I did some quick tests on different machines (all have 64bit OS):
Win 8.0 German with German display is ok.
Win 8.1 US (Eval) is ok for English and German display languages.
But I can reproduce the problem on my own and on a co-worker's machine (both with German Win7). One of these machine has the regular German display language set, the other has English as display language.
The problem seems to be limited to non-US (or even German) Windows 7 machines, no matter what the display language is.
Perhaps someone who also has a non-US language version of Win7-64 can confirm this?
