Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is the client version of the Microsoft 64-bit operating 
system that executes on 64-bit extensions systems.  

2.  What does the “x64” mean? 

x64 is Microsoft’s term for its software platforms supporting 64-bit extensions to the x86 
instruction set. A single version (i.e., binary image) of Microsoft Windows products for x64 
platforms will support both major 64-bit processor brands. 

3.  Does HP have information on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and compatible 

workstations? 

HP maintains a web site with data on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition: 

http://www.hp.com/workstations/pws/windowsxp64

4.  Will Windows XP Professional x64 Edition be available in standard retail channels? 

Currently Microsoft does not plan to offer a retail version of Windows XP Professional x64 
Edition. It will be available only through OEMs and some of the volume license programs. 
Microsoft may change their stance depending on adoption and customer demand. 

5.  Will Windows XP Professional x64 Edition be available in different languages? 

Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is available in full language versions of English and 
Japanese only. Microsoft offers the “Multi-language User Interface” (MUI) option that changes 
the majority of the screens, dialogs, and prompts to another language. MUI is added to the 
English OS. Text that would appear in English will appear in the other language. MUI 
language packs are available for French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Japanese, 
Korean, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. 

6.  Can I try out Windows XP Professional x64 Edition? 

Microsoft has a trial version of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition available for download 
or you can order a CD. See the following link 

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/evaluation/trial.mspx

If you have a system capable for running the x64 version of the operating system you can 
download the 120day trial version for evaluation. This can be the best way to determine if you 
have drivers to support your devices and if your software applications function as expected. 

Note, you must have a system capable of running the x64 OS to install the trial version. 

7.  What if I buy a system with Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and determine it is 

not right for my applications or environment? 

Microsoft does not have an exchange program or other method to trade in your Windows XP 
Professional x64 Edition license and media for the 32-bit version of Windows XP Professional. 
The generic answer is you need to purchase the 32-bit Windows XP Professional. If you are 
part of one of Microsoft’s Volume License or Software Assurance programs you MAY be 
licensed to exchange OS versions. You must refer to your particular license agreement with 
Microsoft.  

Performing evaluations with the trial version of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition may be 
the best method to determine if the x64 version of the OS is right for you. See the following 
link 

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/evaluation/trial.mspx

The information in this document is subject to change at any time until the OS is officially released.
