64 bit binaries for Windows #435
NZBGet source code is 64 bit compatible. Official installer packages for Linux, Mac and FreeBSD include 64 bit binaries for these platforms. Installer for Windows however includes only 32 bit binaries, mostly because there were no benefits in providing 64 bit binaries for Windows.
Still, there are situations where having 64 bit version would help. In particular sometimes users configure very large article cache (although NZBGet can effectively work with much smaller cache). Due to memory limitations in 32 bit mode that sometimes causes program crashes if not enough free memory is available for the app (limit is 2GB). A 64 bit app could use all computer memory and wouldn't crash in such situation.
