If you are looking for software that uses Gambit's meshing approach, look at Trelis, from CSimsoft ( It is 64 bit, and in terms of GUI layout, geometry and meshing, it is very much based on Gambit, and it does not require exceed. It also exports native FLUENT mesh files.

If you are not familiar with Gambit, and are just looking for any mesh generator, then ANSYS Meshing is included with a FLUENT license, so you don't need to spend additional $$.

I hope this helps,
