    I need a simple thing answered: Do one needs to upgrade their device for 64 bit? Or buy a new device? I tried downloading Game Maker 2's trial... and they told me I needed it.
    (PLEASE help/explain in laymen's terms IF I can simply upgrade: Will it cost money, and what do I need to do?)

    So, I'm guessing this is for your computer, so what operating system do you have? Is it the operating system that you need to be 64 bit? Do you have a 32 bit or 64 bit processor?

    [​IMG] This should guide you on how to find out your processor in windows.

    If you do have a 32 bit system then yes, you do need a 64 bit system since it limits a LOT of your computer. You can't use all the RAM you have in your PC, most programs wont work and your computer just wont work to it's fullest.

    Oh tablet? Oh that's different. What tablet do you have exactly, since they can be really hard to get to being x64 if they're not already since the processor in them are usually x86 if they've got a x86 system.

    From what I'm reading no...

    It's a e-Matic Intel Atom Quad processor... I would give more detail, but I don't know where the box or instructions are anymore... The system page and name shows that along with the 32 bit thing and x64 bit processor(?)

    What does that mean? I thought it could only "handle" 32 bits? But it also says 64? Why couldn't it download?

    That's kinda confusing. Are you able to take a screenshot or something of the system page?

    I couldn't take a screenshot, but... Honey, I've shrunken the windows! Hahahaha! (Sorry for the reference, I simply resized the pages side by side)

    System
    Manufacturer:Ematic
    Model:EWT932
    Processor: Intel(R) Atom(R) CPU Z3735G @ 1.33GHz 1.33 GHz
    System Type:32-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

    I typed all the necessary looking information on the System page! :D (The rest was computer name and the Pen and Touch thing...)

    How do I find it? I don't see (or know what it means) where to look for it...
