Should probably pick away at this for the next release. Need compiler choice, build options, etc.
Looks like stock mingw is going to get 64-bit support sometime about NEVER, so:
And there's some pitfalls going on:
Dependencies with 64-bit Windows installer:
What is the status on this one? It would be very nice to have this. Are there any specific problems which prevent a successful compile?
There still isn't a Windows 64-bit installer for numpy, so that's a bit of a sticking point. It also looks like python(x,y) doesn't have a 64-bit version yet, either.
We don't have any particular known issues that would prevent SpacePy in particular from installing on 64-bit Windows, just that the free compiler situation is pretty sticky. Feel free to give it a spin, and patches are definitely welcome.

There are definitely people working on getting numpy going, and once that happens we should have a chance of leveraging that work.
A user has let us know that Anaconda now ships a free Python distribution for 64-bit Windows. Some poking around indicates that it also bundles up gfortran so f2py will work, so I should be able to get an installer going to at least work with Anaconda. I'll also look into getting SpacePy included in Anaconda.
