Install 64bit & 32bit

Install 64bit & 32bit

When we used to use Unix machines I could install all the binaries on my
central server no mater what version of Unix I was running.

I'm trying to see if I can do the same thing in Windows with 32 & 64 bit
versions of ProE.

I have a server that is serving as a network attached drive for all our
machines. The operating system doesn't matter.

I install the 32 bit version onto the server from my 32bit machine. All the
users with 32 bit machines can access it and it works fine.

I now want to install the 64bit version onto the server from my machine,
but the installer will not run because it's a 32 bit machine.

Is there a way to get this onto the server apart from kicking one of the
users off a 64 bit machine to do the install?

If I had a 64bit machine, could I also install the 32bit version?

Not that I know of.

Yes.

I do the same thing for my office, we all run from a common install on the network. I was pleased, when I the wildfire 5 pre-release installer gave you the option to install both 32 and 64 bit into the same folder and the correct version ran based on your OS. But now I have the production release and that option is gone! If anyone knows how to do it please post.
