Hail! I'm looking for the ZoomIt program for Windows XP 64 bit OS. I have found lots of sites that host the program and claim it is compatible with my OS, such as the following:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb897434.aspx

But none of them work. When I run ZoomIt.exe an error pops up that says "Error launching 64-bit version: (null)" While this message appears an additional file called ZoomIt64.exe appears in the same directory and if I run it I get this error message "C:\...ZoomIt64.exe is not a valid Win32 application."

I tried rebooting in safe mode and installing it, with identical results.

Has anybody successfully used this program on my OS? Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can get it to work? Thank you!

Same issue.  Have been searching for a resolution on/off for a couple of years now.  Anything yet Bycote?

Hello, As I understand the 64 bit unpacking can have issues when your group security policy prevents the file extraction.  Doing a google search found that one person suggested the following:

ZoomIt - Error launching 64-bit version: This program is blocked by your group policy.

Zoomit doesn't work on a 64-bit machine with certain group policy settings.
In my situation, when you run the downloaded zoomit.exe, it tries to create a 64-bit version in the folder specified by the TEMP variable. This is blocked by group policy.

Changing the TEMP variable to C:\Temp1 fixed the problem.
