64-bit Transitioning Support for Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Servers
Windows 7 is available in a 64-bit version that represents a new benchmark for desktop dependability and capacity. However, for the majority of organizations the transition to 64-bit technology is problematic because of the need to make a clean setup on every desktop. This involves re-installing applications, saving and recovering data files, and running 64-bit device drivers. Although businesses in most cases already have 64-bit hardware, the effort needed to benefit fully from this untapped potential appears excessively difficult. But because Microsoft Windows 7 often calls for a clean installation, it represents a great opportunity to move up to 64-bit technology, which you can do with little additional work.
