Until there is official 64-bit support from php.net, you can find 64-bit PHP releases here:

Follow the recommendations regarding use of 'thread safe' and 'non thread safe' versions

I am not seeing where to install it like the Installer package that came with the 32 bit. Your thoughts. It is going on a Windows 2008 Server with IIS7.

What file do we click on to install PHP 64 bit...?

You need to install manually.

The following notes may assist:
1. Unzip the files into a folder (eg. C:\PHP)
2. Add C:\PHP and C:\PHP\EXT to your system PATH
3. Copy php.ini-production to php.ini
4. Update the new php.ini file for your environment (eg. enable mysql)
5. Register ISAPI in IIS (follow instructions on PHP site for manual installation)
6. Add .php extensions to each site in IIS
7. Restart IIS (may require a full server restart)

You should be good to go...
