Vista compatible software that runs on Vista x64 but is only available as 32-bit will be installed into the x86 Program Files folder. 64-bit software will install into the other one. e.g. You have 2 versions of Internet Explorer with x64 Vista, one is 32-bit, one is 64-bit. 64 bit is noticably faster, but plug-ins such as flash etc will not work.


Usually Vista will automatically install any programs into the right folder.

Long story short, you are running Vista 64 bit.
