    Hello all, I was forced to do a fresh install of windows 10 since I changed my SSD. I used the media creation tool to get win10 version 22H2 that is running 64 bit. Nothing else in my hardware or bios configuration was changed whatsoever. Just popped out old ssd and installed windows with a bootable USB.Several apps seem to have "detected" that my system is 32 bits and are running in that mode. Note that programs with a different executable for 64 bit are indeed running 64 bit. The problem are apps that have one installer and "detect" the system architecture wrong. Games specially have troub

    Windows 10 64-bit but almost every program is running 32-bit

    32-bit programs will run in 32-bit mode whether or not the OS is 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Very few programs are 64-bit. And, 64-bit programs will run in 64-bit mode on a 64-bit OS.

    Hi Gary,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    As you have a query on why the programs run in 32 bit when you have a 64 bit of Windows 10 installed. We need to install 64 bit application to run those in 64 bit processing set. If you install 32 bit applications it will run on 32 bit mode even if
    you have a 64 bit Operating system installed.

    Let us know if you have installed any 64 bit program and it doesn't show in c:\Program Files folder.

    Try installing 64 bit applications and let us know if it runs in 32 bit mode.

    Hope I have answered your query, if not please let us know to assist you better.

    32 bit program running on 64 bit computer

    Hi,

    There should be no problem running a 32 bit program on a 64 bit machine...

    You may need to right click on the programs installer or Application\.exe file and set it's compatibility mode... Just select properties and you will see it.

    One potential problem... Windows 8 and higher x64 will not run a 16 bit program...

    So even though your Adobe Type Twister runs on 32 bit machines, it may be a 16 bit program that is now basically useless on the newer 64 bit OS's...

    I know nothing about this program, and have not been able to find much about it, but my guess based on it's age is that it is 16 bit...
