    This program works best with 32-bit editions of Windows. 64-bit users may observe slow conversion speed.

    We're working on a Win32 version of this program. It will be available soon in both 32-bit and 64-bit. You won't have any speed issues with that program.

    I tried it on my Windows 7 32bit pc and it worked smoothly. I tried converting a few of my bitmaps and they all converted well, and the file size was also reduced. 🙂
