Only 64-bit editions?

From engineering point of view it is just a task of recompiling existing sources with 64 bit compiler and eventually fixing few portability issues that will be reported by the compiler automatically.

Many vendors in INDIA, plugin is available only in 32-bit version.

So either this simple process takes two years in Statica labs :wink: or there are other, true "business" reasons why they are not willing to release it.

Tomasz,

I am a longstanding, satisfied user of 32 bit AmiBroker and have no compelling reason to switch to a 64 bit version.

Thanks,
David

Tomasz,

A welcome move and good thought if this prohibit vulnerabilities and makes AmiBroker more secure.

When I have such possibility (availability of 64-bit data plugin for my market) I will switch to 64-bit AmiBroker right away for many different reasons - among them larger address space and improved speed.

I don't use plugins & I have switched to 64bit with last release. However, I think you should use this moment to give heads up to people that are using 32bit plugins so they can put pressure on their vendors or come up with other alternatives.

Tomasz, if this is also a counter piracy move, then I support it. Good data providers (like Statica) will need to adapt and release their 64-bit plugins...

I routinely use 32-bit and 64-bit instances at the same time with different 32/64 bit OLE clients. It's a convenient way to run two automation processes without interfering with each other. I would rather not lose this capability.

I am also a very satisfied, every day user that would rather not have to go through the hassle of upgrading to 64-bit.

Like @Steve, I use them both for a similar reason. I vote to keep the two versions.

Right now the Standard Edition is 32 bit only, Does it mean that it would be also 64 bit or will it disappear?

I currently only use 32 bit, but intend to move to 64 bit at my next upgrade. As long as there is plenty of warning (say 2 years?) I'm comfortable with AB only offering 64 bit in the future.

I would also be happy with 64-bit only. It's simpler and we have performance advantages.

I use only the 32 bit version of Amibroker, with 32 bit ActiveX automation components. This components doesn't work with Amibroker 64 bit...

Maintaining the old 32-bit version only takes away from Tomasz' precious time. Time that would be better spent with adding new features to AB64. Therefore I suggest to drop support for AB32 as soon as possible.

I would vote for a Linux version instead of maintaining the 32 bit edition.

I only use 64 bit version.

Like @Steve and @beppe , I use them both for a similar reason.

Thanks

I use both 64bits and, on a recover PC, a 32 bits version.

Other producer (I think MultiCharts) have initially dismissed 32 bits but now have restarted to publicly release 32 bits version.
Thanks
