I can confirm 64Bit functionality of the following.- MyTraffic 5.2- PMDG 747However, patching MyTraffic with the integrated communicator does not work for me, as I havent managed to apply writing rights to the folder.That is no 64Bit but a Vista problem though.

You might want to make a list of addons that DON'T work in 64 bit. There is a huge majority that DO.

The real secret to V64 is NOT using C:\Program Files (x86)\ for installing your app to. If you use something like C:\Program Folders\ instead UAC won't get in the way and none of your files get hidden in the virtual store. If you do install to C:\Program Files (x86)\ all you have to do is turn off UAC (which is a good idea anyway) and create a shortcut to the virtual store files, so that you can access files faster.
