I see no reason to think otherwise. 64*bit address space is much leaner on the
However, the very process of rebasing the applications has nothing to do with
platform specs.
Apps are built on different machines, and their address space may collide,
when they meet on one target system.
64-bit platform just offer more space, meaning that more applications can be
installed that rely on POSIX address space semantics.
Still, you should only install what you are actually using.

setup.exe offer all the tools you need for automatic installation.
