I've been trying to load a saved game against the AI into AE Tracker without success. I'm running Vista 64 with both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Java 6 Update 16. I've also tried running both the Bat file and the Jar file. The Bat file generates an error message stating that I have an "Unsatisfied Link Error - pwsdll.dll can't load IA 32 bit .dll on an AMD 64 bit platform". I actually have an Intel chip but I doubt that matters.
It's all AMD-Intel vendor maneuvering, with a nice volley by Microsoft.
Microsoft made a 64-bit Windows version for the Itanium CPU (IA64), which is made jointly by Intel and HP. AMD came out with their own 64-bit CPU (x86_64), and Microsoft developed the x64 version of Windows. Intel came along and wanted to have their own 64-bit CPU, but Microsoft said "screw you, we've already done a version for you, use AMD's standard, and you'll have your OS." Intel, realizing that an Intel 64-bit CPU without a Windows OS is useless, came out with their EM64T, which is basically AMD-conformant.
So the Microsoft Windows x64 is at base made for AMD's x86_64, and Intel went along. That's how I remember it, from years ago.
