    Have been able to get ATI 2009 to install in the 32 bit version, not the 64 bit version.
    Anybody been able to do so, and if so, how?
    I tried using the Troubleshooter Wizard - no luck.
    I do have it installed in Vista 64 bit.

    I have it installed in Vista Home Premium 32 bit
    I have it installed in Vista Ultimate 64 bit
    I have it installed in Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.

    I guess it meets all requirements, unless I missed something.

    the driver is not signed and the installer probably does a check for this and will not install it. Most x64 software that will not install is due to the drivers not working on x64 Win7 because of the version number.

    Thanks - I have tried everything I can think of to get it to install in the 64 bit version - no luck. It is the only program I cannot get to install in the 64 bit version.

    Is there away around this?

    Nope. Couldn't get it to install. I tried Acronis Echo Server and that somehow corrupted my drive...couldn't even install Windows afterward. Eventually restored my Vista image and fixed it.

    I'm running Symantec Backup Exec on Win7 x64 now...works great.
    Also, Norton 360 beta 3 installs perfectly on Win7, but it's not Symantec Endpoint, that's for sure.

    Even tho ATI install properly i don't even know if it could restore your current backup that you made it ATI properly. If i were you i would make two backup in case one in ATI and one with window full backup. Than try to restore it using ATI to see if it could restore it properly. I remember when Vista first came out and i was using ATI on vista but it didn't restore my backup properly so now i'm just sticking with window full backup.

    The other alternative is to boot with the Acronis recovery cd, and do the backup from there. I've used this method many times.
