That's why you can set admin permissions and place it on C:

I have just uploaded new build of the MMB64 utility which seems to be a bit stable than previous, try it if you have experienced MMB hanging on startup even if launched by MMB64 - hope it is eliminated now.

Download link is in initial post, file is uncompressed.

Great ! :D
I was searching desperately for a solution with virtual PC or a LINUX XP emulator... but found me in a dead end. :?
I thought that all my MMB programs were going to disappear with the rare PC with XP left (I had a lot of problems trying to run MMB with the first version of MMB64 on computers with Windows 7 or 10) :(
Thanks a lot

Thanks for the feedback!

Another build is up:
‒ Improved document appearance (rulers are displaying correctly right after document open).
‒ Now launcher should work better in Windows 10. (It seems that MMB itself does not work correctly with "Only one instance of designer" option in Windows 10 (at least in my copy of Windows 10) - as result there are situations when only one designer window is displayed, but there are several "ghost" MMBuilder.exe instances running in the list of processes. This happens even if you do not use MMB64, but use reduced color mode. To fix it MMB 64 terminates all MMBuilder.exe processes on exit.)

Let me know if there is any problem.

Hi Jimmy,
always glad to see you, everything is fine, thank you! Hope your doing well too. :)

I rarely appear here just polished some old code and posted results here (there are several days in a year when it is better to sit at home than to wander along the street ;) ). Now I'm more passionate about photography than programming (in fact, I'm not really interested in programming at the moment, but sometimes it's still fun to dig in the lines).

Dgilmour,
Glad you and your family are doing well. I bet you are as good as photographer as you are a programmer. With the advent of digital photography, it is "fun" to use software to improve picture quality or merely remove random objects in the background , etc. As a kid, I learned to develop film negatives and slides---wow, times have sure changed. Take care and all the best!! JimmyC

You can check it by clicking link in my profile ;) And even more pictures in my flickr photostream.

Film is still alive, and I also want to try film in my hobby, I like the feeling of stopped time and special colors it produce.

Dgilmour,
Hey, I was correct...I have looked at some of your pictures and you are a talented individual. It was great to catch-up with you and hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Take care,
