Installer x64 info popup outdated

Post by Vyeleas on Sun Jul 10, 2016 5:43 am

Hello there,

When installing with 1225_Basic, there is an info popup near the beginning of the install program when you tick the checkbox to install only x64, stating an outdated message that even on current versions of Windows, WMP is only offered in x32. On Windows 7, this is false.

Hope you appreciate me bringing this to your attention,
Vyeleas

The message says that x64 Windows uses the 32-bit WMP by default, which is correct. It contains both 32-bit and 64-bit WMP. The codec pack has the ability to make the 64-bit WMP default.

Ah, on a second readthrough of the message I see that now. I would contend though, that this is indicative that the message is a bit ambiguous; perhaps if you simply added at the end in parentheses (though a 64-bit version is included as well), that would clear up the issue.

The bit about WMP will probably be removed completely. Older versions were not able to set 64-bit WMP as default. Back then the warning was more relevant.
