Is there a 64-bit version of the PrimalSQL software?

Currently PrimalSQL is only a 32-bit application.

Is there a particular reason why you are asking for a 64bit version?

Thank you,

Yep, there sure is. I use PrimalSQL to develop queries that I export to PowerShell code and run as scheduled tasks on our 2008 x64 servers. The database connection we use is an x64 ODBC system DSN to an OpenEdge database hosted remotely. Running on a 64-bit operating system, powershell runs in the x64 space and cannot "see" any 32-bit DSN. So we have installed and run the 64-bit ODBC driver.As 32-bit apps are walled off from the 64-bit Data Sources having a 64-bit development tool would certainly make things easier on me. As it stands, attempting to connect using the x64 DSN results in and error:"[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application"Hope that wasn't too redundant and rambling. :)

Thank you for providing information as to why you require a 64-bit version and you have a valid reason. The good news is that we are working on a 64 bit version. The bad news is that application is dependent on a 32-bit third party component, which means we have to rewrite the component from scratch in order to support 64-bit. As a result, it will take some time to convert the application, but rest assured that we are working a 64-bit version of PrimalSQL.
Thank you once again,
David

Good to hear, guess I'll run PrimalSQL in a 32-bit VM or something until the x64 version is available. Glad to hear that it's in the works. Now if we could just get those Visual Studio guys to follow suit. ;)
