  • Does anyone have Hyena running on x64 Windows 7?

    I'm intereseted to see if anyone has been running Hyena (We're using 7.7c) on a x64 Windows 7 OS. We've struggled with it and are curious is anyone has it runing, with full AD integration.

    We have a system on order to test Windows 7 on, as right now our other x64-based systems have another O/S on them that we don't want to get rid of. It may be a week or more before I get it, however.

    In the meantime, make a list of the things that are not working right, so I can get a headstart on where to look for problems.

      Thanks for the reponse to my question. The main issue I've seen is the MUI message/error when trying to view properties on a user object. I did see a msdn 'fix' for this on x64 Vista that entailed downloading the x86 RSAT tools and extracting a .dll to make it work. I did have some success with a x64 version of Hyena 7.5 on a Windows 7 x64 RC system. It's only drawback was that I got some empty menu options when selecting properties on a share.

        So after applying the MUI msdn 'fix', are there other issues when running the x86 x7.7 release of Hyena on a x64-based Windows 7 system ?

          Actually, I didn't apply the fix; I'm hesitant to add a Vista x86 .dll to my system at this point. I've wiped my system and reinstalled Windows 7 RTM x86 and Hyena works perfect. Even with the new, 8/11/09 release of the RSAT tools. My long-term concern is that as we all now have x64 systems and want to run x64 OSes with the memory benefits, we may be forced to move away from Hyena as a managment tool if we have to tweak our installations to make it run in a x64 mode.

            There isn't any problem with adding the x86 .dll to a x64-based system, as the file should be there already. There are already hundreds of x86 dlls on 64-bit systems anyway. Its just that Microsoft does not want to put that particular file into their install because they are not affected by this problem.

            For us, having to create a specific x64 build in order to work around this one problem creates a lot of issues, mainly in the number of builds and patches that we would have to support. The x64 builds also create some unique problems of their own which we are not sure how to resolve at this time.

              I didn't check to see if the file is there on Windows 7 RTM. Thanks for the info!

                The file needed was not included in Windows 7 x64 RTM, and following the steps mentioned here http://blogs.msdn.com/dsadsi/a rchive/20...urce-error.aspx fixed the problem with the MUI error. I downloaded RSAT x86 for Windows 7 and used the Expand command as stated in the above link.

                  I've re-reported the case to Microsoft to see if they want to look at it again. I'll post more information when I find it.

                    I copied the adprop.dll.mui from a x86 Windows 7 RTM system and put it on a x64 box and Hyena works perfect. Looks like Microsoft fixed whatever was causing the issue. Now I get to reinstall x64 on my box.

                      I'm on x64 Windows 7 and I'm having a odd problem. I right click on Containers/OU and do a 'FIND' and nothing ever pops up. I did realize I didn't have the RSAT tools installed fully until after I had already installed Hyena. But I reinstalled Hyena and 'FIND' still ignores me... Anyone seen this?

                          We acquired a new 64-bit system and Windows 7 in being installed shortly on it (its being downloaded now). I should be able to reproduce these problems and start testing workarounds. Let me know if you find anything else.

                              FWIW, I believe it worked (ctrl-f) until I installed the RSAT.
