I have the option to get one of to versions of a piece of software, but I don't know what the difference is between the two applications. Can someone explain to me what the advantage of getting a (x86) version is or what the advantage of getting a (x86 and x64 WoW) version is?

X86 is for a 32 bit operating system. X86 and X64 will give you both the 32 bit version and the 64 bit version.

So it would probably be better to choose the (x86 and x64 WoW) version since it can be used effectively in both 32-bit and 64-bit environments?

What version of Windows do you have?

At the moment I have Windows Vista Home Premium (64-bit), but I may be updating soon to Windows 7 Professional (64-bit). I was looking at getting Visual Studio 2008 Professional, and it came in the two versions I mentioned earlier. I knew that x86 dealt with 32-bit environments while x64 dealt with 64-bit, but I wasn't sure what WoW was supposed to mean or what advantage there was to getting it. I'll remember in the future then to opt for x64WoW when I can, assuming there's no x64 version.

See, I thought that you were talking about World of Warcraft (I don't know crap about the game so I assumed). I'm not sure what WoW means in regards to Visual Studio.

edit: It appears that there is some kind of WoW add on to Visual Studio.
