32Bit version for Windows? 0.19? 0.18.4?

Postby IngoMeier » Mon Oct 28, 2019 9:55 am

Hi!

Will there be a 32Bit Windows version of 0.19 (near future?)?

Am I the only one, who needs the 32Bit version?


There are multiple reasons for a 32Bit version.
From my experience Windows 64Bit takes much more memory and that is worse on 4GB systems.

We have one system we will upgrade to Windows 10 32Bit where old software is running. This software will
not run on 64Bit systems at all and there are no updates available. But we need FreeCAD there too.
This is my/our main issue.


Thanks,
Ingo
1st: Version 0.19.18640 / 0.18.16131 on Windows 10 64bit
2nd: Version 0.18.16131 on Windows 7 32bit (can't be switched to 64bit because of not upgradable 16bit SW packages)
3rd: Version 0.19.18640 / 0.18.16131 on Windows 7 64bit

There will be a 0.18.4 32 bit (hopefully by the weekend)

0.19 is tougher as I have to build a whole Libpack for 32 bit, no promises on this.

@Ingo,
… you are not the only one, who would like to have a FC_0.19.18xxx 32bit-version.
My PC could also do 64 bit, but 4 years ago I decided to 32 bit, for some old software,
and now I don't want to reconfigurate it (never change….)
No more thrill with a pre - combined with some activity restraint.
