All support info says OS X 10.7.5 is 64 bit, yet the tools report otherwise.


I'm trying to install a SonicWall VPN netExtender and it says I'm running 32 bit and will not install the 64 bit libraries.


This system was just reinstalled at the genius bar and I worry that I have the wrong kernel.

Or are the Lion Tools just wrong?
