Latest Offline Installer for NAV (64-bit)

I just downloaded the offline installer NAV-ESD-22.17.0.183-EN.exe from http://norton.com/latestnav. Is this installer for both 32-bit and 64-bit?  Probably is, but, I want to be sure before I attempt a setup on a new W10-64 PC coming soon.  Thanks.

It should install on either OS.  I thought that was a requirement from Microsoft years ago.

Krusty13: It should install on either OS.  I thought that was a requirement from Microsoft years ago.

You are probably right and I'll use the installer just downloaded.  However, MS aside, there are lots of separate 32- and 64-bit installers out there.  E.g., I downloaded the installer for Macrium Reflect and there I had to specify 64-bit to get the right one.  At any rate, thanks!

Do please let is know how you get on.  Remember to run Live Update, restarting where required, until no more updates are available.

Cheers.

Hello

Also, please remember to check for any free security programs installed. If any free security programs are in the new computer, please remove them using the removal tool from the other security program and then restart before installing Norton.

Re: Latest Offline Installer for NAV (64-bit)

The Upshot:  while preparing the new Win 10-64 computer offline (removing most apps, all tiles and misc crap-ware) I installed NAV-ESD-22.17.1.50-EN.exe (also offline).  Once done, I connected with the Internet and registered my NAV package and downloaded whatever was available via LiveUpdate.  It all went very smooth.

NAV installs itself as a mixed 32- and 64-bit package.  The way I understand it, Norton is not making a separate 64-bit package as, as they say, there is no need for it.  That's it.

Re: Latest Offline Installer for NAV (64-bit)

In July 2012, Symantec employee PieterV provided the following useful information regarding the 64bit issue: 



We only create x64 binaries where required, for the remainder we use x86 binaries.

There is no benefit to using x64 binaries when x86 binaries work equally well. The only applications that benefit from x64 are applications with more than 3GB memory utilization requirements, and our apps do not fall in that category.

On x86 systems we must have x86 drivers, and on x64 systems we must have x64 drivers.
As such, we always create two sets of drivers, x86 and x64, and the installer carries both sets.

It is a Windows Logo requirement to have the same installer for x86 and x64 systems.
If we were to double all binaries, it would double the size of the installer.

For our plugin DLL's to be loaded by x86 processes, we must have x86 DLL's, to be loaded by x64 processes, we must have x64 DLL's. If we were to create x64 binaries for x64 systems, we would still have to create x86 DLL’s on the x64 systems in order to interact with x86 processes.
As such, we create x64 DLL's only when required, and currently only required for Explorer shell extensions.

We do not currently support x64 versions of Outlook, IE, Chrome, or Firefox. As the demand for the x64 versions of these applications become significant, we will add support.

Every binary we produce must be tested, and every permutation of binaries must be tested. If we produce a x86 version and a x64 version of the same binary, it doubles the testing effort, with no functional benefit, and no benefit to the end customer.

Regards
Pieter

That's what I read too.  I have no issues at all right now (all happy), but, a good idea to add this info here for reference!
