The server only offers Distributed.net Client 1.04 windows_intelx86 (ati14)
Machine in question is AMD 1090t with Radeon HD 4290.

I'll setup an app_info.xml to force the 64 bit app if there is one.

There's no real benefit on having the wrapper/client logic parts as 64-bit for GPU clients. This is because the actual work happens inside a GPU, which is not related to bits in the executable. That's why only 32-bit apps are available for GPU crunchers.

Even if I'd want to provide a 64-bit wrapper for GPUs, upstream only provides 32-bit GPU clients anyway. Therefore, I'd recommend not to worry about this.

Is there some particular reason you'd want a 64-bit wrapper/client?
