Well, I'm wonderin if there are any issues with any of today's latest games on the 64-bit edition? I'm just wondering, because the best graphics cards can only run in the 64-bit edition due the PCI-Express being on 98-100% (probably 100%) of "AMD 64-bit CPU Only" motherboards. It would be a bit of a pain in the ass if the best graphics cards couldn't even play all the games and such.
What about applications. I know 64-bit windows xp supports 32-bit apps as well, but there's got to be some issues.
Drivers for one thing, I have some hardware that will probably fail to run due to the lack of a 64-bit driver...but I'll just run em on the ol althon 'ere.
Microsoft made a list here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282423 ,but I bet theres more.
No 16-bit apps will work...no problem,
64-bit producing 32-bit MDACs...not sure
64-bit Microsoft Internet Explorer cannot load 32-bit ActiveX controls... Heh, that'll prevent all the ol spyware from installin, but the old pages wont work. Eh, good ones will always update their ActiveX controls, such as Flash and such.
32-bit installer programs cannot load and register 64-bit DLLs...and why would they?
