AE7 should run on Vista 64 - with limitations. However, as an unsigned legacy app, it may be interfering with UAC, DEP and all other such stuff, so I'd look into that. Be aware however, that this is as unofficial as it gets - Adobe does not provide any support for AE7 on Vista, no matter on 64bit or 32bit. CS3 was designed and tested with Vista in mind, but only CS4 actually behaves fully (and if you upgraded, you'd buy that version anyway). The CC effects and Keylight are included.
Well, I may have to upgrade to CS4 because I'm still not able to get AE7 to work with my Vista 64 bit. I have read posts from others that do have it running, so I'll update you here in case anyone can suggest something I have missed.
Here's what I have tried:
1. Set Vista to run AE7 in Windows XP compatibility mode
2. Turned off Antivirus
3. Turned off Aero
4. Turned off DEP for all but Windows critical components
5. Verified that I am at the latest point release (AE 7.01)
When I attempt to run AE7 Vista throws the following error information:

When you installed AE7, did you run Setup as an admin? Right click Setup.exe and Run As Adminstrator. Dunno if that'll fix your problem, but it's a good habit to get into.
David, I was logged in as administrator which I assume is the same. Correct me if I am wrong.
BEX is a binary execution error, but since your timestamp and offset info is empty, it crashes right away and doesn't even load into memory. Whatever the reason - it is certainly severe. I just cannot provide any more clues.... Sorry.
