Programs installed in E:\\Program Files run as x32
Hello there, everybody!
Half a year ago my laptop's hard disk's clusters began to fail, so I finally had to change it with a Western Digital Scorpio Black 750 GB - 7200rpm (WD7500BPKT).
When reinstalling Windows 7 Home Premium x64, I decided to dedicate the C:\\ unit to the OS "only", and E:\\ to programs and files of all sorts.
I've then installed all of my programs by sending them to their respective folders, E:\\Program Files\ and E:\\Program Files (x86)\ .
But I'm now noticing all of them are running in x32 mode!
The only programs running in x64 are those forcedly installed into the C:\\Program Files\ folder (which my Italian OS calls C:\\Programmi\, although program installers install into C:\\Program Files\).
Is it that Windows isn't recognizing any Program Files folders but the default ones in C:\\?
Any clarifications, suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance!

A program does not run in 32 bit or 64 bit depending on where it is installed. It does not matter where you install it. A 64 bit program will run as 64 bit and a 32 bit program will run as 32 bit. I can only assume your software is 32 bit...or it is running as 64 bit. The limited information you have given is not enough.
