32 Bit vs 64 Bit

Hello,
I have a basic question regarding installation and compatbility of 32, 64 bit version of webMethods components.

  • Can I install 64 bit version of software on 32-bit OS.
  • Can I install 32 bit version of software on 64-bit OS.
    What are the resource consideration (Memory, Threads, CPU, etc…) one needs to take into consideration while switching from 32-bit to 64-bit and vice-versa.

Any pointers to information source is well appreciated.

Regards,
Manoj

You can install 32 bit version of software on 64-bit OS.

For resource consideration kindly refer the hardware requirements guide provided by SAG. Let me know if you still have question.
