    Never get that error! But it's an suggestion even from MS to use Office 2013 32bit even on 64bit machines.

    That is true, but it is only to save your disk, memory and processor usage. Even I use 64bit office with no problem.

    And because of app/plug-in compatibility issues.

    Yes, i thought this was the main reason. I don't see any real benefits to the x64 version. Its not like the x64 copy "renders" doc files faster :)

    Personally it's the same to me!

    But, a heavy Excel User would have problems with it at 64 bit while works just fine as 32bit! Some of my customers having exactly those problemk and were changed back to 32bit!
