EIS 11 > X64?

Recommended Posts

I believe that if you do a fresh install then the installer automatically select the correct version for you. For those with x64 systems that upgraded from 10 to 11, the EAM/EIS folder will remain in Program Files (x86).

Let me clarify things a bit: When you upgrade to v11 you automatically get the x64 version if your Windows is x64, however the EAM/EIS folder will remain in Program Files (x86) which is where 32-bit applications are installed into on x64 systems. In other words, there is no need to worry.

Exactly. ;)

You can verify it by opening the Task Manager (hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys, and tap Esc) then switch to the Processes tab. 32-bit processes will have *32 right after the process name, so the 32-bit version of a2guard.exe would show in the Task Manager on 64-bit Windows as a2guard.exe *32 to show that it is 32-bit. If that *32 is missing, then it means it is a 64-bit process.

You're welcome.

BTW: Unless I hear otherwise from our management, I'm adding your new profile to the list of your old ones we've banned. ;)
