Think you guys got off the point.
He didn't say the 64 bit din't work with windows 10 it was NVDA
it didn't work with.
So far with win 11 you can still run 32 bit. However, Microsoft
did state that after 11 32 bit useage would be dropping off just
like internet explorer. Then even NVDA will need a complete
rewrite to 64 bit seeing how its only 32 bit now.

Going 64 bit is really benefitial for certain types of
software, for example file compression software, antiviruses etc
that use lots of memory and CPU cycles. I will get around to
nuking 64 bit reader, but I wish it had worked especially since
Quentin on this list earlier had said he had no issues.

I can say, with absolute certainty, that at one point
(probably in the past) Microsoft explicitly instructed to use
the 32-bit version of Office unless you needed something that
could not be had without the 64-bit.
But, my statement is about what we techs "on the ground"
routinely advise, particularly after an issue has reared its
ugly head with a 64-bit version of anything. For lots of stuff
I still just install the 32-bit because it's the "most focused
upon" in the development cycles at the moment. That's
definitely going to change, and I wish it had changed ages ago,
but there has always been a need to keep the 32-bit stuff "in
tip top shape" since it can run under a 32-bit and 64-bit
version of Windows.
There's lots of 64-bit software, I'd say most of it,
that you won't have a single, solitary problem with. But if you
are, or suspect you might based upon reports such as those made
in this topic, and a 32-bit version exists, then nuke the 64-bit
install and then install the 32-bit version.
