Are they actually 64-bit applications though or just "designed to work with 64-bit Windows" as they stated.

Yes, they state Vista 64-bit, however I beta test for PC Tools and I have run them on my Windows 7 machine with no problems.

Thats what Im trying to confirm. stating that they run on 64-bit windows is not the same as the actual program being natively compiled as 64-bit itself. The actual programs you linked could be 32-bit applications that run on a 64-bit operating system.

Yes, like most programs they can run on multiple OS's.

Designed for Windows® Vista™ 64-bit SP1, Vista™ 32-bit, XP (Home and Professional Editions) and 2000.

So, if you're looking just for specify apps that only run on 64-bit, then I made a mistake and maybe a moderator could pull the post or I could edit it and delete the info.

What we're looking for in this thread are applications that are native 64-bit rather than 32-bit apps that happen to run in 64-bit Windows.

THe Gimp now has a native 64 bit in beta if that's allowed - works fine

GIMP - Windows installers

Also for anyone looking for x64 software this site can be useful ....

The gimp and Openoffice (I think that may be available in x64 too), are the two best open source software packages ever written

I beg to differ!

BLENDER is definitely one of the very best open source packages ever!
And there is a x64 version: Blender

It does not have an installer but comes in an archive...still, it is 64-bit! =)

By the way, I was going to post about GIMP, but I tried their x64 version and was not running well on my Win7 RC. It started up, but the menus weren't working correctly...but maybe others will have better luck?
