I've read that I could include: Get(ApplicationArchitecture)
to tell the user which they are running, but is there a rule of thumb they could use to determine which of my Runtime's they should download?
On Windows you can right click on My Computer > Properties and it will show something like this:
Look at the System Type. N.B. On Windows you can run both the 32bit and 64bit versions of applications.
On Mac OS X follow these instructions:

Thanks, but they won't have FM. It's a general Q of how a User would know whether their 'machine' will run my 32- or 64-bit Runtime.
nowadays and probably for almost a decade, all Mac's are running 64-bit. So should your Runtime.
For PC, using 32-bit FM seem to be safe since this runs on 32-bit AND 64-bit WIndows OS.
As soon as your solution is interacting with other applications as Outlook (FM Script 'Send Email via Mail Client'), your Runtime should be of same architecture as, - let's say, Outlook.
Thanks to both of you. I can direct Users from that info.
… or wait another day for more opinions.
My recommendation so far ist to use 64-bit for Mac and 32-bit for PC (with exception IF 64-bit Outlook is used).
I still try to use 1 Installer each for Mac and PC to keep things simple …
So a 64-bit FM Runtime will run on all recent Macs AND a 32-bit FM Runtime would run on all PCs? I assume with a 64-bit PC you'd not be as fast as it could be?
I work in the NHS, so needless to say, most PCs are 32-bit.
