Twp "Program Files" Folders?

Recommended Posts

Windows 7 installed 2 "Program FIles" folders on the C drive. Anybody know why or if they are both necessary? It gets confusing when installing add-ons into FSX.Thanks,Howard

I would guess you installed the 64 bit version? If so then: When you install a 32-bit application, it will always auto-detect your C:\Program Files (x86) as the default folder to install. The opposite goes for 64-bit apps, it just installs in the C:\Program Files folder. Craig
