64bit ColdFusion For All

To date, 64bit ColdFusion has only been available to ColdFusion Enterprise customers. This will (thankfully) change in ColdFusion Centaur, and all customers will have access to 32bit or 64bit versions, regardless of edition. Yeah!

    That's great!

    Excellent news! 64-bit machines have become almost ubiquitous since CF8 launched so it's great to see CF9 acknowledge that!

    This was announced by Adam at CF.Objective() 2009. But it's ince to hear it reiterated.

    Awesome, 64-bit machines ae fairly the norm rather than the exception now, especially for servers.

    Thats because there will be only one version right? Thats what im hoping anyway.

    That's great news, Ben!

    Great news, Ben. The price difference between standard/enterprise has always been a bit of a head scratcher, and it's nice that something as simple as 64bit support will be available for the product. Looking forward to caching 8 GB in memory in CF9 ;)

    This is slightly concerning - http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/coldfusion... - Reading this implies that the x64 OS flavours require Enterprise. ie: all listings on their pages 3 and 4 of this document.

    The filename seems to imply that it was published on the 13th July, so it might have been replaced since, but it would be good to have an Adobe referenced release to see this...?? Anyone got an up to date reference from Adobe with this confirmed??

    Someone know if Coldfusion 9 Support COM Object ?

    ColdFusion 8 has COM support in the 32-bit version; not under 64-bit. I am hoping that version 9 has added COM support under the 64-bit JVM. Ben?

    No, unfortunatelly it doesn't.
    Coldfusion 9 x64 bit still has NO COM SUPPORT. The only solution is to run a paralel Coldfusion x32 server for the COM object compatibility. Thank you, Adobe!

    Is this still the case? CF9 64bit Ent has no COM support whatsoever? No way to access 32bit or 64bit com?

    64bit CF9 does not work with many DLL's including Linkpoint, Efflair and any other that was created in 32bit.
