Windows 7: 32 bit vs 64 bit Comparison

All in all after I experienced ~3 wks of heartache, I now have a very usable 64bit Win7 system.
  • Canon MFD - printer function worked but I had to liaise with Canon support to get the photo & CD print to work on 64 bit OS;
  • NVIDIA driver caused intermittent problems eventually obtained Win7 64 bit version drivers;
  • BitDefender antivirus complained something about 'incorrect OS' error msg;
  • One of my Spanish apps won't work at all in 64 bit;
  • I had to spend money to upgrade a DVD authoring app I extensively use... etc,..,,.,.
....but now all is good..... (except for the dreadful Win 7 explorer)...

I have both 32 and 64 bit versions of a utility. I can't believe 64 bit version runs slower!
How do you explain this?

By "runs slower", do you mean that it starts up, or actually performs over-all slower? It's hard to know unless you let us know what utility it is, and also, your system specs (i.e. are you running a x64 OS with low RAM, etc.), or it could be that you're expecting it to run way faster and it just simply won't so you are thinking that it's slower. Anyways, the more info you provide the better. Or, it might be that it really is slower haha!!

it's doing something with files. maybe my files aren't 64 bit. how can i know if it's because of the startup or actual performance? i run it in the command window. by the way, just realized! how can this app be 64 bit if it's running under DOS?????

The command prompt, and DOS, are very different things. I think the last version of Windows to include DOS was ME.
