Any chance of a patch addressing 64 bit operating systems?

Like many others, I run a 64 bit operating system and thus I can't play Kings Bounty.
I've been through all the different possible solutions, so I know there's no patch, DirectX or NVIDIA update or .ini tweak I can do to make it work.

So my question is - will there be a patch to address the issue?

With 3 gb and more RAM becoming increasingly common, the issue must hit a great deal of people...


Edit - Actually, here are some numbers:

So more than 20% of Steam users run a 64 bit operating system. And more than 40% of them have 3 gb and more of RAM.
How about giving the developers a bag of money to fix this? Seems like Kings Bounty is doing pretty well, at least it gets a lot of press and visibility so I can only assume it is. :)

I just bought the game, and I wanted to check. I cannot make it run on Win XP 64.

So you are saying that I am just stuck and I will never be able to get it to run?

Probably, unfortunately.
I had the game running fine until I patched it, so the old version seemed to run with some 64 bit setups. After one of the patches it started crashing in the same way you see described in many threads here. I tried uninstalling and installing again, but it seems it comes prepatched now in the downloadable version, so there's no way I'll get it to play, unless 1C starts recognizing that up to more than 20% of their paying customers won't be able to enjoy what they paid for. Which is a bit unethical and disappointing. And the game is really, really good too, which makes the whole thing even worse.

But write to customer support, they are really helpful and deserve credit, they do try getting it working for you. There's just a big risk it won't ever work, sorry.
