Windows 7: 64 bit Control Panel

64 bit Control Panel

Hi all,

I was wondering why my control panel only shows some programs (ODBC and mail for example) as 32 bit only. I have a 64 bit OS and a 64 bit processor, so why isnt it showing the 64 bit versions of these programs?

Regards
Bidski

Bidski, not showing anything but the 32 bit entries? Or everything including the 32 bit entries? If it is the second that is how it should be as the 64 bit entries will not show as such, they will just be listed by their name.

It only shows the 32 bit ones (except for java). Attached a screenshot.

That's normal. Many apps do not have a 64bit version. Mine is the same.

you are right, many apps do not have a 64 bit version, but I know that ODBC does. I know the file is on my system (C:\Windows\SysWOW64 or something like that). I just want to know why that along with any others arent showing up in control panel.

Here is my own control panel:

It is also likely that ODBC is only installed as 32-bit. You mention that you can see the files for it in "C:\Windows\SysWOW64". Are they also in "C:\Windows\System32" and/or "C:\Windows\System"?

On my machine, the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" almost echos the contents of "C:\Windows\System"

To be clear "SysWOW64" stand for "System Windows on Windows 64", and is used for compatibility of 32-bit program running on 64-bit Windows.
