    well it will be faster but most programs do not still have 64bit versions.... u will get all the drivers n all but u are most likely to run the programs in 32 bit mode even after u install winxp 64...

    Ya nearly all will run smoothly. And 16 bit softwares will not work even 32 bit softwares having 16 bit install will not work.
    Turbo C++ is a 16 bit software

    The DOS based Turbo C++ compilers will not work in Win XP 64 bit.
    You will need some compiler like Bloodshed C++ to write and compile your programs.
