Windows 7: Can't run 64-bit dxdiag, Help!

Can't run 64-bit dxdiag, Help!

Hello, i'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right thread but i'm running a 64-bit operating system, with 2.00gb of ram and an AMD v140 processor(2.30ghz) I'm trying to get more FPS to make swtor playable. I have direct x11 installed, when i run dxdiag it says 32-bit unit code. When i select 'Run 64-bit DxDiag' it switches to 84-bit unitcode, but when i close from the diagnostic tool and re-open it, it says i'm running in 32 bit again. Anyone know what my problem here is? Please help.

Windows 8 Core X64

Running dxdiag in 64bit mode doesn't change anything in Windows 7. It just changes the mode dxdiag is runnig in. It still runs the same program, C:\Windows\System32\dxdiag.exe.

If you want to improve performance, add another 2GB or ram or upgrade your video card.

You can add a shortcut on your Desktop to run dxdiag in x64 mode by adding a /64bit parameter. There are other command line parameters as well.
