I am kind of confused on your question. "Why wasn't it working earlier, when you claimed you were using Ansi 32 bit?"
Now that I've taken my foot out of my mouth, I can say that MI.ahk does not support 64-bit. If you replace
Menu, Root, Show, the menu will show (probably without icons).
I'm not going to update MI.ahk, as the time would be better spent adding support for icon handles to the
Menucommand (thus making MI.ahk fully obsolete).Why wasn't it working earlier, when you claimed you were using Ansi 32 bit?
AhkControl has ALWAYS worked for me, until I installed ahk Unicode 64 bit.
Let me say it again a different way.
Ansi 32 bit works
Unicode 32 bit works
Unicode 64 NOT work
