    Oracle 11g Express Edition does not support 64-bit OS in Windows?

      I thought that the only difference between a 32 bit OS and a 64 bit OS were the lengths of the strings that get passed.  In other words, 32 bit programs should work on 64 bit systems because 32 bits of data have no problem flowing along a 64-bit-wide pipeline.  The reverse, however, wouldn't work.  I'm just curious, if this is the case why won't a 32 bit database program work on a 64 bit OS?

       

      Thanks,
