    Hi,

    I noticed you have a bunch of 64 bit applications for this project, I'm running boinc on Windows 7 64 bit and all I seem to get is to work with the 32 bit application, is there anything I need to do in order to work with the 64 bit application which will be more efficient for this project?

    Thank you :)

      It is caused because we don't really have 64 bit application versions. They are 32 bit versions, only named to 64 bit. This way the donors using 64 bit OS would get WUs too.
      It's just a little cheat. :)

        There is a GCC x64 cross compiler package (MinGW, e.g. x86_64-w64-mingw32) for win32, so the project devs would not need to install a Win x64 in order to create programs for it.

        RNAWorld uses such a thing.
