64-bit Native Version?

Is this a Web application or a desktop application ?

We have a native 64 Bit version of Chart FX Internet Server currently in

BETA.

We do not currently have a 64-Bit version of Chart FX Client Server, mainly

because there seems to be no demand for it. If you are interested, you may

contact our sales department.

Our application is a desktop 64-bit application that does scientific

processing and will use a lot of charts. We have a home grown charting

solution, but I had hoped we could standardize on a 3rd party

solution.

A comment- we've received a very confusing message from SoftwareFX

sales. We were first told to use the .NET component because it is

23/64 bit, however, after downloading the trial and trying to make it

work in an unmanaged application we were told it absolutely will not

work in an unmanaged application, even through interop.... Then we

were told that there is a 64-bit client-server component undergoing

testing and we should use this product. Now you're telling me that

there is no 64-bit desktop chart control.

I think there are many ISV's planning 64-bit ports, but currently only

the CAD and Scientific processing community are actually doing it.

1) You can use any .NET control though interop, however, we can't provide 

you with extensive samples, documentation or support as this is not a common

scenario. We normally discourage using the control through interop for those

reasons and since we have equivalent COM versions for most of our products,

it usually makes no sense to do it.

2) I said, "We do not currently have a 64-Bit version of Chart FX Client

Server" meaning it is not available, we do have the code ported (Chart FX

Internet and Chart FX Client Server share most of the code).

3) We do not know at this point whether or not we are going to release this

product, like I said, this will depend on demand and so far most people

requiring 64-Bit is for server and a lot of people is using .NET. Out main

64-Bit strategy is the desktop is through .NET. Releasing a product requires

additional commitment of resources. We will not release if we feel there is

no demand for it. Like I said before your best shot is to contact Software

FX and explain your situation.

3) This is a community newsgroup and my posts are in no way the official

position of Software FX, I'm only providing information as I know it.

Anything that Software FX personnel tells you directly will be way more

accurate and should override whatever I post here. My posting are usually of

a general nature, speaking directly with Software FX you will obtain a more

personalized response.
