Re: st: Windows Vista and Stata
Jeph Herrin (email@example.com) asked about using Stata on
a 64-bit Windows computer:

Jeph is interested in migrating from 32-bit Windows XP to 64-bit
Windows Vista. This assumes that Jeph has a 64-bit computer
on which he is currently running 32-bit Windows XP.
Before addressing the Stata question, I will note that, rather
than waiting for 64-bit Windows Vista, Jeph could upgrade to
64-bit Windows XP to be able to take advantage of his 64-bit hardware:
Stata for Windows is available for the following operating
system/hardware combinations. It does not matter whether
the particular version of Windows is 2000, XP, or Vista.
64-bit Windows on x86-64 hardware
64-bit Windows on Itanium hardware
Since Jeph already has a license for Stata/SE for 32-bit Windows,
he just needs to contact StataCorp's sales department by emailing
firstname.lastname@example.org to convert his license to Stata/SE for 64-bit Windows
on whatever hardware he has (most likely x86-64).
It is not required to run Stata/MP on a dual core computer, but if
Jeph wishes for Stata to be able to take advantage of both cores
at once, he will want Stata/MP.
