But, there is a large group of existing native applications that still run in 32-bit compatibility mode on 64-bit operating systems. While integrating 64-bit applications with 32-bit applications, we face numerous compatibility challenges relating to the size of the data type, address, pointers, binary format, and runtime dependencies. The 64-bit applications cannot Continue Reading
