QuickBooks Conversion tool will not work with 64 bit Windows, or Accounting software wants to kill me

First Microsoft discontinues Office Accounting 2009 a mere four months after I install it and spend 40 hours trying to get it working over the network with XP. Then I make the move to QuickBooks due to this press release, and discover that their oh so magnificent data conversion tool will not work with either Vista 64 bit or Windows 7 64 bit. I now have to wrangle one of the old computers from the closets, do a clean install of 32 bit vista on that, install both Quickbooks and Office Accounting on that computer, convert that over on there, and then move the Quickbooks file to one of the two 64 bit computers I have here in the house. Such joy. No wonder I hate accounting.
