DD.exe for Window 7 64bits?

I'm trying to use DD.exe utility on Window 7 64 bits to copy .img file from 1 thumb drive to another thumb drive.

So far there was no luck trying to get it to work. I'm curious if there are any DD.exe that compatible with Window 7??

Yes,  that was where I downloaded FAU folder x64 bit for Window 7 64, still no luck.

What happened was, when I try to launch any .exe file, it runs and disappears

Website stated:
There is a problem with the manifest embedded in the version of Volume_dump originally distributed with FAU-1.3.0.2390 that prevents this program from running unless build 4053 of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 C/C++ runtime library already is installed on the subject computer.  For some inexplicable reason the compiler generated a different manifest for Volume_dump than for other FAU binaries.  Volume_dump build 1.3.1.2390 corrects this problem and is included in FAU-1.3.0.2390a.  Links on this page have been updated to point to the updated FAU package.  Please test and report any other problems promptly

So I downloaded
FAU has been recompiled and linked to build 4053 of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 C/C++ runtime library.  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=766a6af7-ec73-40ff-b072-9112bab119c2&displaylang=en#filelist

Installed and reboot, and still had same problem. The application ran and disappeared.

dd is supposed to be console application, so it would be normal to immediatly dissaper after running. You must run it from console.

Ahh ok, Thank you. I'm still new to this  and not so technical :)

basically, just run CMD command and go from there right?

extract somewhere dd.exe, open cmd, with cd and dir navigate to dd directory. And when you run dd without parameters it should show all possible parameters which could be used. probably they are same as for alternative un unix ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_%28Unix%29 ).
