      The following issue has been pointed out by on our Users ML.

      Here's the original mail:
      ---------------------------------------
      Hi list,

      I am not sure if it's the right place to ask this, but here it goes. Is there
      any particular reason why I can't install the Apache Directory Studio
      stand-alone plug-ins on x86_64 eclipse through Help->Software Updates? The
      error message I get is something in the lines of "architecture mismatch". The
      odd thing is that when I manualy copy the plugins to my working eclipse
      install they work just fine.

      Are there really any architecture dependant files in the plugins? If so, is it
      possible to have a x86_64 version built as well? If not, why can't I install
      it?

        Thanks for pointing that out.

        I'll fill a Jira for this issue.

        As we had a problem with the x86_64 version of the LDAP Studio RCP Application (version 0.8.0), which was running on AMD64, we tagged all the plugins as compatible for ppc and x86 only.

        That was a mistake since, as you said, the standalone plugins works great on x86_64 too.

        Thanks to Andreas Roth, one of our users on AMD64, we managed to fix the problem on that platform, and we have to release LDAP Studio 0.8.0 for AMD64.

        Since we need to update the downloads section to add this new version of the RCP application, we'll also change the features properties to add the x86_64 architecture as well and update the updatesite.

        I'll tell you when the updatesite will be uptodate, so you can test it and give us feedback.
