I run IDEA in 64 bit mode, in fact I don't even have a 32 bit JDK installed on my machine. I usually start IDEA by running IDEA.BAT in the "bin" directory of the installation. (If I click directly on IDEA.EXE, it squawks about no 32-bit JDK.)
I recently noticed IDEA64.exe in the "bin" directory and tried running it, and hey, it works!
My question - is there any difference in running IDEA through the IDEA.BAT file versus running the IDEA64.EXE directly? It appears to, but I thought I'd check to be sure.

The JDK is the x64 version.
Anybody know the answer to this?
