    If you have to ask, you are running 32 bit.

  5. If you don't know you're probably running 32-bit. If you right-click on
    "My Computer" and choose "Properties", it will tell you.

    Mine doesn't. It just says ...
    "Microsoft Windows XP
    Home Edition
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 1"

  8. Then it's 32-bit. The 64-bit edition is only available through MSDN and
    via OEM suppliers. There's no "Home Edition" - it's for high-end use

    Since they don't make a 64 bit Home have a 32 bit OS...

    why? Guest

    Please don't put the question in the subject line.

    Start / Run / Winver click OK might tell you.

    What version did you/ is install(ed)? Open Windows Explorer / Help

    Did you get a system with an Intel Itanium processor, in the USD $2500+

    Maybe minimum of 1GB RAM.

    Download and install one of the 64bit patches, hopefully MS will have
    remembered it should check the right version :)

    Paid something like (roughly) USD $250 or a lot more?

    Thanks for asking the question. I've wondered, too, if my machine was 32 or
    64 bit. Now I know.

    Well, two ways.

    One is, if you right-click on "My Computer", it will say it's XP 64

    Second, if you paid about 10,000 USD or more for your HP Itanium
    Workstation ...

    But if you have to ask, it's most likely 32bit.

    32-bit versions have 2 folders under "Windows" folder to seperate 16-bit and 32-bit code which are named "System" and "System32".
    64-bit versions have 2 folders under "Windows" folder to seperate 32-bit and 64-bit code which are named "SysWOW64" and "System32".

    I quite agree

    What a bunch of dickheads. There are several reasons someone may not know what system they're running. It might not even be their computer. I'm running XP on a Mac via Bootcamp (AND it's not even my computer!) and the system could certainly handle 64 bit but I'm just not sure if it's installed or not. Now I have my answer, and enough insults to keep me going for the rest of the day...
