Newsbin 6.90 Beta 2 installed 64bit on 32bit system

Postby mjpierce » Tue Feb 09, 2021 11:43 am

I just tried installing Newsbin 6.90 Beta 2 on my Win 7 32bit machine.

The installer correctly detected the 32bit OS but installed the 64bit application.
It even put the "Newsbin Pro 64" icon on my desktop and "NewsbinPro64.exe" in "Program Files".

I can send a pic of the error message if you like.

None of the beta's will support 32 bits. I thought I removed it from the installer but apparently I didn't remove enough.

I haven't decided on whether 6.82 will the the end of the line for 32 bits but I'm thinking about it.

Since Windows 10 OS still supports 32 bit with their latest 20H2 version I would suggest that supporting 32 bit Newsbin is still appropriate.
The minimum system requirements for Win10 32 are quite a bit less than Win10 64. Thus, extending the life of older machines instead of turning them into E-Waste.
I'm sure that some Newsbin users, such as myself, would like to see Newsbin 32 bit supported a bit more, maybe even until the 32 bit OS isn't supported.
