Applies to: Cubit version 5 and above

This article describes how to determine whether your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows. If you do not know what version of Windows you have, you won’t know what Cubit software you can install.

You can check your installed programs in several different ways but this process will use the Control panel to identify installed Windows Operating System version.

  1. Select the Start button and type Control Panel to open the Control Panel in Category view.
  2. Click on System and Security within the Control Panel.
