In sales, at least at this side of the world, you don't need to BE; just to APPEARS TO BE. I had lost many sales just because the customer's IT manager still thinks that VFP = DBF = OLD TECHNOLOGY. If I can say that my app is a C++ nativa APP (even if, at the end, is just a loader for PCODE + VFP runtime) maybe I woudn't lost that sales. It doesn't matter, at the end, if it really a native 64 bit app or not; if APPEARS TO BE one is enough for me :)

AFAIK 64 bit VFP Compiler will be simply 64 bit loader for internally hidden 32 bit VFP runtime. So, neither performance nor memory advantages. The only advantage I see is, as Tom Saddul wrote, 'app be treated by ignorant prospective clients as a C++ application'. I may add: 'low qualification clients'.
