Hello there.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, or if I'm just mistaken, but here it goes: I have 64-bit Windows 7 and downloaded the 64-bit DipTrace installer (v2.2). Programs runs normally, but I noticed in the Task Manager that the appplications run as 32-bit ones. Is it normal? What is the difference between x86 and x64 builds of DipTrace?

Thank you!

Program itself is 32-bit application. But we create 64-bit installer for 64-bit systems because destination folders for DipTrace files are different for 64-bit systems.

Querying for the Program Files directory programatically should return the proper folder based on whether the running app is 64-bit or 32-bit, FYI.

Technically x86 simply refers to a family of processors and the instruction set they all use. It doesn't actually say anything specific about data sizes. The term x86 started out as a 16-bit instruction set for 16-bit processors (the 8086 and 8088 processors), then was extended to a 32-bit instruction set for 32-bit processors (80386 and 80486), and now has been extended to a 64-bit instruction set for 64-bit processors. It used to be written as 80x86 to reflect the changing value in the middle of the chip model numbers, but somewhere along the line the 80 in the front was dropped, leaving just x86.

True 64-bit version of DipTrace is available starting from version 3.0.0.2.
