32 bit or 64 bit installer?

NOTE: This document is mostly for Windows users, since official installers exist for 32bit and 64 bit. All other platforms have only one installer available. You can install the x64 version and the x86 (32bit) on 64bit Windows, or the x86 (32bit) version on 32bit Windows.

If you ask yourself the question, whether you would want to install the 32 bit or the 64 bit version, consult the table below and check the explanations.

Prepar 3D v4 (64 bit)32 bit & 64 bitCheckout P3D and swift - 32 or 64 bit? what are the pros & cons.
X-Plane 1032 bit & 64 bit64 bit is recommended since it can have more memory. But 32 bit should work fine using the respective X-Plane executables.
X-Plane 1164 bitX-Plane 11 is 64 bit only.

If you are not using any simulator (e.g. just the mapping tool), the 64 bit version is recommended.
