Microsoft® Outlook 2010 64-Bit
Microsoft Office tools are available in both 32 and 64 bit versions. The 64 bit version of the Office tools offers larger capacity to the users while working on bulk data. The Outlook 2010 is also available in the 64 bit version. The features offered by the applications are same in both versions except the capacity of the storage. By default the 32 bit version would be installed on the system. The computers running the 64 bit Operating Systems will install the 64 bit Office tools by default on their systems. The 32 bit and 64 bit applications will not be compatible with each other. The installation disc for the Office 2010 tools includes both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions. The user can select the installation of the version depending upon the OS and the user needs. Some features provided by the 32 bit version would be absent in the 64 bit Outlook 2010 like the ActiveX controls which are not much important for the Outlook users. The integration with the Communicator software will be affected while changing 32 bit to 64 bit version of the Outlook application.
