Not having a x64 official release build at this point is laughable.  While you can run the x86 version by tweaking a configuration setting, this breaks the ability for IIS to run other .net applications that require x64 support.  Expecting that you can just run them on another server isn't really acceptable either.

Please provide an official release for x64.  Many of us aren't really all that concerned that there may not be a performance increase at this point, we just need a version that is compatible with our server requirements.

Reproduce code:
Install php alongside something like on a x64 box

Expected result:
you should be able to have x64 .net apps run in the same server as php.

Actual result:
I have to setup a whole new server to run php apps.  This is a very expensive waste of machine equipment.

"Not having a x64 official release build at this point is laughable. "

What is laughable is the fact that I never heard of you before so I won't bother to much about your sense of humour. You can laugh at us if you help :)

x64 support is experimental and as such it is available in our QA downloads:

I looked at the ones on the QA site, but they didn't have any of the IIS isapi dll's built in.
 [2009-09-07 18:29 UTC]
And that's laughable. ISAPI is deprecated and the FCGI SAPI is recommended instead (by and the IIS team). As such it has been removed from our releases, in 5.3.0 and later.

Btw, you can run 32bit versions smoothly in a 64bit server :)

As I stated above, you cannot run 32 bit stuff smoothly in a x64 environment when you have stuff that requires .net x64.

In the distribution on the QA for x64, there were no server based extenstions, apache or IIS.

Please ask support questions either in the IIS forums, the php-install mailing list or whatever is your favorite support channel.

But let me tell you a last time some facts:
- You can run x86 PHP on x64 servers.
- You should run FCGI and not ISAPI
- Apache does not provide nor support windows x64 yet

Have a nice day :)
