64 bit windows version

Post by karmacomposer » Tue Jul 10, 2018 1:01 pm

For me, 64 bit for Windows is pretty important.

I'll also add a feature request for a more robust data control that has excel-like formatting and features.

Agree!

I think it will come, but when.
Yes 32 bit works good, but you know how people are, 64 bits already exists for a while now (Win xp 64bit 2005), and they want it (don't matter if it does not work any better.

For example Flowstone a graphical programming environment neglected it to bring 64bit although many requests from users. While it was a fun package with Ruby integrated and runs while you program. It's good as dead now. Not saying that it will be the same as with LC.
But it could attract more people wanting to use LC.

Good to know - thanks, Trevor.

Has Microsoft begun removing support for 32-bit apps in Win10?
