Hi,
I was wondering if there are any plans to create a 64-bit version of the sixtrack application.

Thanks

I have seen many plans not to do it. 64-bit causes totally different results for the sixtrack code.

Does that mean that more precision invalidates the previous work??? This is NOT good!

You may look at the timestamp of the post you replied to:
Sep 2007
This is more than 12 years ago.

Beside that the discussion was about the supported CPU/OS architecture which is totally different from the floating point precision.
