    Remove the version check from NeoSmart TweakUI 64-bit 2.2

    NeoSmart's TweakUI 64-bit 2.2 works on Windows 7 64-bit and Vista 64-bit if you create a shim using the Compatibility Administrator tool in Application Compatibility Toolkit. Here's the proof: http://i.imgur.com/7Pjxh7f.png But Microsoft broke GetVersionEx in Windows 8 so that shim no longer...

    64-bit version of a little app

    And I am not saying steal the author's work either, I never said that. I thought Neosmart reverse engineered the PowerToys (and reverse engineering is legal AFAIK). I didn't know NeoSmart worked with Microsoft (or the developers of the PowerToys) to re-create the powertoys. :) Consider this...

    64-bit version of a little app

    Was the PowerToys code played in the public domain? Was it reverse engineered and ported to 64-bit or a Neosmart created a perfect clone of the 32-bit version?

    64-bit version of a little app

    How did NeoSmart create a 64-bit version of TweakUI? Similarly, can you create a 64-bit version of this essential tool I use on Windows 7 called Network Activity Indicator: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Network-Tools/Network-Information/Network-Activity-Indicator.shtml The author's site appears...

    I wish you'd make TweakUI compatible with Windows 7

    Hey if you download Application Compatibility Toolkit and set TweakUI to run in Server 2003 SP1 compatibility mode, it runs. Of course, some tweaks don't apply any more to Windows 7 but whatever tweaks are still applicable still work. You also have to run it as admin. Admin+2003 compatibility...

    Background Switcher would definitely need 64-bit native as it adds a Property sheet/tab to the XP Display Properties. I just tried installing the old PowerToys pack on XP x64 by removing the check from the MSI using Orca. Super Fast User Switcher installs a service apprarently. It runs properly...

    Okay. But just asking to know, you had native 64-bit binaries of all powertoys earlier but lost them because of the server crash??? Because TweakUI is already native 64-bit!! Also note that Background Switcher and Super Fast User Switcher were pulled by Microsoft shortly after they were...

    Okay I spoke too soon. I had forgotten that I was using the 32-bit Explorer shell on XP x64 and the VDM only works with that. If I start the 64-bit Explorer.exe, then naturally the VDM doesn't appear as a taskband. So I need only 64-bit native versions of those that don't work: 64-bit VDM...

    The Introduction Thread

    Hello all, I know NeoSmart's website for several years now but never registered on the forums. I found it several years ago while searching for Neowin. The tools Neosmart give away for free like ToolTipFixer, EasyBCD, 64-bit TweakUI, iReboot are so great. I am still an XP fanboy and I *still*...

    Oops but they don't seem to be 64-bit versions (the ones I got from internet archive).

    But where can I get all of them? I will surely try to stick around in the forums more. The tools from Neosmart are all great. Btw, TweakUI 64 should work on 64-bit Vista/7 right if run elevated and in Server 2003 compatibility mode? Edit: I grabbed all the powertoys from...

    Yes the VDM works FANTASTICALLY PERFECT on my XP Professional x64 edition. I am a greedy Windows fanboy so I would love any tools and goodies you have ported to 64-bit!!!!!!! I am also beyond shocked (pleasantly) how perfect the 64-bit TweakUI is! Can't notice ANY difference from the 32-bit...
