Which Win 10 for Visual Studio / DirectX

Recommended Posts

I am going to buy a windows 10 system for use with visual c++ 2015 express.  The software is for 32 bit os but I here it works on 64 bit os?

 

The directX sdk can be obtained by getting windows sdk or downloading visula studio update three.  Does this sdk work on both windows 64 bit and windows 32 bit?

 

Which would you recommend buying the 32 bit or 64 bit Win10 with these two factors involved?

 

 

Thank you,

Yes, it does. I have successfully ran it on my laptop with Windows 10 Pro x64.

Yes, it does. I have successfully built projects which use the DirectX SDK on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows installations.

I second @[member='mhagain']. Off the top of my head, the only reason to stick with 32-bit Windows would be if you owned a particular hardware device for which you do not have a 64-bit device driver. But since you want to buy a new computer, that is probably not the case.

32bit windows is usefull if you are using an old machine, 6/7 years old.

All new computers (Also the lowest level), uses a 64bit processor.

So, yes, take a 64bit win10 os.

 

Visual studio works on both, x86 and x64.

The directx sdk compile on both.

 

So, go with an x64 machine  :wink:
