    Just my two cents about this. What you state is very interesting, because most of the video editing software (serious and professional software) run in 64 bits. Why? because you have access to all the memory and with 32 bits, you only have access to 4 GB of RAM. oh surprise! That is, only 4. So many laptop makers (in the past), as a marketing tool, they sold you a 32 bits laptop with 8 GB RAM. Wonderful, you have wasted the money, because with a 32 bits operating system you only will access to 4 GB. Is like if I sell you a flat, with 8 rooms and you only can access four, because the other four are closed with a lock.

    SONY VEGAS did it some years ago, they finally stopped to produce video editors in 32 bits.

    However, all government people, Federal and non Federal, use old fashion computers, obsolete and  probably they won't understand what the hell is 64 bits?

    BUT, many professionals in the video editing industry will ask you for a 64 bits version, because it makes the system reliable and fast. Now Camtasia can access all the RAM, it renders faster, it is smoother, it is a jewell.

    So what about a Camtasia 9 Lite?

    Lite versión for old computers, in 32 bits, with basic options.

    The product range should diversify to Camtasia 9 Lite (32 bits for customers with low profile computers)

    and the actual one, Camtasia 9 Premium (64 bits for customers with more up to date computers)

    I understand the benefit of using a 64-bit system over 32, I'm sure our IT department does as well, but it takes a lot of money to convert and replace thousands of laptops, which most Federal Agencies don't always rank as a top priority. As I said before, we are starting to upgrade to 64-bit machines, but it'll be a slow process and usually happens when an older machine breaks. Even then the max RAM given is only 4 Gigs with the newer machines.

    In the mean time, it would cause a work stoppage for our Camtasia developers with 32-bit systems if we upgrade to Camtasia 9. So for now or until everyone is upgraded at my agency, we'll not be upgrading to Camtasia 9. Which may not be a bad thing, as I'm sure there are a few bugs to work out, as there often are with a new product release.

    do you need to purchase & download Camtasia for 32 bit Windows?

    CS 8.6.0 was the last 32 bit version released

    I would contact TechSmith sales and inquire how to buy the older version

    The debate about the 32 bits version, is very easy to understand since a professional point of view. Professional editors, use Professional 64 bits software, with Machines running a 64 bits Windows, because it is more realible, faster and you can produce high quality videos with better results.
    The jump to the 64 bits, was something Adobe did long time with Premiere, and VEGAS also some years ago.
    The problem here, Camtasia, and the problem with VEGAS some years ago, is the same.
    Many non professional users, replied they needed the 32 bits.

    When I say non professional, I mean people having a hard workflow of post production with a lot of videos.

    Many people using Camtasia come from the "presentations world", they have just jumped over the video presentation with a background from PowerPoint... for example.

    The solution is (for people needing the 32 bits), to purchase the older version, because you using an older computer. And start to think that in several years, your next computer must be 64 bits.

    Modern, fast and reliable computers run in 64 bits. Camtasia 9 is thought for those computers.
    People needing to use a Camtasia that run in old machines... need the 8 version.
    I bought a computer in 2009, and it was running a Windows in 64 bits...
    Now that computer is old...
    Thinking about 32 bits... is thinking in 2006, 2007 or 2008... more or less, or perhaps in very low profile computers.
    A modern video editor cannot work in a computer from 10 years ago...
    We have to be realist. As simple as that.

    Dave reply was fine, I think the official reply about 32 bits was not well understood. Perhaps we have a misconception problem and also a language problem. Let's explain this with examples.
    First of all, 32 bits machines are not old. They VERY OLD. I have a 64 bits machine from 2009... and I consider this old... a 32 bits machine... I think that would be (with all my respects) a dinosaur. Really I don't want to sound unrespectful, I am only trying to compare.
    Lifetime in computers is like in animals, a dog don't have the same life expectancy as a human being and a laptop or a PC don't have the same life expectancy. Now we can start to talk about how angry do you feel for those 3000 bucks you paid for a high-end laptop that now do not value more than 100 bucks, today, but that is life in technology.
    But I still need Camtasia 9 in 32 bits version.
    Okay, what is Camtasia 9?
    Camtasia 9 is a Porsche Carrera 4S.
    And what is Camtasia 8.6?
    Camtasia 8 is a nice Mercedes

    Okay, but I want my Porsche Carrera 4S (Camtasia 9) eat the same fuel as my Mercedes!!!
    Sadly, that is impossible.

