32bit - 64bit, program transfers? Tags: Security Windows Vista Last response: November 16, 2008 5:28 PM in Windows Vista Share jessegibson November 16, 2008 3:54:23 PM I just completed my first PC Build. I am using Vista64. I am trying to install a Security program that was on my XP Machine. After transferring all the files to my new Vista machine I unzipped the 3 files using WinRar. When I started to begin the install I recieved this error message... Symantec AntiVirus Client Installer Information The win32 version of the installer can't install Symantec Client Security on a 64 bit OS. Does anyone know a work around? Or am I screwed? I will also post this in the Software/Security Forum More about : 32bit 64bit program transfers notherdude November 16, 2008 4:16:30 PM Sounds like you need a 64 bit version of Symatec. Some 32 bit security software will not run on 64. I don't think the current version cares but an older version might. Either that or you could try running the installer 'as administrator' but I doybt it. jessegibson November 16, 2008 4:26:23 PM I ran it as Admin, didn't do anything. If I need the 64 bit version I am guessing I have to purchase that. It isn't as simple as a free upgrade or anything like that? Can't find your answer ? Ask !

It isn't as simple as a free upgrade or anything like that? I have no idea about upgrading. If you don't want to spend $ you could try either Avast or AVG, both have free 64 bit versions IIRC.
