Hello, we're porting our application to native 64-bit (x64), and I've installed the 64-bit version of the PI-SDK (184.108.40.2067). A couple of questions based on some of the previous forum stuff I've seen here:
1) The AboutPI-SDK.exe program is not there. How would a customer add a server to the known servers table, without doing it programatically? It sounds like 1.4 may address this, and if no other way to add/view/edit the known servers table (without writing a new program), when is the release date of that?
2) Is the 64-bit PI-SDK build ready for production use? Or which version of the PI-SDK 64-bit is recommended? Obviously any stability issues would be a primary concern, but similar performance as the 32-bit version would also be a requirement. If there's some sort of comparison matrix or some other link I should look at, that'd be more that satisfactory.
Any light to shed on the above would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Joe
64-bit: Yes, there will be controls and utilities as part of the 64-bit release. The original release was intended for web apps that utilize their own connection management interface, or auto-add KST maintenance. But otherwise, use the 32-bit About PI-SDK until the next release is out there.
Release schedule: According to our road map the release of PI SDK 2011 (version 1.4) is scheduled for the second quarter of 2011.
Performance: speed is equivalent for 64-bit native code.
