Weird. Every test I performed went on to perform other unrelated tests. When I chose floating point CPU tests, it went on to test the hard drive. The hard drive tests appear to lock up with the progress bar always maxed. There appears to be no local display of test results and no instructions or guides either.

Nice having a 64-bit support however appears single threaded so not a lot of use for multicore setups. The results and comparison website is just about unusable - which is a shame because that's usually the most interesting part about running benchmark tests.
