will windows AMD64 64-BIT executeables be supported by UPX in future too?
Version 3.01w still doesn't compress it.
I have no 64-bit machine and no 64 bit windows. This makes win64/pe support a bit tricky.
if you have no AMD64 compatible machine, it is possible to emulate one with qemu:

YES, but it would be __E__X__T__R__E__M__E__L__Y__ slow.
BTW: Nice 10 KiB screenshot :-)
I can give you Remote Desktop access to a 64-bit XP machine (fresh and unused installation), if that might help.
Thanks for your offer. Unfortunately nowdays I do not have time for UPX.
For AMD64 I recommend PESpin x64 http://pespin.w.interia.pl/ solid tool:)
PeSpin worked fine on the exes I tested, but nothing compares to UPX. I hope one day winpe64 is supported …
I second this - Windows x64 compressor would be brilliant. Without this I can't offer a 64 bit build my application (Aerofoil) as UPX compressed like the 32 bit version.
Is there any ETA on this feature? Win x64 has been out since April 25 2005.
Seconded! Support for 64-bit executables would be really, REALLY useful!
And with the upcoming of 64-bit OS'es in general, it might be of paramount importance to the continuity of UPX. Would be a shame to see UPX become deprecated! :(
Sorry to say it but there are indeed a couple of others that do compress 64bit (and .net) executables.. I won't mention what they are.. I still use UPX for anything 32bit (love it) but to compress a 64bit exe I had to look elsewhere and found some other great compressors!
I wish pay a freelance to do it because the software is under GPL, but some clause forbid the usage is this case.
I hope that you can find the time to further develop this wonderful tool and to make it capable of supporting AMD64 64-BIT executables in just the same way (or better) as UPX currently handles win32/pe.
Thanks for your work - keep it up !
I'm a long time fan of UPX. And I'm just testing out the brand new Win64 support in UPX 3.91w, for HeidiSQL distribution. Works perfectly. No drawbacks or issues here. After compiling, my 64bit build is
Everything's peachy so far. So I tend to use it for nightly builds already, although you said "use for testing only".
Cool. Thanks for your report.
