In Windows 7, going to Performance Information and Tools, and select print it says: 64 Bit capable: Yes or No

How do I determine if my Windows XP computer is capable of running 64 bit? It is Windows XP Professional, I am on a corporate network.

Thanks

Windows XP?

I have already found both of those links...for Windows 7/Vista. This is the XP, right?

I don't understand your last question. Exactly what is the issue you are having?

I'm sorry, I was able to easily find on Windows 7 if my Windows 7 computer was 64 bit.

My main question here: How do I know if I can run Windows XP 64 bit on my XP machine currently running XP 32 bit?

To see whether a computer running Windows XP is capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, do the following:

  • Click Start.
  • Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

  • If "x64 Edition" is listed under System, your processor is capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows.
  • If you don't see "x64 Edition" listed, your processor still might be capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows. To find out for sure, download and run the free Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor from the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor webpage.
