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 10 Pro 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.
