32-bit vs. 64-bit Compatibility Questions

This page answers some of the questions about the 32-bit and 64-bit OS questions.

  • What versions and type of Windows operating systems do you support?

    We support Microsoft Windows XP Professional (32-bit, but not 64-bit) and Windows 7 Professional (32 and 64-bit). While we do not offer technical support on installing our product on Apple Mac OS, many of our customers have successfully installed and operated the workstation using VMWare Fusion with Windows 7 Professional. The software installer will not allow installation of the product to any unsupported version of the OS.

  • Do you need different installer for your product?

    No, a single installer will install the correct compatible version of the Imorgon Workstation product.

  • Do I have to do anything differently depending on which OS I am using?

    No, you will install the software exactly in the same way and also operate in the same way.

  • With a 64-bit system what are the advantages?

    The 64-bit system provides significantly more memory space for the application to work with. Under the 32-bit system, the actual working memory which the Imorgon workstation can practically utilize is about 1 GB in the best scenario, but under the 64-bit system, it can more than double the amount it can utilize, still leaving plenty of room for your other applications to run. In the future, the workstation product will utilize practically any amount of specified memory coming very close to the maximum memory permitted on the OS. We highly recommend that you install at least 8 GB of RAM on your workstation.
