Windows 10: Office 2013 Outlook 32 bit Solved

    Office 2013 Outlook 32 bit

    I'm an windows 10 insider with a problem with my Office outlook. My Office 2013 ran just fine last year until the middle of November. At that time I could not receive any incoming emails. I could and still can send out going emails and occasionally receive maybe one email a week. Had to revert to web mail from my provider until the bugs were worked out of windows mail, witch I am not very fond of. I've seen better 3rd party email programs then that. It has always bugged me that my Word, Power point, Access, and Excel work just fine but not the Outlook after November 2015.
    The one program I uses the most. Today while checking the settings of a theme package, I found out that my Outlook was listed as " Office 2013 Outlook 32 bit." I'm running Windows 10 on my 64 bit Dell as a 64 bit system.
    Does anyone have an idea how I can get the Outlook of my Office to run as a 64 bit program or what else I could do to get it to run other than a viewer?

    Does anyone have an idea how I can get the Outlook of my Office to run as a 64 bit program
    Office 2010 was the first version of Office to be offered as either 32-bit or 64-bit, previous versions were 32-bit, probably back to version 2000, maybe a bit earlier.

    I had FrontPage 2003 on my computer when I got the 64-bit version of Office 2010 and had to first remove FP due to incompatibility with 64-bit Office.

    You should have no issues with running 32-bit programs on 64-bit Windows but can't run 64-bit programs on 32-bit Windows.

    To change to 64-bit Office you'll need the disc or download for it and uninstall the 32-bit version first.

    I have heard of folks that were able to run both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office but probably had to do a Custom Install to specify a different Folder one from the other.

    32-bit Windows stores 32-bit programs in C:\Program Files but 64-bit Windows stores 64-bit programs in C:\Program Files and 32-bit programs in C:\Program Files (x86). [Change C: to whatever drive/partition your Windows may be on if different.]

    Problems with Outlook itself may require a re-install.
