I'm purchasing new systems for our engineering department - Dell Precision T3400 with Windows XP Pro - 64 bit processors.  It doesn't look like Lotus Notes 6.5.6 will work with the 64 bit processors.  Is this true and if so, is there a work around?

have a look at this

http://per.lausten.dk/blog/2006/10/lotus-domino-and-64-bit-support.html

although it may be just the server program that is 32 bit only i have found postings suggesting that the 64 client has been successflly installed

if not how about using virtual machine to build a 32 bit environement inside your x64 install

It seems that everything I'm reading is talking about the server and not the client.  I hate to spend $$$ on something that won't work with Lotus Notes.  I wouldn't know where to start with a virtual machine on a 32 bit environment.

piece of cake buddy, if you can set up a domino server you can set a VM!!

however im pretty sure youll find that whilst the server has to be on an 32 bit platform the client works fine on x64, pretty rare apps dont know to be honest

have a look at this for microsft virtual PC. if your using an x64 environment, youll probably find it handy to have this anyway as there are still apps that def dont work on the x64 OS

Just worth noting are yuou aware lotus are slowly and carefully withdrawing from the mail market....... license costs are going up and people are moving further and further away, my business currently uses lotus and im aware they are putting into motion the transfer to exchange as its just becoming too expensive to run notes and thats for a reason ;o)

Lotus continues to be a drain for me as well.  To do anything in it, other than the basic mail stuff, takes way too much time.  I'm looking at Exchange too, but that's a few projects off.  Thank you for your help.
