    Default Does V11 take full advantage of Win7 64 bit architecture?

    I'm running Win7 64 with 8gig memory.
    Does anyone know if V11 takes advantage of, and use the available additional memory?
    I realise it has to work on XP as well, so is XP and sub 3.6 gig the lowest common denominator?

    Alpha is a 32 bit program, and therefore will never use more than a little bit over 3 gigs.

    Also, since the greatest amount of memory it uses has never gotten more than a bit over 100,000, I suspect the answer is no.

    I seriously doubt the dbf/desktop will ever be 64 bit. Cian commented once that the code exceeds 3 million lines and would be a mammoth undertaking.

    So that's interesting in this "brave new world" of ours.
    It will be interesting to see who is close on Alpha's heels with other quick development products.
    Seen a few with Web Based offerings, but nothing approaching Alpha DT stuff.
