6.0 doesn't have 64 bit support. All of us Windows 7 users are having the same issue. I'm not sure the SP1 will solve the problem. It may help, but you have to have an active maintenance agreement to get it.

I've taken to using another text editor with DITA support to write my topics (there's a number of freeware options). Then, I use XMetaL to generate my deliverables. It's not ideal, but the only time I have to worry about crashing is when I'm in a hurry to meet a deadline.
