Thanks Maciej. I think you are most likely right. Your reply prompted me to dig further to figure out how to proceed. Can you elaborate further to give me a push start?

1) Find, install, configure, use "a special 64-bit file access API"
This is probably the simpler of the two however I how no idea how to do it. Can you direct me on this or point me to some reading material?

2) Build "the binary in 64-bit mode"
I hope I don't have to do this so I'll explore this last.
