I need to modify an older bat file that worked well on Windows XP but stopped working on 4-bit version of Windows 7 because it is using the 32-bit version of the sed utility which does nor run on Windows 7 64-bit.

Is there a 64-bit version of SED and if yes, where can I safely download it from?

Thank you!

You can find sed in the GnuWin Packages. I don't believe you can get a 64-bit version of sed from this location. I needed od for windows which I found in the related CoreUtils for Windows package.

But you can install a 64-bit Linux-like bash shell on Windows from Cygwin to get a Linux feel.

I'd like to find sed for 64-bit that would be installed in a similar package that it was installed for the 32-bit version.  I don't think that was a Linux-like package.

Alternatively, is there something similar and more native to Windows?

Thank you.

>> using the 32-bit version of the sed utility which does not run on Windows 7 64-bit
sed.exe in the GnuWin Packages link runs on my Windows 7 64-bit laptop.
