64-bit XP is basically a Server 2003 OS. CF does not run on Servers.
I understand the underlying code, but it is still picked up as a different system It is not a major issue. I manage about 3500 computers and have a variety of OS's and Server versions that it does come into play. For a quick example, someone had installed 2003 SBS (urgh!!) before I became involved. The new Autocad machines needed all the power and ram they could get. However hooking Win 732 or 64 (but 64 was what I needed here is a huge headache in 2003 SBS and it did not make sense to do all the nonsense that Microsoft forces on you. So XP x64 was the next best bet. It is a compliments to your group that I asked as your product is more useful than the combination of many others. That is all- no real criticism, although the version 12.1.3 of Symantec management Console sees it as XP x64as well as the new Cpuid!

I understand your frustration but please don't take my reply personal. Most Servers are seen in business/corporate environments. The developer of Combofix did not intend for his tool to be used in a business/corporate environment. Per the disclaimer...it was intended for non-commercial purposes only. The unique configuration of systems on a network vary from company to company and running ComboFix can cause unpredictable results. The developer works alone and does not have the time to keep tweaking CF so it works as intended for such environments.
No frustration here. Just a question with an implied compliment. My assumption is that your program reads he OS and has a false/positive for operating systems (simplistic way of saying this)- just curious if you have ever played with what happens on a server when you run Combofix?
Just another little item and has nothing to do with your programming, but Adaware on xp X64 will show running and take about 13% of resources, but never show any GUI or anything on the screen to go further. Adjustment of compatibility ect- does not work either. Just a interesting notation.

What does the future hold for Ad-Aware?
Ad-Aware...have gone into a downhill spiral over the past five years and recently sold the company to Solaria... Majorgeeks stopped listing Ad-Aware as a pick some years ago as we watched the quality of the company slip over the years...it cant stand up to the new generation of anti-spyware applications...
