  • Shoretel Call Manager on 64bit Winders

    Will this work? (Mine isn't
    I haven't located anything on the shoretel site indicating 64 bit windows isn't supported and I've loaded it a couple of times (the client) and I don't get any errors.

    TIA

    There is a message on the site, though it is rather generic:
    http://support.shoretel.com/kb/view.php?id=331

    So it appears 64 bit versions of Windows are not supported as client or server.

      Any Workaround?

      Has any work around been found for this yet? I have a couple workstations in the office that are 64 bit and they would love to be able to use call manager?

        As far as I know 64 bit is on the road map, but not ETA, check with your partner or ShoreTel Sales Engineer on this. It may be coming in 8.1 I am not sure, possibly Chris or Charles may know

          Any real timeline for 64bit client?

          Hi, New to the fold, system installed this week.

          I am seeing a few posts in the forum regarding 64bit windows clients. I also in in need a ca call manager client in 64bit for a few systems.
          Has anyone heard of an official time line?
          I'm considering a VMware workstation client OS as a temprary option to give some of the functionality. Anyone tried this as a temp fix?

          Thanks,
          Mike

                Shoretel Shoreware 9.0 Call Manager Vista 64bit support

                Shoretel just released Shoreware 9.0 and again Call manager does not support Vista 64bit OS nor integration with Exchange 2007 and MS Unified massaging or Office Communications Server ? Why is it Shoretel have over all nice product but always, always running behind on software development, how hard it is to hire good programmer and keep up with technology, especially if they want to compete with Cisco , Mitel, Avya? What is the ETA for Shoretel call manager to support Vista 64bit OS that been around for over 2 years already.

                  My suggestion if your a ShoreTel Partner, Reseller, Customer, Invester or Enterprise Contract customer to Contact your marketing rep and discuss the ShoreTel Road map with them.

                  I am sure there is a Roadmap, ShoreTel places emphasis by Market Priority.
                  At the Moment even Industry leaders have seen the slow migration of 64 bit off of 32 bit. Because a single company or better a few companies are moving to adopt 64 bit, does not mandate a move by OEMs. Yes it is true 64 bit is the wave of the future, but, it simply has yet to move as quickly as many had predicted a few years back.

                  The executive in charge of delivering Windows 7, the next version of Windows, made an appeal this week to developers to put in extra effort to write 64-bit versions of their applications as well as 32-bit programs to run on the new operating system.

                  "Please, please develop for 64-bit ... we think a lot of people are going to run in 64-bit with Windows 7 … So do everything you can to bring your code up to speed on 64-bit," Steven Sinofsky, Microsoft senior vice president of Windows and Windows Live engineering, told attendees at the company's Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles.

                  The majority of new PCs sold today have 64-bit processors but are still running 32-bit operating systems, including Windows Vista x86. That looks as if it may be about to change.

                  "We're in the middle of a transition to 64-bit computing," Laing told this morning's audience. It was inevitable that this would happen, he went on, but now's as good a time as any given the fact that memory prices are continuing to fall. Historically the transitions to 16-bit and 32-bit computing were difficult to make, he said - perhaps he could have called them excruciating. "But once we get through it, you look back and realize all the benefits, and realize it was the right thing for the industry.

                    Hi. Well this is may be true but in the same sense just look at the new Windows Server platforms, they don’t even offer 32 bin on some of the products any longer. Some software only available as 64bit platform. The shoretel is business phone system platform and most of the businesses, specially new are running 64bit. I am in silicon valley same as shoretel and I can say this as a fact. If this systems would be home base phone system, not questions there, it is still 32bit world. Businesses are running thought 64bit applications more and more and deprive 64bit users of this application don’t make too much sense.

                        Shoretel Shoreware 9.0 Call Manager Vista 64bit support

                        Guys

                        Check the 9.1 roadmap!!!!!.

                        64 Bit Vista is coming, but not for XP.

                        Why not ask ShoreTel before bleating or complaining.

                        If you want, go buy Mitel, Avaya and Cisco. then you will really have something to complain about.

                        Always realistic

                            Its a shame people are running 64 bit Windoze on 32 bit hardware. Come on, who ya foolin'. They have been tricked into thinking their systems are really 64 bit when they are really just 32 bit with some 64 bit extensions. True 64 bit means Opteron and Itanium, as well as MIPS R12K, and some PowerPC. Don't be fooled by all the hype.!
