Does anyone have, or are there any plans to produce, a native 64-bit binary build for Windows?
We’ve been having “random problems” running the 32-bit Condor binaries on 64-bit Windows OS’s. I’ve recently seen some discussions regarding other 32-bit applications that have similar problems and they have been attributed to bugs in the 32-bit “Windows on Windows” emulation.
To quote someone else: “ Combing forums, we believe the culprit to be bugs in Microsoft WoW (Windows on Windows for 32-bit emulation on 64-bit OS) where preemptive threading is not handled well. Problems included hangs, zombie processes, and file system failures. The problems occur a bit more frequently on Vista and 7 than on XP we think due to different memory allocation methods, but the problems can be seen on all 64-bit Windows versions.”
This describes what we are seeing pretty well.
So, native 64-bit binaries anyone?
