    32 bit File Explorer on Windows 10 x64

    Ok let’s try this again. Sorry for the poorly formed post.

    The problem is this: we use IBM’s I Navigator to transfer files to a local pc by dragging the files from Navigator to the local desktop.
    This works fine with Windows 32 bit OS. Not so with a 64 bit OS.
    The middleware components for data access were written as 64-bit components; however, the majority of the product is still 32-bit. The Access for Windows Navigator is one of those components.
    I’ve tested this on a 32 bit ver of Windows 10 and it works.
    I have to refresh the desktop for the file to display, but it works.
    For a 64 bit os they suggest using the following workaround.

    Another way to circumvent this problem is to use the 32-bit version of Explorer that is installed on the 64-bit Windows systems. This version of Explorer is found in the SysWoW64 subdirectory of the Windows installation directory (%windir%\SysWoW64\Explorer.exe).
    It is important to launch this as a separate process from the Windows desktop. In order to do that, you must specify the '/separate' parameter to Explorer. You can create a shortcut to launch the 32-bit Explorer by doing the following (Note:
    The following steps have not been shown to work on all versions of Windows.):

    1. Right-click on your Windows desktop, selecting New and Shortcut.

    2. Specify %windir%\SysWoW64\explorer.exe /separate as the location for the target. You might want to add an initial directory for it to open as well. In this example case, w want to use it to copy files to my Windows desktop so the following
    is used as the location for the shortcut:

    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\explorer.exe /separate, c:\users\username\desktop

    There can be some confusion about whether or not an application is running is a 32-bit or 64-bit application. The Windows task manager can be used to identify 32-bit applications though. If you have the Navigator and the 32-bit Windows Explorer
    running on a 64-bit version of Windows and open the task manager (press Ctrl+Shift+Esc), you will notice that the 32-bit applications have '*32" after the Image Name. For example, a list of currently active processes, may show the following:

    cwbunnav.exe *32





    explorer.exe *32


    javaw.exe *32

    This means that I have both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Explorer running. The Process Explorer tool from Microsoft is another alternative tool that can show you whether the processes in Windows are 32-bit or 64-bit programs.

    However, this doesn’t work for Windows 10 x64. Is there another switch or command I need to use to run explorer in 32 bit mode?

  3. How do I install IE 32 bit and/or switch from 64 bit to 32 bit?

    Windows 10: Internet Explorer

    • You need to have Windows 10 64-bit(x64) to use this feature
    • To check:
      • Click on Windows Key
      • Click on Settings
      • Click on System
      • On left panel click on About
      • On right panel check system type:
        • System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
          • That means you have Windows 10 64-bit
        • System Type: 32-bit operating system, x86-based processor
          • That means you have Windows 10 32-bit
    • Internet Explorer
      • 32-bit(x86):
        • C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
      • 64-bit(x64):
        • C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
    • You cannot switch between Windows 10 32-bit to 64-bit. you need to re-install Windows 10 64 bit.
    • To download Windows 10 64-bit:
      Microsoft - "Windows 10 - Download tool now"

    • If you have Windows 10 64-bit, you can run any application which supports 64-bit and as well as 32-bit

  4. What is this (Powerd off)(32 bit) in my file explorer

    How do I find the 32 bit Internet explorer?

    Hello Lady,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, i understand that you want to use the 32 bit version of Internet Explorer.

    Please be informed that you will find ‘Program File’ folders that are listed for 32 bit and 64 bit version of Windows under C: drive. The folder with (x86) is for 32 bit version of programs/applications.

    One of the better uses for having two seperate folders is that you can have both 32 and 64 bit versions of the same application installed at the same time. And, it is here, that you will find the Internet Explorer for 32 bit version to use.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.
