    The Internet Explorer shortcut in the Quick
    Launch toolbar and in the Start menu of Vista x64 will run the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer by default. Why run the 32-bit version if IE on
    the 64-bit version of Vista?

    There are actually two shortcuts for Internet Explorer in the "All Programs" menu. Why two and what's the
    difference?

    Here's the title of each and the exe's they run:

    Internet Explorer
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet
    Explorer\iexplore.exe"

    Internet Explorer (64-bit)
    "C:\Program
    Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

    The first one runs IE from the "Program Files (x86)" folder, this is the
    32-bit version. The second one is the 64-bit version.

    How do I make the Quick Launch shortcut
    run the 64-bit version of
    IE?



    1. Right-Click the Shortcut

    2. Click "Properties"

    3. On the Shortcut tab, replace the content of the "Target" textbox with the
      target from the "Internet Explorer (64-bit)" shortcut
      in the "All Programs" menu.

    4. Happy surfing via IE 64-bit

    Are there any gotchas to running the
    64-bit version of IE?


    Actually there is one that I know of. At the time I'm posting this there is
    no 64-bit version of Flash Player. So, if you need
    to view a website that uses Flash, then you'll need to use
    the 32-bit version IE; at least for now. I'm sure
    Adobe will release a 64-bit version of Flash Player by the end of
    January when Vista ships to consumers. But then again, maybe not since Vista x64 runs 32-bit IE by
    default.

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

pcjanitor.jpg
If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.


Error: x64.exe not a valid Win32 application This article applies to:
  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003
  • Browser(s): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla 1.4+
  • Java version(s): 6.0
SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.
SOLUTION

User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.

Follow these steps to download 32-bit Java
  1. Go to Manual download
  2. Click Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Online.
  3. The File Download dialog box appears.
  4. Choose the folder location.
  5. (Save the file to a known location on your computer, for example, to your desktop).
  6. Click Save.
  7. Close all applications including the browser.
  8. Double-click on the saved file icon to start the installation process.

Where can I take my computer to get Flash player installed for Windows 7 ? I have tried and had a computer man try and I still cannot see videos.


I don't think you need to take it anywhere as the problem is due to Adobe not releasing a 64-bit version of Flash so in the mean time you'll have to use the 32-bit version of Flash with the 32-bit version Internet Explorer that comes pre-loaded with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. Adobe has said that a Flash plugin for 64-bit browsers will be available in the next major version after 10.1 (presumably 11). Hope that makes sense but shout if you need further clarification.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and

32 bit IE won't connect to internet in Vista 64 bit.


32 bit programs, last I checked, won't work in a 64 bit operating system, just as 64 bit won't work in 32 bit operating systems.

If 32 bit programs will work in a 64 bit OS, they probably won't work properly.

IE 32-bit browser need to run on my 64-bit browser


Hi buddy323,

You will find the 32 bit browser on your Vista installation disk. Or your restore CD from Dell.

If you can't find it there, you can download it HERE. Or may want to go for the IE version 8.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

How do i run a 32 bit browser on a 64 bit system? windows vista home premium.


There is no special procedure for running the browser (or any other 32 bit program). If you're having a problem with a particular browser, which one and what is the trouble?

Do you have the 64 bit Vista, or just a 64 bit processor? The former is relatively uncommon, the latter is the norm these days.

Adobe Flash Player download problem


Hi,
What Browser are you using, incidentally?
If you're trying to download the latest Flash Player, then maybe the link is detecting your browser... If you are using a 64-bit browser (I have no experience of these, I just think this might be worth a try) then maybe you should try installing Firefox and installing the Adobe Flash Player with that, to make sure you don't get 're-directed' to the 64-bit-message.
Try this link instead:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

Hope this helps

Adobe flash player quit working


This problem is most likely related to a Windows Vista permissions issue. Because Vista has security features to prevent scumbag spammers and spyware from infesting your computer, programs will not automatically install themselves. I have had success by logging into Vista as an administrator, then installing whatever programs I wanted, then logging back in under my normal usage account. Sometimes simply being in the administrator account is not enough, but I hope this gets you in the right direction.
