I have a Dell M6700 running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I have gotten my smart card to work with chrome, firefox, thunderbird, ie 32-bit, collabnet svn client 32-bit.

When I use ie 64-bit, it never asks me for my smart card's pin, and then just errors out. When I use svn 64-bit (collabnet or tortoisesvn), same thing happens.

I could use some pointers.

So obviously you need 64-bit drivers for the card ... – user3463 Oct 26 '12 at 2:39
@RandolphWest - The reader already works so this isn't a driver problem. It just doesn't work when ued against a 64-bit browser. This is likely a problem with the fact you need a 64-bit plugin of collabnet that supports IEx64 – Ramhound Oct 26 '12 at 9:38
I meant 64-bit plugin, not driver. You are correct. – user3463 Oct 26 '12 at 19:25
would you mind clarifying on what you mean by plugin? I'm woefully unfamiliar with drivers. If it helps, I don't believe that I'm using collabnet via ie64 as a plugin, (or maybe it is doing that and no one's told me). If I misunderstood your suggestion.... – Joshua Oct 28 '12 at 7:22

The vendor of the middleware hadn't released 64bit drivers, which was not documented anywhere, hence the mystery.
