Revit 2010 ADR2010 and ShareNow not installing

I'm having some trouble installing ShareNow. Revit 2010 and ADR2010 do not show the ribbon on the Add ins tab.
The ribbon does appear in Autocad Architecture 2010. This is a 64 bit windows xp machine.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry you are having trouble. This is a
known issue related to registry settings on 64-bit machines. we plan on
addressing it in an upcoming update. the exact timing has not been
determined. I will post a blog article (http://labs.blogs.com/) when the new
technology preview is available.

Scott,
Thanks for your prompt reply. I had a feeling it had to do w/x64 OS. If it's a registry tweak or something similar, could you post that in the meantime? Or it may be a more involved code/compiling issue which I'll have to wait for the new version? Freewheel/ShareNow looks like a very promising technology. I especially like how comments are recorded by user which ADR does not do.
Has there been a request to assign discipline to a user and color by discipline?
i.e. Architectural (mcoviello,sshepard) Structural (user1,user2), MEP etc. Then filtering by disipline and/or user?
Thanks again.

There is a new version up there. Please see if this fixes the installer
problem

The installer for ADR2010 is working but not for Revit Architecture 2010. I do have other addin's loaded.
Also the share now installer wants to install in the \Program Files (x86)\ directory and Revit is installed in \Program Files\ on my 64bit OS.

other thoughts not related to this issue but got me thinking when I saw the 2010 share now and 2010 design review share now.....

It would be great to have 1 installer for all 2010 products including ADR2010. Probably a larger issue of how Autodesk bundles software and issues updates. Since ADR 2010 installs with 2010 products, From an IT perspective it would be great to have 1 universal 2010 product Web Update. Until that happens, I'm becoming very adept at writing batch files! my .02

I'd really like some guidance here on this Share-Now/Freewheel issue. As subscription customers we obviously jump on the newest release as it becomes available, and honestly we haven't enjoyed Share-now or Freewheel integrated since Release 9.1. Why can't this be built into the install? I'd like a browser plugin too, you know right there in Safari while Im browsing. Anyway my two cents, just frustrated that we're always talking up Freewheel and cant ever use it.
