    I have not seen any action for a long time here. No commits etc.
    Is this project dead?

    I think it's completely dead. No commit for many years although with win7 64bit it stops working.
    If you place your app into program files directory, you won't be able to access your directory for RW operations…

    What do you think is the best alternative? my application is used by thousands of people now so I'll absolutely need to find one…

    Commercial Exe4J (but very expensive).
    I plan to try WinRun4J http://winrun4j.sourceforge.net/

    As for win7 64bit Launch4J works fine, if you are having problems I would think this is cause by trying to access 64-bit native librarys from Java such as SWT, while having only 32-bit java installed or vice versa. (If you are having a different problem then please report a bug) As for no RW operations in the program files directory this is a security feature of both Windows Vista and 7, you can read from this directory but you should not be writing here. All user data should be writing to the Appliction data directory.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    @Tim: If I would use regular java -jar xxx.jar to launch my application inside program files directory, i wouldn't be restricted to write into program's folder.
