Games on Vista 64-bit

Posted: 01-24-2009, 04:38 PM
Hi... When downloading games, how can I tell if they're compatible with Vista
64-bit that I have on my new laptop? If I buy a new game and the box says
it's compatible with Vista, does that also mean it's OK with the 64-bit
version?
Thank you.

Maybe yes, maybe no.

Ask the people that make the game. Vista x64 also runs 32-bit applications,
but it does not run 16-bit applications, so if the game is 32-bit, you
should be fine. Most applications are 32-bit, older games (like more than 6
years old) used to be 32-bit, but had 16-bit installers, so that sucked.

Now a days any "new" game you buy or download, should work in Vista x64. If
you're not sure, post the name of the game, or ask the people who make the
game, "Have you tested this game on 64-bit operating systems?"

If it says the game works with Vista, I'd be very surprised if it
doesn't work with the 64 bit version. I've not found a recent game
that doesn't work on it.

If you're in doubt, do a quick google and it should come up (or post
the game name here).
