Hi Haiyong -

Yes - our plan is to support win64 from the start with slicer4 -- we 
hope to have some early binary versions before the January NA-MIC 
meeting.  If it looks feasible, we might try to backport changes to slicer3.

Regarding the possible difficulties, well, it's not clear yet - nothing 
should be problematic in theory, but there are probably some practical 
issues to sort through.  If you try a win64 slicer3 do let us know how 
it goes - if you run into any issues, try posting them to the 
slicer-devel mailing list.
