Which version of TRACC (64-bit/32-bit) is best to install?

If possible, we would always recommend installing the 64-bit version of TRACC in order to have the optimum processing power for larger calculations.

The 64-bit version of TRACC can process larger area sizes and larger quantities of data, compared to the 32-bit version of TRACC. The 32-bit version of TRACC, unfortunately, limits the amount of RAM available to TRACC to 2GB, which is only able to process small areas.

Another item to note is that the 64-bit version of TRACC can ONLY be installed on a 64-bit machine, with either the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office or NO Microsoft Office installed at all. Unfortunately, the 64-bit TRACC cannot be installed where the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office exists on the machine. This is due to an incompatibility with the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office and the 64-bit Microsoft Access Driver required for the 64-bit version of TRACC. This is a Microsoft bug that is unavoidable.

To allow you to install the 64-bit version of TRACC, if possible we would recommend acquiring a machine with:

  • The 64-bit version of Windows (7, 8 or 10)
  • At least 8GB of RAM
  • The 64-bit of Microsoft Office installed / NO Office installed at all
