Is there a version of SoX that is compatible with 64-Bit Windows 7? Whenever i try to run "sox.exe" (or any other program in 14.4.0), all that happens is that a command prompt window opens and closes, almost simultaneously. I haven't been able to find anyone else with this problem. Any ideas?

This is normal for any program that is designed primarily for command-line use. – bwDraco Sep 28 '12 at 2:50

SoX is not meant to be run by double-clicking on it in Explorer. Open a command prompt and pass the executable all appropriate arguments.
