It's the 128 bit version.

The Help, About box tells you what version. The most common question is the '128 bit encryption' of IE and OE so I'd look at Help, About.

IE6SP1 shows 128 bit cipher strength in Help/About. OE6 has version 6.00.2800.1123. Shows nothing about 128 or 64 bit

OE uses IE's DLLs and more.

Once you know that, you can figure it out.

Maybe I'm not as savvy as some people and need to be led by the hand.

Now, was that so hard to provide a direct answer? Thank you!

I don't hand out fish.

If you want fish, try calling Microsoft. Here I will continue to teach fishing lessons and supply extra information so you will become self sufficient.

In closing, we never answered the 64-bit question you posed. I had to guess you meant the usual 128-bit question.

You are correct, you did not answer my 64 bit question. Windows update wants to know what edition of OE you have when you download an OE security update.
I thought these forums were for the uninitiated asking for help, not fish.

We have a forum for that.

The Newbies Forum has that sort of flavor.

As to Microsoft's Updates, most will check if they apply and if it doesn't, won't install. I can't think of one that doesn't do that for say Windows XP, but if you go back far enough to 1995 days, I bet you could find one that would install even if it shouldn't.

As to help and fish. The analogy is that if we hand out the way to find the answer rather than the answer, members will learn how to find the next answer on their own. No one is paid here so it's a community effort to pull everyone up a notch. If you want nothing but answers, then never read one of my replies. I often supply a google example which you can choose which article has your answer. I do that in hopes that by showing the path to the path, one can find their own answer the next time or help another find an answer.

This is where the fishing lesson analogy plays out. If one handed out only fish, there would never be fishermen but hungry people.

Cheers,

Bob
