Re: Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit

The problem in this case was not to do with Windows Vista or 7, but rather
that you were running JAWS 9, which didn't support Windows Vista, either 32
or 64-bit. There was no 64-bit version of JAWS 9 to my knowledge, and as was
established earlier in this thread, due to how closely the software
interacts with the OS, such a thing running on a 64-bit system would be no
less than a bad idea. Still, I think it should be pointed out that JAWS 9
doesn't even run on the 32-bit Vista, as it's not supported, therefore is
rather a non-issue.

Well, JAWS 9 comes to mind (which absolutely destroyed the OS on our Vista
PC when we bought a 64-bit machine), at least under Vista, as well as most
(if not all) virus protection software.
It can be really hit, or miss... (buyer beware).

installation DVD, it will recognize which version you need for your system;
if not, just go to the FS site and download the correct version.
Take my advice, I don't use it anyway.Applications vary. You can run some 32 bit applications on some 64 bit
machines which I assume requires some sort of emulation mode by the OS which
may be transparent to the user. 64 bit applications won't work for 32 bit.
both are currently supported one way or another.
32 bit or 64 bit?
