This is the recommended edition for all users. It has the best program compatibility and offers
the best user experience. It is built with dynamic 64-bit technology that works on both
32-bit and 64-bit systems. It uses 32-bit components to support legacy games and programs.
These 32-bit components may trigger antivirus false positive alerts. We believe these
false positives are designed to "encourage" people to move away from 32-bit code rather
than to protect them from genuine threats. You may not encounter these false positives at all.
But if you do and don't like the idea of them, then you can use the Pure 64-bit Edition.
Built with 100% pure 64-bit code. Has degraded user experience on systems with a mixture
of 32-bit and 64-bit programs. This edition does not support cursor enhancements for 32-bit
games and programs, although the highlighter cursor will continue to work normally for both
32-bit and 64-bit programs. Because
there is no 32-bit component present, the program files in this edition do not attract wrongful
AV false positives.
The Pure 64-bit edition is built from identical source code and has identical installed
structure as the Standard edition.
Fully featured like the standard edition. Works on Windows XP and later.
Requires .NET framework 3.5 SP1 or later. Has best performance when used with .NET 4.6 or later.
