CheckPoint 32-bit vs 64-bit

With the release of CheckPoint 1.3, the software is now available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Rather than have both versions in the same installer, we’ve decided to split the two versions into separate installers, so as to reduce offshore download times.

On any modern computer, you should run the 64-bit version if possible. This version will be more able to handle the occasional high memory usage required during the report data generation, especially with multiple vessel databases.

If you’re running the 32-bit version, to change to the 64-bit version

1. Backup your database (this isn’t required, but is good practice).
2. Uninstall the 32-bit version.
3. Install the 64-bit version.

If in doubt, the version type is shown in the CheckPoint About window.
