    Hello!

    I'm having problems with the Private Character Editor and Windows
    Vista 64 Bit.

    For more information about the Private Character Editor take a look
    at http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/privchar.htm

    I can create characters using eudcedit.exe, but I can't access them
    with character map. This is strange, because it's working fine with
    both Windows XP and the 32 Bit version of Vista.

    Does anybody know why Vista 64 Bit doesn't diplay the new characters
    in charmap.exe?

  2. where does Private Character Editor save the characters? Remember that
    32-bit and 64-bit programs have a different view of the file system.

    Charlie,
    And there are also two "charmap.exe" files, one 64-bit and another one
    32-bit located in their corresponding system32 and syswow64 folders
    respectively.

  4. And clearly, they aren't seeing the data from each other...

    Hi,

    I can display the private characters with the combination of
    ALT-key + Unicode (typed on the keypad). This does work.

    But the entry "All fonts(private characters)" isn't there in
    character map on the 64 Bit system.It's there on both XP
    and the 32 Bit Vista.

  6. Try running the 32-bit version of charmap.exe using
    c:\windows\syswow64\charmap.exe.
