According to my latest information you should wait a little longer...
Somewhere around the summer of 2011 is what I heard.
It is obvious that that version is not STEP7 V5.4....

Hello !

So does it mean that our Simatic Manager , basically , is a 32-bit application & it will still remain 32-bit application even with the new releases? ........... or did I got it wrong? ..... because many forums (other than this) discuss about 32-bit version Windows & 64-bit version of Windows but we don't hear anything like 32-bit Step7 or 64-bit Step7 version !! 
Regards
