Hello!
 
I have Vista Home 64-Bit. When I start PageDefrag.exe as admin I get an error message:
 
"Make sure that you are an adminstrator. Error loading PageDefrag driver."
 
What do I make or what is wrong?

Thank you.
I found nothing about OS platforms.
But where can I read OS preferences of sysinternals tools?

Each utility has a page on the Technet / Sysinternals site that lists the platforms the utility supports.
 
The Sysinternals Utilities Index has a link for the page for each utility.

I have the same error on Windows XP 64-bit, so I'd say it is not Vista specific.

I also tested it with Windows 2003 64-bit and found the same problem.

I have Windows Server 2008 Beta 3 64-bit and it has the same problem.  So it seems to be a 64-bit OS problem only.

Problem for me too, as above using xp64

---

just read on the individual exe link it's not for xp64 so that'd explain that then

Any chance of clustering the suite in 32 bit and 64 bit groupings?

Hi elguido,

To my mind, it's not necessarily that straightforward - some 32-bit utils will work just fine on an x64 system (e.g. sigcheck), but may not work at all in an environment in which WOW64 isn't present.  Some utils are 32-bit, but bundle a 64-bit binary as a resource, that may be used when the 32-bit version detects it is running on an x64 system.  If the 32-bit group would include all utils that didn't have a 64-bit component, and the 64-bit group would include all utils that did have a 64-bit component, then people would still wonder what 32-bit utils may be used on x64, or may think that a util cannot be run on x64.

This seems related...
Runs On in download box:
Quote If itís not stated, you should expect the tool to run on both 32 and 64-bit versions. If it does state 32-bit for example, then that means it runs on 32-bit only and not on 64-bit. RootkitRevealer is an example of this.
