Does PB12.5 support 64bit WIndows or does PB15?

Hi Larry;

PB Classic and PB.Net are still 32 bit but are certified to run
"properly" under 64bit MS-Windows. PB.Net can build a 64bit EXE but its
.Net Assemblies and Web Services are still only 32 bit.

PB Classic in version 15 was supposed to have 64 bit EXE
capabilities. While this was on the PB 15 road-map - as of late, it
seems to have been dropped off the current plan. :-(

Wrong. The .Net Assemblies and Web Services are AnyCPU. They will operate
in 32 bit mode when called from a 32 bit executable and in 64 bit mode when
called from a 64 bit executable.

Web Services are not called from an executable though - so how would
that work?

They are called from IIS (which is an exectuable). The bitness is
determined by the application pool. The application pools on a 64 bit
system default to 64 bit but can be configured to allow 32 bit operation.

FWIW: My 64bit IIs only processes WCF assemblies when the AppPool is set
to 32 bit.

However, some PB features still require the PB Classic DLL's which would
downgrade your assembly to 32bit operations n those areas.
