    I believe it relates to your computer...the one your are using to install the OS. I have a Windows Vista 64 laptop so I download the 64-bit version.

    you most likely have 32-bit. To check right-click on My Computer and select Properties. It will say something like "Windows XP 64-bit Edition" if it is 64. If it doesn't say that it will be the default of 32-bit

    The only difference is the path it installs the files to. In 32 bit systems your app loader files are in the "Program files" folder and in 64 bit versions in the "Program Files (x86)" folder.

    I don't believe XP comes in a 64bit version, only 32bit. It is Vista that can be either.

    Xp comes in a 64bit version as well. But it never gained much momentum.

    right click on "my computer" and click properties...
    under operating system it should say 32-bit or 64-bit...
    if you have 64-bit download the x64(64-bit) version of the hybrid... if you have 32-bit download the x86(32-bit) version...

    Chances are if you don't know--you're on a 32-bit set up (x86)

    I loaded it in VMWare and took some screenshots of XP x64. Hopefully it will help. Also, only XP Professional was available in x64 or x86(32bit), XP Home only came as x86(32bit).

    At boot


    System Properties
    right click on My Computer>Select Properties or Control Panel>System


    The Folders
    My Computer>Local Disk (usually C)


    System Information
    Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information


    The only difference is the path it installs the files to. In 32 bit systems your app loader files are in the "Program files" folder and in 64 bit versions in the "Program Files (x86)" folder.
    Actually 64bit apps go in the Program Files, and the 32bit apps go in the Program Files (x86) and run from the WOW64 subsystem(a translation layer), which creates a 32-bit environment that provides the interfaces required to allow 32-bit Windows applications to run unmodified in the 64-bit system.
    So theoretically, you should be able to run the x86 or x64 app on a x64 OS.

    yeah...most avg pc users are running 32 bit...although some manufacturers are shipping 64 bit versions. it's funny...64 bit architecture is basically standard b/c of how cheap it is to manufacture everything now...from the boards to cpu...framework... but nobody really takes advantage of it...
    and trust me... vista 32 bit doesn't compare to 64 bit...and same with xp.....

    As people have said, and shown, above... XP did have a 64-bit version. Actually, all versions of Windows of the "NT lineage" had 64-bit versions, just for different CPU architectures such as the UltraSparc and Alpha.

    But you generally have to go out of your way to get XP x64, so there's about a 99.99% chance that you have a 32-bit version if you have any doubt at all.

    I stand corrected, I had never seen the XP 64bit. Note that I said "I don't believe", not definitively that it did not.

    Hmmm, you sound like you know what you are talking about... Why is it then that my apploader files are in the Program Files (x86) folder, but I'm definately running Vista with 64bit? I get it, apploader is a 32bit app and thats why its in there... So i'm basically right with what I said? Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm always up for info from someone who knows more about something than I do.
