I say this without really knowing for sure:
but JB is 32-bit (?).

Look where all the installation files went. Any went into App or AppData for both Programming Files and Programming Files x86 ?

Was JB made so that it installs properly into Programming Files in Windows Vista/7/10 ? No. We are expected to install into some special chosen directory like C:\JBplace or something like that.

I believe Just BASIC is 32 bit since I've never seen anywhere or heard Carl Gundel advertise it as being (or having) a 64 bit version. I looked at the initial release date of the current version 1.01 and see it was 12 years ago which was around the same time (give or take a few months) as the release of the x64 version of Windows XP Pro. Since 64 bit computing was just starting out at that time, there were few 64 bit programs available. While Just BASIC hasn't been updated since then, it is a quality tool to learn programming. I'm a registered user of it's big brother LibertyBASIC which has more capabilities and does get more frequent updates.

A 64 bit version would be nice just to say I had it. Realistically, I haven't run across anything yet that the 32 bit version couldn't handle.
