64-bit Upgrade Help for Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Servers
Microsoft Windows 7 is offered in a 64-bit edition that sets a new standard for workstation dependability and performance. Unfortunately, for most organizations the migration to 64-bit technology is problematic due to the requirement to make a new setup on each workstation. This requires re-installing programs, saving and restoring data files, and running new drivers. Though companies in most cases are already using 64-bit hardware, the effort required to take full advantage of these resources appears too difficult.
