    I'll find out the next time I need to uninstall a program. What's the problem with Revo running in Windows 64bit? I've used it a few times and didn't notice any problems.

    I used it the other day while using Win10TP 64bit and there were no issues.

    Maybe it's just the advanced features and not the basic features.

    If you go to their site, you'll see that they state Revo isn't for 64 Bit systems unless you buy the Pro version. From what I understand, it can't do the same thorough job on 64 Bit systems, something to do with their tracking ability during installs. You might want to check their site and see what they say.

    Odd, I installed the uninstaller not too long ago and it works. Revo simply uninstalls things for me.
    Here, it's installed.

    I saw where they say for 64 bit systems you need the pro version of Revo. They don't say why the free version isn't compatible with Windows 64 bit.
    (edit) I just checked their page again. I just noticed it say's "Full 64bit support" I take it that means only the basics of the free version works on a 64bit system.

    I would bet they want the money for the added feature. Most of my apps/programs are still 32bit so that's not a big issue for me, yet.

    Most of my apps are 64 Bit. I use 64 Bit apps to take advantage of the full 12 GB of RAM I have in my desktop and 4 GB I have in my netbook.

    This wis why Microsoft is trying to bring us all over to Modern Apps - to replace the Win32 API system that basically gives and requires indiscriminate access to the filesystem. Modern apps are compartmentalized and register advanced features instead of plopping crap in system folders and the registry.
