Roland Andersson <> asked some followup questions
about running Stata for 64-bit Windows:
> Is there no benefit at all of using 32-bit Stata on 64-bit windows?

There is no performance or memory reason to run 32-bit Stata on
64-bit Windows.  If you have 64-bit Windows, I would always
recommend running 64-bit Stata.

In my earlier posting I wrote,

If Roland already owns Stata 11, he already has the 64-bit version
of Stata 11 for Windows.  The Stata installation DVD includes versions
of Stata for all supported operating systems, including those I listed
above.  When installing on a 64-bit Windows system, the instalation
program will offer the choice of installing 64-bit executables or
32-bit executables.

The only reason someone might want to install 32-bit Stata on 64-bit
Windows is if the 64-bit machine is a file server and 32-bit machines
will be accessing the Stata installation across network mounts.
