Running 32-bit apps on 64-bit OS
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have a computer that has a 64-bit capable processor and was thinking about running XP 64-bit instead of the regular XP Pro I'm currently using. However, none of my applicaitons (as far as I know) are 64-bit apps. Can I run these apps on the 64-bit version of XP without anything else.
The list of apps I need are:
Office 2003 Pro
Acrobat 8.0 Pro
VLC Media Player
Can most 32-bit apps run on a 64-bit system? Also, what about device drivers? Will I need special drivers for 64-bit? Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
