#183966 - To be or not to be 32bit or 64bit
Hi to all members:

About 2 years I purchased new computer because my xp laptop did not work any more.For some reason manufacturers want to only sell win7 64bit systems. I got deal on new Dell inspiron 1545 dual core processor. So I figured I just see what the advantages were of 64bit system. I don't really see that many. I though Microsoft compatibility program would take care of my software problems and I was wrong. I have Metalink Assembler that works in dos so figured I will just change the dos so looks like XP or Vista no such luck. Even though I was able to get upgrades for my 89 series programmer for the driver so I use it on my 64bit system no luck for Metalink Assembler. Is their Metalink Assembler work around for 64bit system? Or do I have use different pc just to use it. I like having all my files on one machine for programming. Has any of members to 8052 had similar problems like mine? And has anyone found any advantage to 64bit system? I like all opinions I get on this subject. Thanks in advantage for your idea's. Is their assembler that,s free or good Metalink or cheap but similar to Metalink, I don't want learn new assembler just because of Microsoft pushing 64bit machines to the stores.

Best reguards,

Ralph Sac
