vista64 - Does adplus/cdb crash dumps still work on Vista 64 Ultimate?

I am doing some research on a asp.net bug. I tried to get adplus to give me a crash dump file from IIS crashing. I have done this in the past on XP machines, but with my current Vista Ultimate setup - the adplus script doesn't spawn the 2nd window with CDB running. I am running the adplus cmd window with admin priviledges.Used Tess's setup instructions and all went ok.

I use virtual machines for these purposes. I've been using Vista 32Bit up until now but I'm considering moving to 64bit to squeeze that little extra ram out of the box.I'd like to hear if anyone has been using 64bit vista under the same circumstances and if anything should hold me back. Have in mind that this is the laptop I use at work....Read more
