Item #26 - Wrong OS type detection [Closed - Resolved]

Hi Areca is wrongly warning about wrong usage of 64-bit version.

I am using Windows Server 2008 (64bit)
64bit Java7 Update 21
64bit Areca 7.3.1
64bit ArecaVSS 1.3

Still it always throws this error/warning:

Errors and Warnings :
13-06-14 23:24 - ERROR - CAUTION : It seems that you are running a 64-bits Java Runtime Environment on a 32-bits system. Please use a Java Runtime Environment that has the same architecture as your OS in order to properly run ArecaVSS.
13-06-14 23:24 - ERROR - This may lead to unexpected behaviour of ArecaVSS (freezes, errors or crahes)

Could you check with the latest version of ArecaVSS (2.0) and tell me if it solves your issue

Thank you

New kind of error now. Everything is ok if I launch the backup manually from Areca GUI, nothing works if I use the command line (with same user and with administrator rights).

Please check that you are running Areca-Backup with administrator rights (necessary in order to use VSS) and that VSS services are properly started on your computer.
