Why is my Vista Beta 2 running in 32-bit?

  1. Hi,

    I just bought a new computer and have loaded Vista Beta 2 that I downloaded
    a few months ago now that I have a machine that will optimally run it.

    I've got an nVidia GeForce 7600 card and went to their site to download the
    Vista Beta 2 driver, which I did. Upon running the thing, it told me I had
    to be running Vista in 64-bit and not 32-bit before I could install the
    driver. So I went and checked the System settings in Control Panel and, sure
    enough, it said it was operating at 32-bit.

    What gives? I just bought an AMD Athlon 64 4200+ AM2 X2 processer and Asus
    M2N-SLI Deluxe motherboard!

    Any ideas?

    Which version of the Vista Beta did you download and install? The
    32-bit version, or the 64-bit version?
