    SO I had a minecraft server on my old pc.

    Built a new computer and installed Windows 7 x64.

    I transferred all my server files over but only had start 32-bit server file and not the start-64 bit server.

    Basically I was wondering how do I get the 64-bit start server file or just how do I set it up in general.

    Thankyou in advance.
  2. If your using the server startup code from the Bukkit Wiki it should work as it contains methods for both 32 and 64 bit machines

    Quite simply - no matter which OS you use, this command will work:

    java -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui

    Of course, this assumes you have Java installed and your OS PATH variable is set correctly. It also assumes the craftbukkit download is renamed to craftbukkit.jar.

    If you visit with a 32bit browser it will not give you the 64bit java installer download (last checked a week ago anyway). go to with ie64. If you already had java installed remove it first. if you hit start and type java it will either bring up "java" or "java (32)" to check

    Hey thanks guys I reinstalled Java with the IEx64 (thought I couldnt find the link on the 32 bit). Its working but I'm still running off the 32 bit starter. Do you know where I can get the 64 bit starter?

    Thanks again.

    IF /I "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE:~-2%"=="64" "%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar "%~dp0craftbukkit-0.0.1-snapshot.jar"
    IF /I "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE:~-2%"=="86"  java -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar "%~dp0craftbukkit-0.0.1-snapshot.jar"
    that? should just be a path difference. the launch command is the same otherwise. and there is no 32/64bit .jar. it's the same jar for both.

    Type java -version into your cmd prompt. It should output the version you are running. In my tests (Windows 7) - as soon as I install x64 Java, my java -version reported using x64 Java VM.
    java version "1.6.0_23"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_23-b05)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 19.0-b09, mixed mode)
    My code will still work for x64 Java.
