Hi, is Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware take advantage of the 64-Bit? I'm pretty sure it's not. Also, does making an application in the 64-bit type require a rewrite?

Our protection module has components compiled as 64-bit binaries, which only install on 64-bit editions of Windows. The main application will probably remain 32-bit though.

@ GT500

Wait, so does the protection module fully work on 32 bit systems then?

I'm confused.

The protection module fully works on every Windows OS from Windows 2000 forward both x86 and x64

Yes, on 32-bit editions of Windows it installs 32-bit binaries for the protection module, and on 64-bit editions of Windows it installs 64-bit binaries for the protection module.

mbamgui.exe is always 32-bit, as is mbam.exe.

@ GT500

hehe I should have read your first reply a bit better.

mbamgui.exe is always 32-bit, as is mbam.exe.

Does that mean that they'll also work on 64 bit though?

Yes. 64-bit editions of Windows have WoW64 (Windows on Windows 64-bit) which is a compatibility layer to allow 32-bit applications to run on 64-bit versions of Windows. It can seem a bit complicated, but it allows 32-bit applications to run in 32-bit mode on a 64-bit processor while a 64-bit operating system is running.
