Windows 7 [ 6956 32bit -> 7000beta 64bit ]

Hello guys,

I have installed the 32bit 6956 build some time ago last year, I'm really enjoying it!

But now that the beta is available and also 64bit, I was wondering if I can "upgrade" my build to the newer one in 64bit somehow!

Would be great to know!

James

Hi bigmamamonk....


sorry... there is no way to upgrade x32 to x64, it would need to be a fresh install

you could upgrade your current 6956 to 7000 but only in x32

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
