32 bit program on a 64 bit machine?


  • Will my 32 bit program rn on a 64 bit machine? Do I have to do anything special to make it run? I don't have a 64 bit machine, but some of my customers do and they are having problems. How can I help them?

    Yes, but for Itanium machine, we cannot run 32bit application. In fact, WOW64 is the x86 emulator that allows 32-bit Windows-based applications to run seamlessly on 64-bit Windows. WOW64 is provided with the operating system and does not have to be explicitly enabled.
