Installing TB on 64-bit Vista

Hello all - especially new students having these issues right now.

I've been getting a lot of email about issues with installing TB on 64-bit operating systems - which is to say, Vista. Two recommended solutions:

1. Install TB on a regular 32-bit OS machine, then copy the files to the 64-bit machine.

2. Use a Virtual PC program like Microsoft Virtual PC ( This is a free download, and works well with Windows OS's. You may be able to use the virtual machine to run the installation and THEN operate TB normally under the straight 64-bit OS, or you may have to run TB strictly within the virtual machine.

One of these should work for you - I will post anything else I find out about this.

Please post any results you have here.
