    Could we get a binary patch for 64-bit WinXP? Unless I misunderstand, there would be no need to rework the art, only the binaries.

    I have 64-bit XP and would be willing to test!

    Are you running a 64 bit CPU?
    Not as expensive as a new car, but... major envy!

    They aren't too expensive. I paid $280 for mine, plus $180 for a new mobo.

    Far cheaper than what I paid for brand new DDR motherboard + Athlon when they were new technology. Be sure.

    Great suggestion. But, I wish the compiler tools makers were ready with a solution for 64-bit computing. After reading this page from Microsoft, it appears that they are making progress on migration tools for moving 32-bit apps to 64-bit environments:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de.../the_tools.asp

    So, it looks like a pre-release 64-bit compiler is available in the MS Platform SDK release to perform lexical testing of 32-bit code for potential definitions problems for 64-bit as well as actually output some working 64-bit object files. Also, MS appears to be working on creating 64-bit optimized libraries, but not all the 32-bit libraries have a 64-bit analog, still (so invoking the pre-release linker may fail). Migration of any 32-bit application to 64-bit at this early stage will require some work by the developer.

    You would think by now that a software solution would be out there because the hardware is here, but not quite (from MS, anyway). The Intel website drones on and on about the 64-bit Itanium architecture, but I am sure they won't be doing anything special to their line of compilers to help AMD.

    Sun has released an early 64-bit java dev package, so it would be completely possible to get a 64 bit compile.

    I realize it would be rough around the edges. Thats fine with me. I am willing to test if 1C is willing to make a new build.

    Sure would be nice to have in a future patch (of any FB addon!).
