No use to me !!

Only in the small print of "System requirements" (as far as I can see) does the vital information "64 bit" appear. Since my lab runs 32 bit XP machines this was a waste of $179.99 !!!

Thanks for your feedback. The EC4S950 definitely supports both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, which wasn't mentioned in the manual for the product. Sorry for the confusion.
