Subject: Re: FR in XP Mode ?

Date: Sat, 24 Apr 2010 19:59:16 +0200

It's quite possible that it could work. It all comes down to the simple fact that 32-bit processes can't interact with 64-bit processes. If dopus is 32-bit then it would have to interact with 32bit Explorer (where FR is registered if it has been successful). At least that sounds reasonable to me. But I can't promise it will work.
