Diamond Backtesting & Walk Forward Manager

Hi
Has anyone tried the Diamond backtesting program recently, just wanted to see if it is now compatible with the MC 64 bit versions. Also, does it provide much more backtest benefits than the new updated MC backtesting

Yes, I understand that, however often I get fills near the low of bar and lower than the opening, that would not happen if a buy at market order went in right at the opening of the next bar.