    Okay... but I love the performance and the speed of that wonderful Porsche Carrera 4S! and I want it get the same fuel quantity as my old Mercedes!

    That is technically impossible.

    And what may I do?
    Buy a Mercedes (Camtasia 8.6) or think about upgrading to a car with better performance Porsche Carrera 4S (Camtasia 9).

    The good news:
    Modern computers are all 64 bits. Most of the new computers are made with 64 bits processors, and the default Windows, be 8, be 10... it is offered in the 64 bits version, so most of the modern computers, will run perfectly Camtasia 9.

    But no, we want a very old computer run perfectly modern software. Impossible.
    Impossible for Camtasia, Impossible for Photoshop CC, Impossible for Indesign CC.

    That is impossible.

    And what are my options in that case?
    You have the same options SONY VEGAS users had, and the same options Adobe Premiere users had. They were forced to use older versions, for their olders computer. As simple as this.

    And why?
    Because modern software, need a modern operating system, 64 bits based, leveraging all system memory. And that in video is more speed and performance.

    Example: I want 1 million dollars. And that is impossible, unless someone want to donate :D
    In that case my pockets are opened and I will start to beleive everything is possible.
    Cheers

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How can I use Camtasia license in 32-bit O/S?.

    Hello, I bought Camtasia license today, but when I started installing program, I saw a message that Camtasia 9 requires a 64-bit O/S. And I found that you have no plan to offer Camtasia 9 as a 32-bit version.I use Windows 7 32-bit O/S in my company. Then what should I do? Can I use another Version that is working in 32-bit O/S or can I get refund? There is no meaning that I can't use your program in specified computer.

    p.s. I'm sorry for my poor English skills.

    But what Camtasia is doing is very WRONG, they should at least Indicate on the Download Page where it says WINDOWS and MAC that it will only work for 64 Bit OS, I just finish wasting 270MB+ of Data now downloading a 64 Bit Camtasia that didn't end up working, So annoying... Like what they do here on Minisoft Group, they tell you what version of OS it is compatible with.

    You mean that they should have mentioned it on the System Requirements page, which everyone should read before they buy any software, much less download it?

    Like they did here?

    Me, too! I need Camtasia Studio 9 32 Bits. And my restriction is not my computer, but all the other apps based on 32 Bit I use on it!

  • Mal Reynolds
    I'm not sure what you mean by "but all the other apps based on 32 Bit I use on it!". When you're recording Camtasia really could not care less whether the application it's recording is 32 bit or 64 bit. The only issue is with the Powerpoint add-in, and that runs just fine in my 32 bit version of Powerpoint 2016.

    Thank you for your reply. I mean that I have Windows 10 32 Bits in my computer, and all my software are meant to operate under that archtecture/platform. I have even old hardware, such as video capture device MPEG 2 and a TCÊ Scanner (both of them from "ancient" 1996's) which only install in Windows 32 Bits archtecture/platform. That's why I can't change the whole archtecture/platform just to run Camtasia Studio 64 Bits... I'd lose many other softwares and hardware connected to my computer. That's why I urge for a Camtasia Studio 32 Bits, just like I used to have till then.

    Thank you very much for your reply. The problem is it's not barely a matter of softwares. It comprises hardwares. As I mentinoned before, I have an old TCÊ Scanncer device, a mpeg 2 tv caprture device, and a HP692C printer, all of them from the 1990's. That's why I can't change my Windows 10 32 Bits, which keeps all of these hardwares working fine, by a Windows 10 64 Bits, mainly just because of one more incompatible software, despite being the so important Camtasia Studio 64 Bits. A Camtasia Studio 32 Bits will solve the problem, that's why I need it!

    A large amount of 32 bit software will run on a 64 bit computer.  
    64 bit software can not normally run on a 32 bit computer.

    If you upgrade to a newer computer you can run both, usually with no problems.

    Out of about 25+ software programs I use on my 64 bit computer at least 10 are 32 bit programs that I have used for many many years.
     A few that I used before the upgrade to 64 bit do not run. 

    I loaded Windows 10 on my previous computer which was 32 bit and it did run but it was painfully slow compared to the newer 64 bit computer.

    It is worth the upgrade. 

    I think all new computers are 64 bit.  
    I have seen them new and refurbished for $400 and up.
    You would likely need to add more memory to them which is cheep around $35.

    Why do you think that those external devices will not work with Windows 10 ?

    I also have an old scanner and an old HP printer and they work perfectly fine with Windows 10 ( 64 bit ). When you load windows 10 it looks for Drivers that work with your plugged in devices and updates what is needed for them to work.

    I did have a friend who's printer did not work but we were able to go to the companys website and download a new printer driver manually and run the driver update and the printer went to working.

    What makes you think that your devices will not do the same, that is, work with Windows 10 ( 64 bit ). It is Backwards compatible, maybe not as well when it first came out but by now most companies have updated there drivers to support using Windows 10 ( 64 bit).

    I doubt that TechSmith or any company is going to create a 32 bit version because it is just not cost effective to develop as the industry has gone to 64 bit pretty much.

    I wish there was a simpler way to solve your situation.

    If you  are wondering if your hardware will work, just to be sure, find a friend with Windows 10 ( 64 bit ) that is very computer savvy  and plug your device into their computer, reboot if necessary, and do what is needed to make it work, then you can be sure.

    I think that at some point you need to bite the bullet and upgrade everything. I agree with Bob Lewis that there's a performance benefit but there's a more critical issue which will bite you eventually.

    At present you're in a situation which is like someone in the early 2000's holding onto 16 bit hardware and software; at some point the world moves on, and you may one day find that a Windows 32 bit update has screwed up your ability to use your hardware even on 32 bit. Don't think that this sort of thing hasn't happened before, incidentally.  For example a couple of years back MS unilaterally decided to disable the old SecuROM DRM system on Windows. That meant that users who had software which used that system suddenly found that their software would no longer run.

    If MS pulls the same sort of stunt with any of the Windows internal code that affects the drivers for your ancient hardware, you're suddenly going to have a brick on your desk because it's pretty certain that the manufacturers will no longer be writing new 32 bit drivers for hardware that is over 20 years old.

    MS won't be dumping 32 bit Windows 10 any time soon because all other things being equal a 64 bit O/S takes more memory than a 32 bit one does. Windows still need to run on low spec machines so 32 bit Win 10 will be with us for a while. However it's worthwhile noting that MS has already stopped making 32 bit versions of Windows Server because really, 32 bits does not cut it for a server these days. The memory per application limits alone are far too restrictive.

    Similarly rendering video is not something that should really be done on a low end machine and most people who are doing it will be on 64 bit, which is what the vast majority of desktop Windows 10 sales are these days. For Techsmith to make a 32 bit version would be investing a lot of time and effort for the benefit of a rapidly shrinking number of people. And frankly that time and effort is needed elsewhere to move the product into the future rather than clinging on to the past.

    The workaround, as per Dave O'Rourke's post above, is for people who are stuck on 32 bit for the foreseeable future to use the last version of Camtasia 8. As I have noted elsewhere, I was massively underwhelmed by the C9 upgrade; it struck me as being C8 with 64 bit, a couple of relatively minor changes and a funereal low res interface. The thing that made it worth the price of admission to me was 64 bit which has improved rendering speed noticeably if not blisteringly. But you can't use that anyway. That being the case, 32 bit C8 is still a perfectly workable product solution; it's still good at what it does and will certainly see you through until you can shift everything up to 64 bit.

    Thanks so much for all your kind comments. It's like smartphones and Android SO running on it... we give up some apps, like WApp, or buy a new device suitable to the new Android SO versions. I'd rather keep my Core 2 Quad and the Windows 10 32 Bits. In case I need to run Camtasia Studio 64 Bits, nothing better than a dual boot machine, running both Win1032B and Win1064B, what is easy for me to do. See you, dear friends. Bye for now.
