Question: Are the 5.2 versions of Notepad, Wordpad and Paint running on
64bit code or 32bit?

I think so, and I think Outlook Express is probably the only component of XP
Pro x64 that is not 64 bit native. Correct me if I'm wrong.

All of them are 64bit. Start the programs, open the task manager and check
the name. If you find a 32 after the name, it means that it is a 32bit soft,
otherwise, it's 64 bit

Hello,
Another way to test would be to capture filever from the support.cab from
the cd.
Running filever *.* lists the files with the headers which will show what
platform all the files are.
Thanks,

They are in the 64-bit directory, yet I suspect some code portions have not
been fully ported so 64-bit. It's mostly a question of what your application
entails.
For instance find.exe was initially unable to deal with a file over 4GB in
size, but that was fixed at RTM, so it was a dead giveaway about the
porting...
Because of speed considerations, I was more at ease using vedit pro64
(vedit.com) to handle a 200GB file than Notepad, but I still wish edit.com
had been ported !

Hello Andre,
Do you mean Internet Explorer which defaults to 32-bit?
Outlook Express defaults to 64-bit and most entry points are 64-bit, it's
hard to get any portion of 32-bit OE running.
Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

Applications that are 32 bit in XP Pro x64 can be recognized by an asterisk
beside their process name:
example - java.exe *32 or iTunes.exe *32

Because the spell checking functionality is from Office, it is only
32-bit, which is why 64-Bit OE doesn't work with spell checking.

If you are doing basic e-mails, then OE is the way to go, if you want
advanced calendaring and contact management plus e-mail, then Outlook is
definitely the right choice.
