Can I upgrade from a 32-bit version of NVivo 9 to a 64-bit version of NVivo 9?

Both a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version of NVivo 9 are available.

The 64-bit version of NVivo 9 can only be installed on computers that are running a 64-bit version of the Windows 7 operating system.

If you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows 7, and you are working with the 32-bit version of NVivo 9, you can upgrade to the 64-bit version of NVivo 9 free. However, you will need to deactivate and uninstall your 32-bit version of NVivo 9 prior to installing the new 64-bit version.

Please note however, that there are some known limitations with the 64-bit version of NVivo: 

  • Some video files with .mov or .qt extensions may not play
  • You will not be able to change the automatic layout of models
