    I used to absolutely love this application for building xml sitemaps. Much to my dismay, it wont work properly on a 64-bit OS. The program installs and even opens..then nothing. It just won't crawl I have tried all possible settings, installing it under 2 different 'Program Files' folders, run as administrator, dbl. checked that me firewalls not restricting it, searched forums...no luck!

    NE advice on a sitemap builder/crawler that DOES work on Vista with 64-bit OS?

    Thanks!

    I found so many of the apps I loved didn't work on this peice of shit vista. I just installed vmware and run a virtual xp and have all my apps on that.

    Windows 7 has a "Run as windows XP mode", based on virtual PC

    The GSiteCrawler site still does not show Vista or Windows 7 as a "required OS".

    Can anyone verify that they successfully use this on Windows 7 without running in XP Mode?
