64 bits operating systems are different from 32 bits operating systems .
During working with assemblers , it is necessary to distinguish this
In a 64 bits operating system , if 32 bits programs will be used , it is
necessary to have 32 bits libraries and support by the operating system .
This means that you can not execute 32 bits programs in a 64 bits operating
system without such support .
In the following page :
"If You Have a 64-Bit PC..."
the especially .
"64-Bit PC" is misleading : It should be "64-Bit Operating System" .
Both Intel and AMD x86 processors mainly support both 32 and 64 bit
operating systems : They are able to execute 32 and 64 bit instructions .
Therefore , important points are bit size of ( 32 or 64 ) operating system
, and handling capability of this feature by compilers and availability of
libraries , and support by the operating system .
It is necessary to have information about 64 bit assembly programming in an
64 bit operating system .
