Camtasia Cannot Be Installed on Windows 10 ARM-based PCs


When installing Camtasia I am presented with an error that Camtasia requires a 64-bit Operating System.


ARM-based PCs such as the Surface Pro X cannot install 64-bit applications, and Camtasia is only offered as a 64-bit application. You can learn more about what versions of Windows are supported here.
