32-bit 64-bit

I have two operating systems, XP32bit and XP64bit and two computers, a capable 32 and a 64-bit capable. My problem is: I've loaded and saved the OS 32-bit on your 64-bit computer. The 32-bit machine does not allow me to load the 64 bit OS. Ms will allow me to reload the OS 64-bit on your 64-bit computer and reload the OS 32 bits on 32-bit macnine?

As long as the two are not OEM version and one version is a computer (cannot not have 32 and 64 bits on the same PC with a product that is used on the other computer key).


Never be afraid to ask. This forum has some of the best people in the world to help.

  • Safari in 32-bit mode in El Capitan


    For school, my children need access to the Web site that runs 'Shockwave '. They are not currently open.

    Navigation online suggestions say run it in 32-bit mode, with instructions on how to do it.

    However, when I access the app Safari (version 10), and "Get Info", the check box option is not there to run in 32-bit.

    Does this mean that I can't go back now?

    Thank you.


    With Safari 10, you cannot return to running in 32-bit mode, if that's what you're asking.

  • Can I boot in 32-bit mode?

    MacBook Pro 17 "(8,3) i7 2.2 GHz Quad Core 16 GB DDR3 750 GB HD OS X Mavericks 10.9.5"

    I am trying to connect to a USB 1.1 device which has incompatible firmware with 64-bit OS X.  The camera manufacturer's instructions for a workaround that allows access to the device to update the firmware, providing support OS X 64-bit.  Of workaround requires me to start in 32-bit mode by pressing the '3' key and '2' during the start cycle.  They show how to check and see if your Mac is in 32-bit mode, but their example does not match my window, and my machine doesn't seem to be in 32-bit mode.   I found several references to this '3' start + "2" keyboard shortcut, but nothing official from Apple.

    Please do not recommend upgrading the OS.  The software I'm using is not supported by the manufacturer past Mavericks.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    If the software is compatible with the Mavericks like you state that the developer shows you should be able to use the device in 32 or 64 bit.

    When using any modification of the startup of the suggestion of anyone on the internet always proceed with caution, and damages are exclusively your own:

    Method 1: Start key combination
    This will bypass the default mode and use a different mode for single session.

    • If your Mac uses the 32-bit mode by default, press 6 and 4 at startup
    • If your Mac uses 64-bit by default, press 3 and 2 at startup

    Note: Your Mac will return to the default mode the next time it starts. Method 2: Setting disk
    This will change the default mode used by your Mac when starting. For 32-bit mode, use the following command in a Terminal:

    • sudo setkernelbootarchitecture systemsetup - i386

    For the 64-bit mode, use the following command in a Terminal:

    • sudo systemsetup setkernelbootarchitecture - x86_64

  • WebEx does not support Firefox 64; is there an alternative to return to Firefox 41, 32-bit?

    I spend at each opening of webex session you transfer files to temporary webex because Firefox 64 is not supported. I don't understand why Mozilla and Webex need to make things difficult for customers not to overcome differences. Should I go back use of considerably older Firefox which is always in 32-bit code? Can I load both Firefoxe versions on the same machine or they will conflict?

    Should I go back use of considerably older Firefox which is always in 32-bit code?

    The current version of Firefox 42.0 (Win32/Win64) is not older. Firefox 45.0a1 nightly compilations you are testing is in development and not even close release. Release of < beta < Aurora (developers edition) < every night

    If you wanted to Win64 Firefox there is a release of 42.0 Win64 Firefox it is, however, not so public on mozilla.org

    The Win64 Firefox 42.0 has 64-bit Flash Player white listed. The next exit Win64 Firefox 43.0 looks like 64-bit plugin Silverlight will be white listed.

  • Lose or damage received the content of the e-mail, can see the fault once then apparent on refresh. worm 38.4 on 64-bit Windows8.1 / thank you

    Thunderbird worm 38.4/8.1 windows 64 bit
    Emails in the Inbox display content on the first reception. During subsequent attempts to display the message content can be completely empty or the contents of another adjacent email in the list. This seems to have started at the time that Norton detected and quarantined a couple of emails with identified the virus attached.
    After you run the full system antivirus scan I backed the content of the 789abc987.default of profile to backup taken yesterday. Now new emails coming to see the same problem, so that up to this older email display correctly.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem wise to disable antivirus because in business, even if you wait for an attachment and you know the source, the technical capabilities of the source is not always known.

    I suggest to disable antivirus. Indeed, it would be a bad choice.
    The point is not to analyze the attachments so that they are still part of the e-mail message.

    Some form of holding directory which allow scanning prior to arrival in the mail app would be nice

    I don't know what you want to achieve by doing this. Yet once, any malware eventually joined an e-mail won't hurt as long as you do not deliberately open or run the attachment.

    Save an attachment to disk and then let it scan by anti-virus would be a good strategy.

  • Can W7 \64 bit\FF42.0\How I move the profiles?

    Everything seems to work perfectly. But I realized that I should be able to find how to move my profile to another drive on my computer somewhere in the profile itself. I've looked everywhere I can think of and can't find this info. If you can tell me where it is, maybe I can manage. But if not, can you tell me how to move the profiles? My os is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I am running Firefox 42.0. Your guesses are all correct, except that I'm not sure about the plugin from Adobe. Thanks for any help.

    You can use the Profile Manager to create a new profile on a different hard drive folder by clicking on the button "choose a folder.
    Be sure to select a new empty file and not a folder that already contains files.

    You can transfer files from the current profile folder to this folder.
