[filmscanners] Re: SS4000 & SCSI under Vista



This may be an issue how how Vista is marketed in the UK. In the US,
there is Vista Ultimate, which comes with 64 bit vista. A few version of
32 bit Vista allow the purchase of the 64 bit edition.

In my case, I have X64, which I suppose you could call X64 XP. Microsoft
calls is
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/default.mspx

All this gets more confusing when you consider retail versus OEM
versions. Anyway, X64 is not Vista.
