32-bit or 64-bit?
If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, you will have the option of installing a 32-bit or 64-bit version of NVivo 11 for Windows. The 64-bit version will allow you to utilize more memory, and is a smaller download. However, if you want to work with .mov or .qt video files, we recommend that you install the 32-bit version.
NVivo 11 for Windows will run on Windows 7 or above.
