Probable Stupid Question: Using 64-bit Code on 64-bit Processors running 32-bit Windows...

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to do 64-bit processing (probably by 
writing some assembly language code) when running on a 64-bit CPU under 
32-bit Windows?

As near as I can tell, one has to develop all 64-bit code on a 64-bit 
machine running 64-bit windows and the target machines for 64-bit code have 
to be 64-bit machines running 64-bit windows.

What might be useful, if it is possible, would be being able to detect a 
64-bit processor when running 32-bit windows and take advantage of that to 
speed up some calculations.

Disadvantage in running an ASP.NET 32-bit application on a 64-bit Windows server in 32-bit mode?
 Hello,My ASP.NET application has some 32-bit DLLs I can't change.  I've deployed the application to a 64-bit Windows 2003 server and I can get it to run if I enable 32-bit ASP.NET support.My question:  is this configuration worth it?  Or would I be better off just running it on a Windows 32-bit Server?  Even more specifically, can a 32-bit application running on 64-bit Windows take advantage of the extra RAM the machine might have?Thanks!Mike There's really no disadvantage in running 32 bit application pool on a 64 bits system.With 64 bits OS, the OS ...

Upgrading from ASE (32-bit) 12.0.0.7 on Solaris 2.8 64-bit to ASE(64-bit) 12.5.1 on Solaris 64-bit
Hello all, We are planning to upgrade our ASE servers from a 32-bit ASE 12.0.0.7 to 64-bit ASE 12.5.1 on Solaris 8. Could you please give what are the steps to be taken care and how do I start with ( Do I have to first upgrade to 32-bit12.5.1 and then upgrade to 64-bit ASE 12.5.1, or directly upgrade from 32-bit 12.0.0.7 to 64-bit 12.5.1 ?). Could you also please point to some documentation (about upgrading 32-bit 12.0.0.7 to 64-bit 12.5.1). Thanks RK ...

32-bit clent or 64-bit client on 64-bit O/S
We currently have a 32-bit client running on AIX 4.3.3 32-bit. We're moving that client to an AIX 5.x 64-bit system. Is there any advantage to switching to the 64-bit Sybase client? I'm not sure if it matters but the ASE Server that the client uses is 12.5 64-bit running on a 64-bit O/S.

How to tell that my 32 bit code is running on a 64 bit OS?
I have various procedures to detect OS name, version, IE version, various DLL versions etc. Recently I have run it on 64bit Vista Ultimate, and based on the information I received, I would have never guessed that the OS was 64bit. IE was reported as 32 bit, The same with WinInet, Comctrl, etc. Even the system folder was reported as C:\Windows\system32. As I said, the "64bit" phrase was nowhere to be found. I understand that 32 bit code will use 32bit environment, but how can I tell that the OS version was 64 bit? Any ideas? Captain Mockba wrote: > how can I tell that...

64 bit or 32 bit
In OUR setup: I have 32 HP BL465c blades. All identical. All have (4) 1 GB modules in them. Dual-Core Xeon 3.0 GhZ. All currently run NetWare 6.5.6 The question I have is, when we upgrade/migrate to OES 2 Linux, should I go 64-bit or 32-bit? Software that we CURRENTLY run: 1) GroupWise 7.0.3 2) McAfee NetShield (will replace with LinuxShield which does support 64-bit on SLES 10 and OES 2 according to the website) 3) iPrint 4) eDirectory 8.8 5) IDM 3.5.0 (probably upgrade to 3.5.1 shortly) 6) ZfD 7 SP1 IR1 HP2 7) Apache2, NetStorage, NRM, and iMangler 8) Net...
