Standalone settings shows the Windows 64-bit option as "experimental." 
How experimental is it, and has anyone had any issues?

A little story: I was just contacted by a client I did some work for 15 
years ago. She's been running the same app all this time, but a while 
back she lost the ability to run it on her OS X Mac at home (the app was 
built for OS 9) so she wants it updated for OS X. The ancient Windows 
app still runs on her Windows 10 box at work.

Since I'm going to rebuild it for OS X, we're going to update the 
Windows version as well. I'm wondering if I should go ahead and use 
64-bit for that to ensure the app will still work 15 years into the future.

It's astounding to me that a LiveCode app built with MC 2.7 is still 
viable in today's software environment. You have to applaud the team's 
incredible dedication to backward compatibility.
