  • Two issues that I can think of:

    1. .wpost files can be searched using Windows Search under 32-bit versions of Vista. This won't work under x64.
    2. The "Blog This" button that we add to the Internet Explorer toolbar isn't available if you run IE in 64-bit mode.

    Other than that, it should be just fine.

  • I am running WLW Beta under Vista Ultimate 64 and I have seen no problem with it (or any other software for that matter)

    Note that under Vista 64 bit the default browser is still IE7 32bit.
