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.
