Re: [Bulk] Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit



Unless you have purchased a JAWS professional version, you cannot run it on
a machine with XP professional.

64-bit does not really apply with respect to professional versions, but
perhaps the only version of 64-bit XP is a professional version -- someone
else will have to address that question.

Fascinating thread. Are 64 bit and professional synonymous? Someone
gave me a PC running the professional version of XP, and since my
current PC running XP Home Edition has finally developed more issues
than I have the time, money, and/or inclination to sort out, I'd like
to try it, but I get an error message when I try to use JAWS 11 on it.
Any suggestions?

Early reports from supposedly reliable sources stated that 64-bit OS's
could not run 32-bit programs. That's the main reason I stuck with
32-bit when going to XP. Only later did I learned the error.

I don't know of any 32-bit programs that won't run on a 64-bit system,
although I suppose there may be some. But, that is what the
folder is for, that's where the 32-bit programs that run in Win 7 or
64-bit editions live.

Jaws is available in either 32 or 64-bit editions. If you have the Jaws

installation DVD, it will recognize which version you need for your
if not, just go to the FS site and download the correct version.
Take my advice, I don't use it anyway.

32 vs. 64 bit has to do with the way the computer physically addresses
data; literally 32 or 64 pieces of information at a time (specifically
that many ones or zeros at a time-- that's what a "bit" is, a one or a
zero in binary computing. Multiple bits comprise a byte. Enough bytes
a "k", then megs, gigs, etc.)

You must run the correct bit OS on the appropriate processor.
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.

JAWS 9 was 32 bit only. At the time that was out, Freedom told me they
no intention of supporting 64 bit machines in the future. Once most
machines started going 32 bit, they changed their tune a bit. (Pun

I assume current JAWS has a dual installer that works on both? I know

I have Jaws 12, but have reverted to Jaws 11 as 12 was crashing too

I'm afraid I need to think seriously about a new computer.

I'm still with XP Home.

Can someone tell me what would be the major difference between
Windows 7
32 bit or 64 bit?
