I've got a nice new Boxxtech 64-bit AMD system that I'm trying to get LW 8.5 to run on. I've installed both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and I'm having lousy luck with both, although the 64-bit version is the least happy.

It's hard to pin down exactly what's happening, although it seems to be primarily a memory problem--I've got 4GB of RAM so it really shouldn't be a problem, but I get constant "Couldn't allocate memory" flags, and just as constant suddent quitting or "program not responding" things, with the one constant being a "Machine Check Error" warning popping up in the system tray when things go south.

Sooooo, it looks to me like Windows XP 64-bit version is still, shall we say, a "work in progress" and if I wnt to get anything done, I need to go to XP 32-bit ASAP.

If anyody knows or has experienced something like this and has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.
