Considerations for 64-bit drivers and software

Device drivers that are 32-bit do not work on computers running 64-bit versions of the Windows operating systems. If you are attempting to install hardware that only has 32-bit drivers available, that hardware will not work correctly on 64-bit versions of Windows. Additionally, applications that attempt to install 32-bit device drivers on 64-bit versions of Windows will encounter errors.

For information about updating drivers and troubleshooting issues with device drivers for 64-bit versions of Windows, contact the manufacturer of the hardware or software.
