Do you have plans to create a native 64bit app for windows? I am using the 64bit app for ABC (in ABC), and it is amazing how much faster my comp can work. My core2duo e6700 @ 3GHz is averaging about 2.99k a day for the past 10 days.

I might have one available by as early as tomorrow morning. Don't hold me to that, though.

I've got one host to offer that runs WinXP64 as well, so I could help checking here as well.

I also have a 64 bit windows host I can help you test applications on.

I am still getting 32bit apps on the 64bit platform.

Here's the problem: the Intel Fortran compiler does *not* like to compile for 64-bit on 32-bit machines. I'm working on figuring out the problem, but it will most likely take a while.

Is there a possibility for you to run a 64-bit Windows in VMWare, and install the Fortran compiler there? That could be more convenient than having to install a 64-bit Windows directly on disk.

I don't think that this is possible. Even if the cpu is 64 bit capable, the host has to be 64 bit in order to support 64 bit guests.

No, no. ;) I run Ubuntu 64-bit on a Windows XP (32) host. I have previously run XP 64 and Vista 64 in a VM on that same host. No problems whatsoever. Only make sure, if Intel, that the CPU supports Virtualization Technology, and that it is enabled in BIOS.

Ok, Intel VT could do it. I haven't tried that. I have only AMD X2's (Socket 939) and they don't support the virtualization stuff, so it doesn't work via VM on my machines.

Sorry for leaving this thread hanging for so long.

It looks like the 64-bit Windows version is going to have to wait for a while. We're dealing with some licensing issues with our compiler and it looks as though it may take a while.

I'll keep you updated on any changes.

If you find a contact with Intel, they might give you a license for EMT64, they are actually pretty good about "public service" support.
PS- I thought 64 bit support was included with the std package (assuming you are using the ICC/IPP package).
PPS- If you are not using the Intel Compiler, you should check it out (time allowing), it produces very fast, clean code.
