    Leave it to MS to make ANYTHING complicated for people it offers 2 downloads, but doesn't explain which is appropriate for a computer. This is what it shows:
    en-us\amd64\mseinstall.exe
    9.5MB
    Download
    en-us\x86\mseinstall.exe
    7.5MB

    What works for an AMD 32bit?
    Thanks

    You want x86

    Consider that there are effectively two options.
    The alternative to 32 bit is 64 bit.
    So amd64 is the 64 bit version.
    And x86 is the 32bit version that you want.

    Technically x86 refers to a family of Intel processors and you can get x86-16, x86-32, or even x86-64.
    On its own like this it is used to mean 32bit compatible.

    Thanks, I thought it might be that but I wanted to be sure. Why couldn't they just have put it as you did, much simpler.
    Well thanks again.
