Both a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version of NVivo 10 for Windows are available.
The 64-bit version of NVivo 10 for Windows can only be installed on computers that are running a 64-bit version of the Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating system.
If you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10, and you are working with the 32-bit version of NVivo 10 for Windows, upgrading to the 64-bit version of NVivo 10 for Windows is free.
