ThinkVantage Secure Data Disposal - not supported under Windows 7


I am trying to run Build Boot Disk in ThinkVantage SDD and I am getting the following:

 "The program or feature "\??\C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkVantage\Secure Data Disposal\image\SDDBASE.EXE" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit version of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available."


Is the 64bit version available and where can I download the copy?


SDD only runs on Windows XP.  It is not supported on Windows 7.  This is documented on the download page:



 Try DBAN or another application to securely destroy data:
