There is an open OOo bug that is over 5 years old.
It seems that OOo developers felt this was an unnecessary feature. However,
as users have commented in that bug report, the 32-bit version doesn't work
in 64-bit Terminal Servers, and Microsoft does not ship a 32-bit server
product anymore. Furthermore, Base can not connect to a 64-bit ODBC data
Given that Microsoft has been shipping 64-bit operating systems for 7 years
now, and that there are legitimate use cases where OOo/LibO can't fufil
needs without a 64-bit Windows build, shouldn't this be reevaluated?
And from a pure perception standpoint, it looks like OOo/LibO is behind MS
Office in this regard, given that MS Office offers a 64-bit version.
+2 for 64-bit builds
It is on the TODO list. It needs some porting efforts, however. It is
not as simple as recompiling the source code with a 64-bit compiler.
