  VMD will run fine on all modern x86 CPU types. The only major limitation
for the existing 32-bit Windows builds is that they can only use 4GB of RAM
at once. Let us know if you need assistance with anything. I'm working
on setting up a build box for 64-bit Windows, but COVID has slowed
my efforts there since I'm under lockdown like everyone else. I'm preparing
another build box at home now.

However, looking at the VMD website I see that 1.9.3 explicitly mentions 32-bit processor compatibility for Windows. I had only heard of issues with putting VMD on Macs with Catalina for this reason - would I not be able to install VMD on this Windows machine as well? I just wanted to ask and be sure before I download something that may not work in the first place.
