Photoshop: Batch Actions are crashing PS CS5 32Bit on Windows 7 64 bit

I have noticed that I cannot run any batch actions from Bridge or File Automate Batch when in the 32Bit version of Photoshop CS5. It is happening on both of my machines that have CS5 Creative sweet installed on. I am running Windows 7 64Bit SP1. I noticed this after the last Adobe updates were installed. I can run Batch actions fine from 64Bit Photoshop just fine.
I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue after latest Adobe Updates?

Do you have a scanner/TWAIN installed?

I do have twain drivers installed. I have them for a Microtek 1000XL, an Epson 1680 transparency scanner, and a Kodak i1220 Document scanner However this is a relatively new crash that is consistent. I have to use Batch actions regularly at work and have never experienced this since I have had CS5. only since the last update did I notice it.

I didn't catch it right away because I am jumping back and forth between 32 and 64 bit.

When I work with large files I get better performance since I have 16 gigs of ram so I use 64 bit.

I use 32 of course to be able to use TWAIN for scanning and some 32bit only filters.

The only other thing that has changed on my home computer are Windows updates, but I have not updated Windows on my Work machine for ages, and both machines are experiencing the same crash.

I found a work around:)

From Bridge using Tools-> Image Processor I select to preform the appropriate Action in the Dialog and it works regardless of what Bit version of PS I'm using.

If manufacturers would just start developing 64bit TWAIN I wouldn't have to jump back and forth. Oh well.
