Can crashes occur when using 32-bit programs on Windows 10?
When using 32-bit programs under Windows 11/10, crashes can occur!
The 32-bit programs can be detected very accurately, the crash itself does not happen because it is a 32-bit program, in some cases 32-bit programs work faster, more stable and better under x64 than their 64-bit versions as they run protected in the WOW 64.
WOW64 is a subsystem on the Windows operating system. This allows 32-bit applications to work on a 64-bit operating system.
If it often happens just start and run programs in Windows compatibility mode, can lead to improvement of program behavior, or if the program has no compatibility in WOW-64, you can run the program in Virtual PC, or XP mode. For some programs, however, the compatibility mode is sufficient.
