I'll repeat myself:

32-bit applications tend to be more stable on 64-bit Windows than 64-bit applications are.
That has nothing to do with company support or the bitness of the O.S. itself. 32-bit Windows is just as stable as 64-bit Windows.

I never did get around to this, but thank you for putting up with my incessant questions.

Still interesting that's how it works though.
