Has anyone been able to install the Vista Windows AIK on a 64 bit system?

It appears that the WAIK DVD contains both x64 and x32 bit versions and installs the x64 bit on 64-bit systems’.

AISBackup is a 32 bit system and runs on WOW64 (Windows-on-Windows 64-bit) so therefore looks to the Program Files (x86) folder when looking for C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\pesetenv.cmd, however if you manually open the file from Program Files AISBackup proceeds to create a 32 bit version of the AISBackup Restore CD.

The next version of AISBackup (which I hope is uploaded soon) has instructions for using AISBackup with the Vista set-up DVD – I have found that this does not work at all with the 64 bit version of the set-up DVD so the only option is to either ‘borrow’ a 32-bit set-up DVD or create a 32-bit AISBackup restore DVD.

I have created an AISBackup Restore DVD unter Vista 64-bit and am in the process of restoring to a new unformatted disk (another new feature of AISBackup is to create and format disk partitions on unformatted disk space). Once this has completed I’ll post back with the result.

It is intended to support this new functionality in AISBackup with web-based tutorials.

The problem I am having Barry is that I can not get the WAIK to install. When i run the setup, I get an error indicating I have the wrong version.

Whoops, ignore my last reply Barry. I misinterpreted your response.
