Is it possible to run IE10 32-bit frame in Windows 7,8 64-bit?

I know there is a way to change the bit for IE tabs. But Windows 64-bit always runs IE 64-bit frame even though I run it from under the Program Files (x86) folder.

  • What you describe is not possible. If IE is being ran out of the Program Files x96 folder then you are running the 32-bit browser. – Ramhound Jun 21 '13 at 16:26

  • @Ramhound: Not true. With IE10+ even if you manually execute the 32-bit iexplore.exe it will still launch the 64-bit EXE and the 32-bit version will then terminate. The frame/manager process (which the OP wants to know about) cannot be executed in 32-bit mode any longer on 64-bit Windows (see my answer to the question mentioned above), although with Enhanced Protected Mode disabled and some registry tweaking (see the other answer) tabs can be executed as 32-bit processes. – Karan Jun 21 '13 at 23:55
