WordSmith 8.0, 64 bit version

  • This version runs on Windows 7, 10 and 11.
  • 64bit software is faster in many ways, and it makes all the computer's memory available. Most computers have 16GB or more. (32bit software can only use 2GB at one time.)
  • Any WordSmith 8.0 registration code is valid for both the 32bit and 64bit versions.
  • You can run both on the same PC.
  • The Help is gradually getting adapted from the WS8 32bit help.
