    Ruirib,

    Where did you find the 64 bit version? I just looked at the NirSoft site and USBDeview is not included on the tab for 64 bit programs.

    Hi RG,

    I found it right below the download link for the 32 bit version, in the USBDeview page linked in the article: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html.

    Regards

    Rui

    Rui,

    Thanks much!

    Interesting that they don't have it on their 64 Bit Page.

    Note, that with WSCC (in your portable software thread) there is an option to download the 64-bit version of the NirSoft utilities if available.

    Joe,

    The only 64-bit reference I could find in the Options menu of WSCC is for the 64-bit version of the Update Manager or am I reading the implication incorrectly? Obviously I was, as I checked it and ran an update and viola all the 64-bit versions. I guess if you want both versions you have to run update twice once w/the option checked and once with it unchecked. Thanks again!

    Update: I tried the USB drive on a Win XP SP-3 machine and the WSCC menu tried to run the 64 bit programs!. I ran update again with the 64 Bit option unchecked then tried the menu and it ran the 32 bit version. I checked and both versions 64 & 32 bit have exactly the same name so the updater can only load one or the other. Looks like I'll have to maintain a separate directory for the 64 bit utilities.

    Maybe you could try contacting the WSCC authors and see if they could change how they handle the 32-bit & 64-bit versions so you could manage both concurrently.
