If you're faced with the option to choose between the 32-bit and 64-bit version of software, which one will you choose to install? There might be some factors to consider but this article wishes to make things simpler for you after reading this.

Well first, check your Operating System. Your 32-bit operating system will be able to run 32-bit programs or softwares, whichever you prefer to call them. But the advantage of running a 64-bit operating system is your capacity to run programs, either its 32-bit or 64-bit version. In the example of Microsoft Office, you must only be running a 64-bit Windows OS if you wish to install the 64-bit version of MS Office 2010 or 2013.



We have published a previous article which explains further a little bit of a background about your computer architecture. For you to be able to find out what software would work in your computer:

1) Click on the ‘Start’ button

2) Right click on Computer

3) Click on Properties

4) Under System, you can check the system type


Now that you know the architecture of your Windows OS, you are faced with the decision of identifying the kind of outputs or projects you want to get done through your software. Microsoft, in the case of Office, has come up with a checklist that would make you decide better in installing the 32-bit or 64-bit version. The way I understand that checklist is – if you’re not really going to deal with large – scale, highly technical and very complicated projects, then go for the 32-bit software. Unless of course you have to keep the consistency among the Office versions installed. What I’m saying is, if you have 64-bit of MS Office 2010 installed in that machine, you cannot install its 32-bit counterpart in the 2013 version – you have to keep the consistency.
