Windows Folders

Wed Apr 21, 2021 5:44 pm

Looking at the GUI there are 4 folder shown below "Windows", they are System 16, System, System 64 and Fonts.

First off, what on earth are they? I've never heard of System 16 and Windows no longer supports 16 bit applications.

Is System 64 an acronym for SYSWoW64? If not, what is it?

If not, how would I add files to SySWoW64?

Hi Ian,

Please check the "Paths of the folders in the "Files and Folders" Page" article where you can find all the information about the folders from the "Files and Folders" page.

In order to add files to the "SysWOW64" folder, you need to place them in the "System" folder from the Advanced Installer project.
