    Is it possible to install x86 updates on an x64 version of Windows Vista?

    I ask because I tried using Office Live Workspace today and it installed
    three hotfixes during its installation. These hotfixes did not specify that
    they were for x64 systems in their title, so it made me nervous.

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks,

    John

    John:
    Office is an application which is 32-bit which is compatible with Vista
    x64 (operating system). Have a great day.

    Yes, I understand that.

    I'm talking about windows updates. Office Live Workspace has you install
    three windows updates in this self-extracting package. I just want to make
    sure it didn't install updates for Vista x86 onto my Vista x64 system.

    John:
    Office updates are installed through Windows Updates along with some
    optional driver updates.

  5. No, it shouldn't do that. There is code inside the system that can be
    checked for the proper version, you can expect trouble if you try and update
    from another machine, though! It will not read minds!
