And is that a problem? Is KWF not functioning properly?

There's no benefit for software such as KWF to be 'real' 64-bit. It doesn't need >2Gb memory for itself. It doesn't need to do massige calculations with >=64-bit intergers or floats. So it wouldn't run any faster/better were it 'real' 64-bit code. So, I think rightfully, Kerio choose not do make a considerable investment (with little return) in porting the software to 64-bit.

That they now support 64-bit, means that they test against that platform and it works as advertised. Which is all that is needed, right?

I've used many firewalls (software and appliance) and I like Winroute.

Kerio's announcement made customer's confuse. It's real x86 application. But Kerio said: Kerio WinRoute Firewall (64-bit)

Only the installer is 64-bit !

MS Windows x64 support 32-bit mode, rather than KWF support 64-bit. Kerio should advertise: 32-bit version for Windows x64

That would be clearer, indeed.
