How To Check If Computer Can Support 64bit System

Note : if your system is 32bit (x86) you cannot install some software that use 64bit (x64) architectures.
Solution : format your PC into 64bit system OR use virtualization if supported.

This software is for checking system information purpose. Not harmful and portable.
1. Download software :-
Link 1 : [MEGA]
Link 2 : [Dropbox]
Link 3 : [Google Drive]

2. Unzip and run any software in the folder. (Run as administrator if problem occur)

3. There's 2 software, same function just different extra information.

From here (see image) you will notice your computer can support 64bit system. But make sure if you want to format your 32bit into 64bit you must have atleast 4GB RAM for better performance.

(In the image, the OS is ALREADY 64bit system)

From here (see image) you will notice your computer can support 64bit system and also virtualization hardware system.

(OS architecture mean your current OS system, in the image is 32bit).

Easy things to know...
  • 32bit can support up to 4GB RAM (if more than 4GB, the system will not detect the rest)
  • 64bit can support more than 4GB RAM (depend on motherboard slot and hardware support)
  • 32bit in C:\ (only has 1 program files) while 64bit in C:\ (has 2 program files).
  • 64bit system still can install most of 32bit programs while 32bit can't install 64bit programs.
