Build Identifier: 

I'm trying to install Lightning into Lanikai version 3.1.7 with Windows 7. When I try to install it, I get the following "Incompatible Extension" error: 

"Lightning" could not be installed because it is not compatible with your Lanikai build type (WINNT_x86_64-msvc). Please contact the author of this item about the problem. 

I can't find an installation package for a Windows x_86_64 version of Lightning. Is there one? 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Lanikai v. 3.1.7 x86_64 in Windows 7.
2. Click Tools | Add-ons. 
3. Locate Lightning in the Recommended Add-ons pane and click [Add to Lanikai...]
Actual Results:  
I received the following "Incompatible Extension" error: 

"Lightning" could not be installed because it is not compatible with your Lanikai build type (WINNT_x86_64-msvc). Please contact the author of this item about the problem. 


Expected Results:  
I expected a successful installation of Lightning for Lanikai 3.1.7 

I can't find an installation package for a Windows x_86_64 version of Lightning. Is there one?

Dicussion about this is at http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2036453 

It seems as there is no 64bit Windows support yet. 

I think you could install a 32 bit Thunderbird...

The 64-bit version of Lanikai is an unsupported version provided by a contributor. Thunderbird does not yet officially support 64 bit windows (nor does it provide builds).

Not currently, because until the 64-bit Thunderbird builds are official, or at least generated for nightlies, there's no reason for Lightning 64-bit builds to be made available (this doesn't, of course, stop outside contributions of those builds).

I tried to find a bug for providing 64 bit builds of thunderbird, but could not find it. is it tracked somewhere? I wanted to block this bug on that one ...

No bug for Thunderbird 64-bit build.  About Seamonkey, it is bug 482143.

I've filed bug 634233 for the Thunderbird support.
Comment 6 Stefan Sitter 2015-03-25 14:05:54 PDT
Should we resolve this as WFM?

For every win64 Thunderbird nightly test build there is a corresponding win64 Lightning test build available from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/nightly/latest-comm-central/
Comment 7 Philipp Kewisch [:Fallen] 2015-03-25 15:53:16 PDT
I think those builds are only created for central and aurora. If this gets enabled for beta we might need to take additional steps, I would have to merge the windows builds like I do the linux builds. I'm fine with closing this WFM. If you happen to see win64 beta builds of Thunderbird show up please let me know.
