From my understanding, when installing from the CD / DVD it's supposed to recognize your operating system & install the correct version.  Everyone gets the same CD because FS / VFO doesn't have a clue as to what operating systems people are running.  Also, it will install both 32 & 64 bit components, OCR, is an example.  Look in your control panel / Programs & Features, & there are both 32 & 64 bit files.  I'm not trying to argue or debate with you, because God only knows that just about every computer user, at 1 time or another, has had something happen that defies 1 or both logic / common sense!  LOL

I know because I installed JAWS on my new 64 bit computer from the DVD
in 2013 and the 32 bit version was installed.  I have never installed
from the DVD again and now just download and install the 64 bit
version.
