    You might want to remove the old driver and then install new driver..

    Do not take anything for granted when installing a newer version...Uninstall the older version first as you may end up having functionality issues...

    Luck.

    Yes, you are confused...

    You have 2 Operating Systems (OS): 32 and 64bit architecture. So far so good.

    In a 64 bit enviroment (OS), you can have both 32 and 64 bit applications.
    In a 32 bit enviroment (OS), you can ONLY have 32 bit app.

    Now, to have a 64 bit enviroment, off course I need some hardware capable of supporting 64 bit computing, then I need a 64 bit processor....Again, with this hardware I can install both 32 and 64 bit OS.

    I just simply cannot run a 64bit enviroment with a 32bit hardware (cpu)..

    It's like trying to empty a 20 gallon water tank into a 10 gallon tank...Just not possible. it will spill all over..I need something bigger..But how about filling a 10 gallon water tank into a 20 gallon tank, yes, I can do that.

    Luck.

    Right. Yes. All applications, all drivers, every single software needs to be 32 bit.
