I have an older design program that I need to open the help package. I found this page at MS.com and tried downloading an executable for my Win8 machine. But it seems this will only run on a 32 bit OS and I'm running 64 bits. Any suggestions?
I'm not sure this is really a solution. As best I can tell there is no
64 bit version in spite of what the page says. In a couple of threads solutions are presented that don't seem to work for many and at the end of one just this past May a MS representative said, "We are working on rebuilding KB917607 to resolve this issue." So far this fix has not appeared. So I guess I have my answer.
I actually did and got a page with checkboxes so one can download 32bit or 64bit or both versions but didn't try to download. Now that I tried at first nothing downloaded but I guess that's Microsoft hating on Chrome. Retried with IE and both Windows8-RT-KB917607-x64.msu and Windows8-RT-KB917607-x86.msu both downloaded.
