the official word is 'soon'. :) (you can search the forums to find the post.)

even so, i'm not sure you can expect a x86_64 build. even xbmc isn't x86_64 on windows.

I tried to compile for win32 today but there were 2 errors.

1) c1xx : fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file: '..\..\xbmc\GUIDialogBoxeeFriendsList.cpp': No such file or directory

2) ..\..\xbmc\cores\DllLoader\exports\emu_msvcrt.cpp( 1527) : error C2664: 'int XFILE::CFile::Stat(_stat64 *)' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'stat *' to '_stat64 *'
Types pointed to are unrelated; conversion requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast

yeah... i've tried to compile it myself on win32, no joy.

suspect this will be resolved when the windows beta ships.
