PM x64 & Garmin Communicator

Post by ryanr69 » 2012-05-28, 06:02

Hello,

I am using Palemoon x64 and when I install the garmin communicator (http://www8.garmin.com/support/download ... sp?id=3607) addon, it installs correctly but upon restart of the browser, it will never load.
It DOES work on the 32 bit version of palemoon but not 64bit. The addon does have 64bit support.

Any ideas on why this is happening or ways to force it to work?

Most add-ons work in the X64 version, but there are some exclusions, it seems that this Communicator is one of those. You can always ask in the developer's forums for aid, if someone here cannot give you aid.

Unless you meant as a plugin, in that case, plugins are a bit hard to work with and there are only about 5 that actually work in a 64 bit edition(Too lazy to list them here, I might have meant 4 or 6).
Curiosity leads to a world of experiments.

"Communicator Plugin software version 4.0.1"

So, it's a plugin. It seems 64-bit browser support has just recently been added in the latest version and may need some tweaking yet, it also requires the Windows Media Player plugin, so if that isn't installed yet, you might want to try that first. http://www.palemoon.org/troubleshooting ... ay_in_Pale
