The problem is that under 64-bit Vista or Win 7, the "globals" now contains global names that contain "(x86)" - the parentheses gives the Message Box (and the Variable Watcher too) fits. To fix this for the Message Box, create a button on a card and set the script to: on mouseUp edit script of field "Message Field" of stack "Message Box" end mouseUp and click the button. In the script, in the 'returnInField' handler near the bottom, there are two lines: put the globals into tGlobs do "global" && tGlobs & return & ... (etc.) In between these two lines, insert: replace "$ProgramFiles(x86)" with "" in tGlobs replace "$CommonProgramFiles(x86)" with "" in tGlobs Save the script, then execute: save stack "Message Box" You're done!
