Gdi++ For 64 Bit Os

Someone is making a 64-bit version of gdi++ called "ezgdi" that uses EasyHook.

http://code.google.com/p/ezgdi/

Can someone tell me how do you install it? What files go where and do I need to download and install EasyHook as well?

And does anyone knows how to get the ini file to look the same as Safari 4's Medium font smoothing for LCD?

apparently you have to rename the gdi++.ini file to ezgdi.ini?

I had no better results with ezgdi. I tried every combination with gdi++.ini and ezgdi.ini. I put them both in WINDOWSROOT and in system32. Result is - somewhere font rendering changed and somewhere still cleartype. Yet ezgdi is very unstable.

Sorry for poor grammar English.

ezgdi isn't complete, I just wanted to point out that someone is developing a 64-bit version of gdi++ from scratch. (yes, it does crash explorer.exe and doesn't work in IE8 or most apps so it's useless for now)

I know the future of Windows font rendering will be using Direct2D and it looks close to GDI but it's still sub-pixel rendering. I don't understand why doesn't Microsoft just use GDI and find good fonts.
