I've been digging into this topic recently and over the several projects I've been involved with.

And figured to ask the real experts with hands-on packaging and compatibility fixing experience a simple, yet important question:
"What kind of incompatible (non-fixable, except a newer product version) Win7 x64 application issues have you ran into?"

Things that come to my mind are:
1) Unsigned kernel drivers
2) 16-bit components

Hi Greg,

Agreed 1&2, probably extend the list to hardware dependent features. eg hardware device that's been running on x machine for 100 or so years, probably even with a serial port connection. Yuk.

You'll find that there's a lot of "give" in a portfolio if you have the ability to upgrade to the latest and greatest for each product. As a result, your 64 bit concerns are almost a thing of the past. If you have the money than that's an ideal strategy to adopt.

It's just a shame you can't (mainstream) virtualise as many apps as you can install on 64bit.
