On 64-bit Windows OS, ZENworks 11 installs to Program files (x86) .  Is there need for anything special to get 64-bit jvm support?


This is by design for backwards compatibility with previous versions.  The install determines the OS architecture so there is no need to do anything special.
Running this:
cd %ZENWORKS_HOME%\share\java\bin
java -version
Will show that the correct x64 version of java has been installed.
