I have the installs (with unintall support) for 2.6.0 & 2.6.2 on my
system, and they are both native Win64 compilers. I believe they are
official installers. The 2.6.4 and 3.0.0 installers on SF.net are
definitely cross-compilers.

No matter, like Michael said, it is quite easy to build your own, which
I did.

Well, at the moment you need to do two downloads & installs to get Win64
support. First you need to install the win32 compiler, then the win64
cross-compiler. But yes, I guess that is minor - how often does one
install release compilers anyway. ;-)

Thanks for the info though.
