      Windows XP X64 Edition supported ?

      I run the 64-bit version of Windows XP Professional. Does anyone know if this is supported ? The web-site check requirements bit says I don't appear to have XP installed.... But I can downlaod the application

      Also - .NET 1.1
      Is this required when you already have later versions installed ? Seems bizarre

      I can't imagine there'd be any problem with an ethernet connection as the router doesn't care what OS the computer is running.

      Could be a driver problem with installing a wireless adapter, but I have no experience of XP 64 -- so that's conjecture.

      Not sure you understood - My sky broadband connection indeed works perfectly under XP X64 edition - as you say the O/S is irrelevant really

      The question was in relation the the Sky Anytime software - will it install and run ?

      Oh well - I gave it a go, and at the end of the Microsoft .NET 1.1 framework install it gave an error message about a missing file, and then aborted. So, Sky Anytime on Windows XP X64 edition is not possible
