Searching for
"i64" itanium -OpenVMS
in english-language pages there are some references

I like "i64" because "i" can be read as "Itanium",  but I tend to read
 "IA" as "Intel Architecture", which becomes misleading.   Just my
personal preference. I can be wrong with it.

Tested on Vista 64-bit. Installs and runs OK.

I was not able to change service startup type from Automatic to Manual
using the tomcat5w panel, but I think we have already heard about such
a problem.
