- Improved startup error message
ASAP Utilities does not (yet) support the 64-bit edition of Excel 2010.
Besides a warning about this during the installation, the program will now also tell you this when you start ASAP Utilities in Excel 2010 64-bit (instead of giving an error message).
Just to be clear, ASAP Utilities does work with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.
At this moment we don't have a short-term planning for a 64-bit version of ASAP Utilities. This is due to the fact that we would most likely have to completely rewrite the program in order to keep it secure (from Visual Basic to MS Visual Studio), which costs a lot of time and money and such a solution wouldn't work with Excel 2000, 2002/XP and 2003 anymore. This requires us to maintain and publish two versions of ASAP Utilities.
Furthermore, there seem to be only very few people that require the 64-bit edition of Excel 2010 instead of the 32-bit edition of Excel 2010. Most people might think that the 64-bit version is faster, but it isn't. The main advantage is that you can use Excel workbooks that are over 2GB (2 gigabyte!) in the 64-bit edition.
