64 bit version(s) of ALL SalesLogix applications

Status: Under Consideration
by Gold Super Contributor on ‎11-02-2009 11:28 AM

With the release of Windows2008 R2 and the big push for 64 bit desktops/laptops it's time we have an option in the install that would give us 64 bit versions of all the SalesLogix applications. 


This does not have to be a "mixed" (32/64 bit) on a given system but should allow us to install either the 64 bit or the 32 bit on a given platform. What would be really nice is that it does an auto-discovery (this should be very easy) if the platform is 32 or 64 bit and "default" to the correct one.

Our expectation is that you use SData for integration. We are considering a complete 64 bit web architecture stack.

I just go this today, so hopefully not too much longer. I assume the SLX developers are aware of this...? And who knows, maybe one or two of them are even participating?

 What's the cost?

At least a hundred dollars, I'd expect...


Delphi & RAD Studio upgrades have traditionally been super-expensive, but they haven't said boo so far about how they're going to package the 64-bit compiler. But you have to assume it would at least be part of the Enterprise version, and the SalesLogix devs are probably using that - I suspect an individual will probably have to pay up to $2K just to upgrade, but there are site licenses, volume discounts, etc... anyway, the money probably isn't a big deal. The real question is, will there be free t-shirts for the beta testers and early adopters? If not, then I suspect there's gonna be a lot of guys on Gainey Center Drive with badly-sunburned armpits.

So considering this item has been hanging around since 2009, how can Sage still not have this "Under consideration" at least!!!


Not having V8 as 64 bit is going to be a real issue for the product.
