Should I install the 32-bit or 64-bit version of my software?

As a general rule, you should install 32-bit software if your operating system (OS) is 32-bit, and 64-bit software if your OS is 64-bit.

Note Most 32-bit software can be run on a machine with a 64-bit OS, but 64-bit software can only run on a machine with a 64-bit OS. If ever in doubt, it is strongly recommended that you install the 32-bit version of your software.

To find out if your computer has a 32-bit or 64-bit OS:

  • For Windows 8 users:
    1. Tap or click Search.
    2. In the search field, type: "system".
    3. Tap or click Settings.
    4. Tap or click System.
    5. Find your system type under the heading: "System". Your OS will be identified as "32-bit Operating System" or "64-bit Operating System".
  • For Windows 7 users:
    1. In your computer's Start menu, right-click Computer and click Properties.
    2. Find your system type under the heading: "System". Your OS will be identified as "32-bit Operating System" or "64-bit Operating System".
