download for a x64-based PC . every time i try to update it tells me i need either a (x86)bit or (64)bit . my system is 64


The computer hardware may be 64 bit but is the Operating system you have loaded 64 Bit or 32 BIT?. If you have a 32 Bit operating system loaded this would explain your problem.

Beginning with the release of Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit operating systems are slowly becoming extremely prevalent in today's market. 64-bit operating systems are poised to eventually replace 32-bit operating systems entirely. At the present however, 32-bit applications still vastly outnumber 64-bit applications. Luckily, 64-bit operating systems are capable of running 32-bit operating systems. In 64-bit operating systems, 32-bit applications are installed to a second program files folder, named "Program Files (x86)." Programs installed in the x86 folder can be initialized just like programs installed in the regular Program Files folder.

Open the 32-bit programs folder. Go to Start > Computer > Local Disk (C:), then click on "Program Files (x86)." Open the desired program folder. The executable file for the program will be located inside the folder. Double-click on the file with the ".exe" file extension. As an example, for the QuickTime program you would double-click on the "QuickTimePlayer.exe" file. You have now successfully run a 32-bit application in your 64-bit operating system. Hope this helps.

how to install vista 64 bit over 32 bit i installed my 32bit version i didn`t relize that it only supports 4gb minus my video card=3gigs total memory, so do i have to reinstall my 64bit as a fresh install all over again??


Yes. But Vista is full of problems. I suggest you use XP instead. Some computer manufacturers now offer XP for a small surcharge because they recognize that Vista is a lousy Operating system.
