Mel Scripts on XP64

In case anyone has ran into some weirdness with scripts breaking on WinXP 64, check into this: 

 

 The script might have an OS check in it, due to differences between OS’s displaying UI’s and such.  This uses the mel command `about –os;`.  Historically, windows has always reported (xp and 2k) this as “nt”.  In xp64 however, it gets reported as “win64”.  So, a script looking for “nt” won’t necessarily know what to do with “win64”. 

 

 

Just an FYI for those making the 64 bit switch…
