Default To run FLUENT in a 64 bit machine
Posts: n/a
Dear All,

I would like to buy a 64 bit machine. Should I install the 64 bit Windows? May I still use the previous version of Fluent? The current version of my fluent is 6.2.15?

Thank you very much.

You can run it on both WinXP or Win x64, however Fluent 6.2.16 for WIndows is 32-bit, so it will be emulated to 64-bit layer by means of WoW(Windows on Windows)emulator. You won't notice any difference in speed, i tested it on both OS. If you need to use >2GB/simulation the best way is to get 64-bit Fluent for 64-bit Linux.
