  • Start64!Not surprisingly, the release of Windows 8 has been accompanied by an avalanche of questions related to upgrading. And here’s a classic question: You’re running a 32-bit version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, but you want to upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 8. How does that work?

  • Start64!The two major editions of Windows 8, Windows 8 (standard) and Windows 8 Pro, can each come in either 64-bit or 32-bit format. Knowing which type of Windows 8 you have is important so you choose the correct drivers and software for your operating system.

  • Start64!Running a virtualised version of Windows XP on a Windows 7 PC can be useful for running legacy software programs. But the most popular way of doing so limits you to 32bit XP, and therefore on 3GB RAM. Here's how to run 64bit Windows XP on a Windows 7 PC or laptop.

  • Start64!In an answer to a previous query, our HelproomEditor explained to a reader how to run GWBasic on a 64bit Windows PC. But as another reader subsequently pointed out - a simpler solution might be to simply run a 32bit version of Windows. Here, our Helproom Editor explains how to run 16bit software on a 32bit installation of Windows, as well as pointing out some of the major differences between 32bit and 64bit Windows.

  • Start64!My last music computer DAW has been running for a long time. And like everybody else I added bits and pieces, trials, bought software, hardware, tried free instruments and fx and twiddled around until everything ran in more or less perfect harmony to my need. Unfortunately a production system costs money – and, frankly, it really sums up through the years.

  • Start64!While many PC users have hardware and operating systems in their machines that are considered old or even obsolete, PC owners who use the Steam download service from Valve tend to stay more on the cutting edge of PC hardware and software development. Valve has given the option for Steam users to upload their hardware specs to the company to create a survey of their users.

  • Start64!It's that time of the week again, the glorious and much loved weekend, and that means that we have a weekend poll for everyone. This weekend we're asking whether you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows as your main installation; despite the benefits of 64-bit Windows such as increased RAM allowance and performance improvements for 64-bit-specific applications, we suspect that a number of people here still use the 32-bit version of Windows.

  • Start64!Today’s browsers are constantly trying to improve and beat their competition. This ranges from behind-the-scenes changes to improved speed or standards support, user interface changes for a cleaner look, or even the addition of entirely new features.However, the developers of all those browsers haven’t been very active (or successful) in one type of improvement that could potentially bring some massive results: going from 32-bit to 64-bit.

  • Start64!DimplesAkaKaren noticed that Windows came with two versions of Internet Explorer. She asked the Answer Line forum which she should use. - The 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Vista come with both 32- and 64-bit variations of Internet Explorer. But the operating systems default to using the 32-bit brower.

  • Start64!One of the most frequently asked questions around here these days is what exactly the difference is between a 32- and 64-bit client of World of Warcraft. Blizzard, which has been hinting at a 64-bit WoW client for some time now, has finally announced that such a client exists and can be downloaded for testing on the PTR. This is great news for people with computers that have large amounts of RAM and hefty processors, as well as great news for general improvements to WoW's structure itself.

  • Start64!Developments in central processing unit architecture have enabled CPU manufacturers to integrate multiple processors, called cores, into a single unit. Computers have been using 32-bit registers for over a decade, but modern CPU cores utilize 64-bit architecture in order to make use of higher RAM capacities. Determining whether to go with a 32-bit or 64-bit multi-core CPU, however, depends on your needs.

  • Start64!When it comes to purchasing new peripherals and extension cards, two major concerns for computer owners are hardware and software compatibility. Terms like "64-bit" can be confusing and may cause confusion among buyers. You can confirm that the graphics card you want to buy will be compatible with your hardware and operating system by following a few recommendations.

  • Start64!A: You now have the choice to use the 32-bit or 64-bit version of most Windows OSs today (except for the latest server OS, Windows Server 2008 R2, which is now exclusively 64-bit). The reasons to go 64-bit include greater access to memory for 64-bit applications, access to more than 4GB of physical RAM (although often systems only see around 3GB because other devices use up the memory address space), and improved security capabilities. However, a common question is, does the 64-bit version actually use more memory than the 32-bit counterpart?

  • Start64!SixtyFour lists apps that will open in 64-bit mode and facilitates the changing of a preference to force the apps to open in 32-bit mode.

  • Start64!There are people who can hardly wait to upgrade to it, while others already fear its novelty. There are people who expect an improvement in quality, while others do not make full use even of the existing capacities. There are people who use technical aspects as arguments, while others think that those mean-spirited marketing people have cooked up something again to get the money out of their pockets. Who is right? Who will benefit from the 64-bit technology, and who will not? After all, what is 64-bit?

  • Start64!Windows x64 offers 32-bit compatibility on user software level. It does not support 16-bit software any more. In terms of changeover, this is a similar situation as it was in case of the 32-bit changeover. This situation is, however, better by one aspect: now, compatibility of a new operating system is highly extendable by means of virtualisation. Although the original purpose of virtualisation, of course, was not the extension of compatibility, it is still a very good, often the only possibility to do it.

  • Start64!An article with the above title has been published, which, for the first sight, seemed pretty trivial to me. Everybody knows exactly if he/she has a 64-bit CPU, so there’s no point in wasting time on it, this must be another needless article – I thought. Yet, I could not get it out of my head and started to study the problem from several aspects. This issue may be very important since when you buy or build a new computer nowadays, you pay virtually the same amount for both a 32-bit and a 64-bit rig.
