Imeant that can a program be developed so that it can work on 32-bit systems?
We're ramping down 32 bit support. This was a new project, and we decided to only support 64 bit.
As time goes on, it gets harder and harder to support old systems. We end up putting a disproportionate amount of work into providing support for computers which produce a very small contribution. It's not worth the effort.
There's nothing stopping you from installing a 64 bit operating system on either of your computers. They're both 64 bit machines. You don't even have to replace the existing operating system. You can set it up for dual-boot, or it may even be possible to run a 64 bit OS in a VM on your 32 bit systems. Depending on some arcane CPU details, the VM solution is sometimes possible, but not always.
What you do with your systems is up to you. We're providing 64 bit apps. You need to have a 64 bit system if you want to use them.
