Thank you for diagnosing this problem. Can you please report this in
our bugzilla  ?
Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this because I have no machine with
x64 nor 8 GB of memory.
Do you get any error messages when you start evince from the command
line in a console? (Please add your answer to bugzilla).

The windows:mingw:win64 project builds a cross compiled version of
Evince for win64. Unfortunately, it does not package it into a windows
installer. Instead you have to download and unpack rpm packages
yourself. I think that if you use openSUSE you can just install the
mingw64-evince  package from that project and then just copy
/usr/i686-mingw64msvc/sys-root/mingw/* to your Windows 7 filesystem.
But be warned, I have no experience with it, so it might not work.
There currently is no win64 installer build because Wine was not
working on x64 before and I need Wine to run WiX to build the
installer. But I think Wine works on x64 now, so I might look into
building a win64 instaler again, when I can find some time.
