  • Needs a hotfix bad

    I am trying to apply for a hotfix from Microsoft, but they need to know my "platform". A dropdown list displays a choice of "X86, X64, ia64". Now, being rather computer illiterate, I have no idea what they want, and neither does my boss (so I don,t feel so bad about that). Any help out there???

      x86 = 32-bit generic term. Most older commercial microprocessors
      x64 = 64-bit AMD microprocessors
      ia64 = 64-bit Intel microprocessors (Intel Itanium architecture)

      If your running an older system (3-4+ yrs) probably gonna be x86. I dont remember but i think if you right click on MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES under the GENERAL tab where it says COMPUTER: it should say something like "Pentium 4" "AMD 64" etc. Been more then a few years since i worked on windows system... not liking it!

        Goto your START -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools

        There is a program called "System Information". Run that and you will see what you have.
