Are there plans in the near future to enable Kerio to run on 64-bit versions of Windows?

It will run on Windows x64 now, right? Just in 32-bit mode?

Windows x64 seems to becoming the standard pretty fast.

Support for 32-bit software on Windows 2003 x64 appears to be rock solid. We are running x64 terminal servers with some pretty obscure 32-bit software and haven't had any issues.

The only thing I definitely would not do, is to install the Active Directory Extension on an x64 domain controller. We had a lot of problems after doing that, although I cannot say for sure it was due to KADE. Oh, and KADE doesn't actually show you any GUI on x64 either Wink

So Kerio will run on a 64-bit edition of Windows without any trouble?

I'm asking as the system requirements page on the Kerio website is quite specific in stating "32-bit edition only".

I wouldn't bet money that it runs well, although it probably would work. All I'm saying is that we've had no issues running other 32-bit software on x64. Kerio is just saying they cannot vouch for KMS on 64-bit Windows, and that it is formally unsupported on those platforms.

If you're thinking on running a production KMS 6.6.2 on Windows x64, don't. We run KMS on Red Hat Linux, but we run all our internet facing mail servers (legacy and home-rolled) on anything but Windows anyway (currently FreeBSD, Debian and Red Hat).

Starting with version 6.7, Windows 64-bit is officially supported (KMS running in 32-bit mode):

Many thanks for the replies...

I see there is no roadmap of when 6.7 could be out? Having worked in a small software house in my dim and distant past I know what it's like having customers bugging you for release dates but an ambigious Q3 or Q4 would be beneficial.

That said though, today the test server gets wiped, Red Hatted and Kerio'd. It's been something that has been nagging at me and TorW's post gave me the final push!

The only problem is I've worked with every single version of Windows so I'm fairly confident I know its dirty little secrets but I've never touched Linux.

Oh well, it is only a test server, it's not like it's for real...
