32 bit or 64 bit

Thanks Mark,



Can you do a spec sheet on the install and park it in Group files under a
"How To" header?



Thanks,



Robert Carlson

I have a Lenovo T510 with 8GB RAM running Windows 7 64bit. I run
VMWare Workstation running Windows 2008 Standard Server 64 bit. Epicor
9 in all of its 64 bit Open Edge glory runs in the virtual machine.
I'm installing 32 bit Open Edge in Windows 7 to run the
Admin/Conversion programs, which is the only part that doesn't run in
64 bit. Well, that and the ODBC drivers...

Without a 64 bit OS, it's difficult to get enough RAM available to run
Epicor 9.

I am wanting to purchase a new laptop to run Epicor 9. I am wanting to install the Demo Image as well. Epicor is sugesting a Lenovo, but I can get a Dell for less money and more features. I have an opinion about the Lenovo from my Epicor days. I understand I could have some difficulty accessing the AppServer with 64 bit. Just curious what this group thought about 32 bit vs. 64 bit?

Thank you,

Stephen
I have a dell precision m90 32 bit (xp pro) and run v8, v9 and v9.5 on
it with no problems.

My co-worker just got a new dell 64 bit laptop with same.

64 bit what? Any processor you buy (except some of the low end Intel
Atoms) has the x86-64 instruction set. I'd get the 64 bit version of
Windoze for performance, and if things have problems run 'em in virtual
PC / VM ware / WinXP mode.

There is no point with a 64 bit machine..you will need to install OE in 32
bit in order to run E9. Currently Open Edge does not support 64 bit with
E9.



The entire Op sys will need to be 32 bit unless you find a way to have a 32
bit environment running concurrently with a 64 bit environment so that you
can run OE in 32 bit and E9 in 64 bit.
