    Win64 API

    Has it already been released? If not,how they can be written programs for
    Windows XP 64-bit ed. and Windows 2k 64-bit ed.?

    Perhaps Win32 API does suffice,but it must be defined _WIN64_ before any
    #include directive...??

    That latest Platform SDK contains cross-compilers and libraries for Win64 (Itanium64 and AMD64).

    does the 32bit software has full support on a 64bit platform?

    However, 32-bit processes cannot load 64-bit DLLs, and 64-bit processes cannot load 32-bit DLLs.
    so the WOW allows for 32bit programs to run, but not really...


    is there a real reason for 64bit windows... because it's just like moving from IPv4 to IPv6, it creates a mess. Only moving to IPv6 has a real visible reason.
