.
