NexRemote for 64 bit?
      #5529721 - 11/20/12 10:03 AM

I'm pretty sure my laptop is on its way out and have been shopping for a replacement. From what I've read, NexRemote will not work on a 64 bit OS... I've become very attached to driving my CGEM this way and wondered if anyone knew if C has any intention of releasing a 64 bit version. Or is there a way I can make it work with Win7/64 bit...
I know there's probably about as much hope for this, as there is for C to upgrade all of their RS232 requirements...

Just curious.

I run it on my HP Pavilion just fine, drives the CG-5 if that makes any difference. It's original load was Win 7 Premium 64bit and it worked fine for 2 years. I'm now on Win 8 Pro w/ MediaCenter 64bit (installed and emulating Win 7) and it seems to work fine.

Been running fine on my Win 7 Pro 64 for 2 years now. Celestron shows for all windows 32 and 64 bit versions.

EXCELLENT!! Now that I read the fine print on Celestrons site it says it won't run on Vista (but what would?)...
Thanks for the responses.
