Additional Information

We cannot provide a 64-bit version of Rfc Connector, because SAP has not released a 64 Bit SAP GUI yet. As soon as a native 64-bit SAP GUI is available, we will release 64 bit version of Rfc Connector. According to SAP Note 1442028, a 64 bit version of SAP GUI is planned, but there is no fixed release date yet.
