Which configuration did you try to build?
The Win_x86_Release of course.
I've run it and it works.
I don't think you should remove the 32bit version. The current code is valid for 32 and 64 bit, and I don't think it needs to be forced to 64 bit in the future. After all, CodeLite does not require more than 4gb of memory...

The reason that I asked which configuration you asked is simply because the 'x86' configuration is not maintained (i.e. it might lack some macros or include an obsolete libraries which are no longer needed).
The reason I don't release 32 bit is simply because I lack a build machine for Windows 32 bit...
Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

Well, I guess you can run a 32bit compiler on a 64bit machine, but then again, I don't know the build process in depth, so I don't know if that is sufficient.
Anyway, I don't want to burden you with any more work than you currerntly have :)
