32 bit vs 64 bit

Recommended Posts

Just received hd pro 2015.  it will run either 32 bit or 64 bit.  What is the advantage of running one vs the other.  my computer is 64 bit.

 

Thanks

The advantage is the 64 bit version on a 64 bit PC or Mac will handle twice as much data per unit of time, especially important for larger, complex plan files.

Of course one must learn how to properly create a plan file, a corrupt plan file that contains too many wrong guesses and paradoxical settings will not run well on any PC or Mac. So it is incumbent upon the end user to learn their tools and use the software as it is as opposed to how one might think it ought to be. This is more important than 32 bit or 64 bit.

thanks for your reply David.  I have been using Hd pro since version 7 and I am well versed in the software.  I have never used it in 64 bit before and didn't know what the advantage would be.  Thanks again for your response.

As David said , assuming you had 64bit Windows AND a 64 bit CPU/computer use the 64 bit , not sure you can install the 64bit version on 32bit windows anyway if that is what you have ?
