Does anyone know if Beatunes will work with Windows Vista 64bit and when or if it will work with Windows 7?

    As long as you are using the version with the embedded jre, beaTunes should work fine with vista 64bit or windows 7.
    If you know of any problems, please contact us.

    I've seen mention of trying to support 64-bit on OSX. Are there plans to support it on Windows, too?

    The issue is that on OS X Apple is moving towards 64 bit and that's why beaTunes had to move the same way.

    However, on Windows iTunes/QuickTime are still 32 bit only. And since beaTunes relies on QuickTime and a process can only be either 32 bit or 64 bit, beaTunes has to stay 32 bit as long as iTunes/QuickTime are.

    Hope this explains the dilemma.

    However, as long as Windows still supports 32 bits (most likely close to forever), there is no issue.
