  • Hi,

    IE8 comes in 2 versions, depending upon the bitness of your windows version.

    On x64 chipsets you get x86 IE and x64IE..... x86 chipsets you only get x86 IE8....

    x64 versions of IE cannot load the x86 ActiveX controls and IE addons that are compiled for an x86 target platform and so the x64 version uses a different node in the registry to identify addons and IEaddons that are x64 compiled.. (WOW64).
