I went to download version 5.0.0 of DataWarrior, which sounds like it has some great new features. When I tried to install it, I got a message saying that my processor is not supported.

Is it correct to say that you are no longer supporting 32-bit Windows installations? I understand if so - just want to make sure that I understand the issue properly.

Thanks for your continued work on this project.

Dear Andrew, I am sorry to hear that you can't run the 64-bit version for Windows. The 32-bit version was only existing for the reason that MicroSoft recommended to install 32-bit Java on 64-bit computers, because they had technical issues with Internet explorer 64-bit. Since version 4.7.2 DataWarrior uses its own Java installation rather than the pre-installed one. Therefore, a 32-bit version didn't seem necessary anymore. To be honest, I didn't think that somebody would miss the 32-bit version. What you could do is to download the linux version and update the 'datawarrior' shell scripts, which starts datawarrior on Linux. The Syntax for Windows is slighly different because of the classpath separators. The only disadvantage would be, that you wouldn't have proper file type support. You would need to open all files from within the DataWarrior application.

Hope that helps somewhat,
