ViEmu (and Codekana) in VS2008 on Vista X64

Someone asked about whether ViEmu would work fine with the new VS2008 in a 64-bit environment. I just tested it today, and it works just fine. The installer complained about a failed operation at the end, with Vista whining about it “requiring elevation”, but I just clicked ok, started VS2008, and ViEmu was there fine. I’m still quite puzzled with Vista’s byzantine and seemingly useless security mechanisms. Hopefully I’ll understand them better as time passes. But meanwhile, all of my products seem to work fine under both Vista x86 and Vista x64. Drop me a line if anything causes trouble.
