Seems to work in x86 and x64, but some people have problems showing error "not a valid win32 application", try to run as administrator

In x86 works fine, but in x64 fails to some people when to other with same processor works

Please comment your windows version and processor if have problems

This mean we can get a fix for Resident Evil 6? That's all that matters now...

Should be Windows, although depending on what OS version you are running (x32, x64, etc) it may not work on them all. If I read anything about which are compatible with it I will update the main article with the details. Has anyone else got it to run successfully?
