There was no 64bit Java support for the older versions of 64bit Windows. 
We have had some Windows user people tearing their hair out on the 
Wonderland project over this issue. Of course we Linux users just 
chortle at them. But, the newer Windows is reported to support 64bit 
java now. Heh, just another reason for Gates to get into their pockets 
and force an upgrade. I feel for those poor suckers ...and then I laugh
