Why install the 64-bit version of NVivo?

Newer computers often have 64-bit processors (CPUs) which allow software to access larger amounts of memory (RAM) than older 32-bit processors. The 64-bit version of NVivo can utilize this extra memory, allowing more effective use of your computer’s resources when memory demand is high.

Support for the 32-bit version of NVivo will be phased out in the future, if you have a 64-bit operating system we recommend you install the 64-bit version of NVivo. The 64-bit version of NVivo requires the 64-bit version of Windows 7 (SP 1 or higher), Windows 8, or Windows 10.

The 64-bit version of NVivo can be downloaded from https://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/support-overview/downloads

Note: you must deactivate* and uninstall the 32-bit version of NVivo prior to installing the 64-bit version.
