I've searched around Microsoft's site, I've been able to find everything except a x64 version for windows 7.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 Professional

Is there any other version of "Windows Services for UNIX 3.x" I could use?

Services for UNIX 3.5 is an old version for previous versions of Windows.

Windows 7 comes with the current version of the Subsystem for UNIX-based applications. You can install it as a Windows component like you would install IIS. (As in click start..control..programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off...) It is no longer a stand-alone product, it is now a part of Windows.

Unfortunately it doesn't work on Windows 7 Professional, you need Enterprise or Ultimate.

"Ultimate or better"? What's better than ultimate? – Daniel Beck Oct 19 '11 at 17:14

@grawity You won't find me disagreeing. – Daniel Beck Oct 19 '11 at 18:05
