coLinux is using kernel drivers and so it can't run under the WoW64 mode. A 64-bit version of colinux would be very cool but AFAIK there is no version atm because of the damn f... "signed driver" situation. I don't understand why this isn't a case at a court...

Hi there,

I was just trying to install coLinux 0.7.4 on a Vista 64Bit Pc... but
sadly the installer aborts because of 64 Bit :( !

So i was a little bit frustrated,.. why can't I force the installation?

I'm using ReadyDriverPlus to run unsigned Drivers with Vista 64Bit... so
that shouldn't be the problem!

Afaik, all non 64Bit software runs in 32bit emulation mode on x64 CPU's,
is there an option to force installation on 64bit systems? Could someone
provide such an installer? I want to give it a try! :)

Have a nice day,
