AbiWord?

by MattSegstro-22500910605200755702361582076268 / August 30, 2008 1:35 PM PDT

Does AbiWord run in Vista 64-bit Edition? I have Home Premium and I'm hoping that it can run. I can't find information anywhere about this, positive or negative. I'm not looking for people saying that they have done it or something, I want to know if it's designed for it. You can run anything on anything with a bit of work. I'm interested only in whether it's meant for Vista 64-bit.

Designed for? No. But...

Few applications are actually designed specifically for Vista x64. It does run just as well as on Vista x86, though, without special tweaking.

Very few programs

Very few programs should have any trouble running on Vista x64 if they run on the 32-bit Vista. Don't get too caught up in whether there's a 64-bit version of some program or not, if it runs on the 32-bit Vista, there's an excellent chance it will run just as well on the 64-bit Vista.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
