Did you get it working on Windows with 5.4? Reason I ask is that when I built with ACE 5.4 for Windows the IP address was switched, ie: would end up being transposed into If I entered the IP address backwards in the webconfig.ini it worked. When I upgraded to ACE 5.6 this bug went away on Windows.

What issues are you seeing with dbxml? I have been using 64bit server on Windows for several days now without issue.

ACE indeed is not an issue, since i already did a 64 bit compilation, working.
The real issue is dbxml, which can't be upgraded from the internal one and any 
small minor version change on the base db cause the most unusual crashes.

64 bits in linux is doable, but requires a little effort and i don't think 
would be possible for a mapguide release
