I had the same issue on my machine. Check your Windows Path variable. My path linked Java via C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath and that folder contained symlinks to the actual executables located under C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_45\bin. I deleted the the C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath entry and replaced it with C:\Program ...

First up, make sure that your processor is 64-bit. You can figure that out with Speccy and/or Google. (If your machine isn't 64-bit, you'll never be able to run a 64-bit OS.) Go to the Microsoft Software Recovery page. Enter your 64-bit Windows 7 product key and fill out any other forms it throws at you. It'll download an ISO file, which is the image of the ...

Why do companies like Microsoft still make 32 bit operating systems, when everyone have at least a dual core CPU? There is enough of the market who do not have a 64-bit processor contained within their device. It also does take more engineering resources on Microsoft's part to offer both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Microsoft believes it ...

With only 1.5G of RAM 64 bit will be a waste honestly the MAIN and most common advantage of 64 bit (x86_64) is the fully optimized use of RAM over 4Gb (without PAE).. 64 bit systems can either 32 and 64 bit OSes however the reverse is a major no-go. In short, given the lower specs the 32 Bit OS is better for your use-case..

no, this is not possible. The only way to install Windows 8.1 on this CPU is to use the 32Bit (x86) Version which is recommend when only using 2GB of RAM.

By default 32Bit application still only use 2GB of RAM under a 64Bit Windows like they do on a 32Bit Windows. To allow 4GB of memory usage under a 64Bit Windows the IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE flag must be set. If the developers haven't set this flag with the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE linker option during compilation you can use a tool which sets the flag in the ...

I have done this once, on Debian; my experience ought to apply to Ubuntu too. Unlike you, I had a planned upgrade, so always had the option to go back to the old hardware if necessary. Short answer: yes, you'll be able to boot, assuming that you have something like a stock kernel on the disk, and sufficient drivers built-in (or in an initrd) to be able to ...

Just in case anyone sees this question, I was able to achieve the same thing with FileZilla, using the Filter options.
