Just a warning to those thinking about installing DinnerNow on x64, it doesn't play nice.

I have spent the last day trying to get the app installed on Vista Business x64.  I am having difficulty troubleshooting some of the errors because I am not an expert at WCF yet.... that is a big part of why I wanted to review this app in the first place.

I am going to give up, for now, until an x64 friendly installer is available.

Another problem is the installer is hard coded to install to SQLEXPRESS... it also did not prove very easy to change this assumption made within the code.

David briefly discusses the challenges on x64 here:   http://blogs.msdn.com/daiken/archive/2008/02/12/64bit-dinnernow-testing-virtual-server-and-hyper-v.aspx

I also found a missing double quote on the Order.svc within the  ServiceHost declaration which prevented compilation.
