32 bit or 64 bit

Is there any reason to use the 64 bit version over the 32 bit?

It’s’ my understanding that you choose the 32 or 64-bit Scriv according to how your PC is set up. Both my PCs are running Windows 7, but my desktop is setup 32-bit and my laptop is 64-bit, so they each have the matching Scriv.

Is there any reason to use 64 bit on 64 bit computers?

The big advantage of 64-bit is that it can address bigger pieces of memory or disk in one chunk. That might make a performance difference, especially for large projects.

On the Mac, the 64-bit Apple libraries are better maintained and therefore more reliable: Apple has decided the future is 64-bit. I don’t know to what extent that’s true for Windows, but 64-bit is likely to be more future proof.


Thank you for the responses.

I have 32 bit and 64 bit computers. It is most easiest to use the same versions and bits level for all.

I am sure windows will run 32 bit for a long time.

Oh, to imagine I could create a project too big for the lowly 32 bit version of scrivener.
