When I try to open a project that is being worked on at the office on Windows XP 32 with my laptop that has a Windows 7 x64, there is this following warning:

"The current project hasn't been edited with a 64bit version of ArchiCad before.

Since your 64 bit ArchiCAD is able to handle more memory and a larger model, some 32 bit clients might run into errors after they open/join the project (Or they receive your changes while teamworking)."

How much of a threat is this? My projects are not that huge - about 60-70 megabytes average.

Thanks for any input.
We came upon this. It's a warning because 64 bit can handle much larger projects. It should be OK with the sizes you mention.
I was just looking to see if there is a WIKI on this, but I didn't see one. Could be there though.
