Do you have particular needs for a 64 bit version ? The Javascript output is the same for all version, so only the 32-bit version is shipped because it runs on all Windows.

Strictly speaking, I don't need it.
I am writing a cross platform compiler/Virtual machine targeted at 64bit systems, the problem I have is that the variable sizes such as for integers and pointers are different. It makes testing difficult as there are already code differences between PB and SB; having a platform difference (64 and 32bit) is an added variable. I could use 32 bit PB; but I think that's a step back, as it is not what I am writing for.

Pointer and integer are the same size on the 32-bit and 64-bit SpiderBasic version, could you post a code showing your issue (could be a bug) ?
