Paradox Q&A Flashcard:
 A flashcard from our Paradox Flashcards Library
 A FAQ from our Paradox FAQ Page



I wanted to check out if there was a 64 bit Paradox for Windows. I believe this database tool is excellent especially in defining a database.


No 64-bit version of Paradox for Windows. Just the current 32-bit version and the older 16-bit version. However, 64-bit versions of Windows can run 32-bit programs very well. If you're running Vista 64-bit, you may wish to stick with Paradox 9 but Vista isn't a good OS for older programs. Interestingly enough, Paradox 9, 10, and 11 run fairly well on Windows 7 which means you can keep using your Paradox applications long into the future (just skip Vista).

More Info

The versions of Paradox include Paradox for DOS, Paradox for Windows 16bit, Paradox for Windows 32bit, and Paradox for Linux (runs on Wine). There is no 64bit version but the 32bit version will run on 64bit Windows.

I tried my Paradox for DOS in a 64 bit vista in a dos window. It told me soemthing like "theis version of windows is incompatible."

Actually we running Paradox 8 (32bit) and I just migrate to new Core I5 Intel machines, with Windows 7 64bits and 8gb of RAM. Could Paradox 32bits handles more of 3gigabytes of RAM?

I don't think so since Paradox is a 32bit application itself. So, although the OS it's running can (a 64bit OS), 32bit apps cannot.

It is informed that new version of a window is updated and all the information are given in organized form so if you are looking contact with us. There are a lot of best writing services in all countries that are working for the development of windows.
