Important Announcement re. 32-bit version of Map360

Effective August 2018 MicroSurvey Software Inc. will no longer produce 32-bit versions of Map360.

As the MicroSurvey product lines advance, so does the underlying technology that powers our computers and operating systems. While specialized 64-bit processors have been around for decades, their use in personal computers have become widespread since the releases of Windows XP x64 Edition in 2005, Windows Vista in 2006 and especially Windows 7 in 2009. The primary benefit of 64-bit architecture is that a system can exceed 4 GB of addressable memory and today it is common for a personal computer to have 16 GB, 32 GB or more of RAM.

Our analysis of market trends and our customer base has shown that the 64-bit versions of Map360 have become predominant over the past several years, and in 2018 over 92% of Map360 installations are on a 64-bit system. By focusing on only the 64-bit version, we will be able to provide more bug fixes, new features and faster updates to our customer base. It should be noted that Evidence Recorder is not affected by this change.

We will continue to distribute both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of current and legacy Map360 releases through the IMS Helpdesk.

MicroSurvey Software Inc. will continue to provide technical support to any customer with a current Annual Maintenance Subscription contract for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of its current and supported legacy releases.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact MicroSurvey Software Inc. at 1-800-668-3312 or +1-250-707-0000.
