v10 works fine on 64bit, so I'd assume 11 does as well.
I've just purchased a 64-bit WIndows 7 machine to install FMS 11 for development. I'm new to Windows 7 and using 64-bit, and I haven't started using Server 11 yet.
After installing FMS I received an error 500 when the installer tried to open the Admin Console. I can't seem to get around this. I've disabled the firewall completely, checked the FM Server and Bonjour services, removed all Java versions except 6.0.16 and am using Firefox 3.6.3. I also tried IE8 but am not clear on the Java version.
I also tried the same to access Server from an XP Pro SP3 machine.
All this to no avail. I can't seem to get the Admin Console up. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Here's another possible solution when you get a 500
Also, there might be a log file somewhere with useful error messages. I'm not sure for Windows, but for Mac it's "/Library/FileMaker Server/Admin/admin-master-tomcat/logs/AdminServer.log", so maybe the Windows log file has the same filename.
Can you install Server on 7?
to all ...
until now, i didnt install server (10 or 11) on a 64 bit windows, so i can´t tell. But my FMPA 11 is running well on a Windows 7 64 bit.

For FMS, see p. 8 and 39 of the FMS Getting Started Guide: http://www.filemaker.com/support/product/docs/fms/fms11_getting_started_en.pdf
These seem to indicate that FMS was tested by FM Inc. on 64 bit Windows, but you need the 32 bit Java 6 update 16.
For FM and FM Advanced, the official word of FM Inc. can be read in the Knowledge Base:
So, the client versions are not tested and officially supported on 64 bit Windows , and it's your risk if you use it in a productive environment.
