Some clarification around the 32-Bit & 64-Bit usage with Qlik Sense
many of you are posting questions about this topic and I thought I will summarize this topic once again in order to make sure that everyone has the same understanding.
There are two different versions of Qlik Sense:
Qlik Sense Desktop
Qlik Sense (including the Server Version)
Qlik Sense Desktop has been released last week and is only possible to use on a Windows 7, Windows 8 or 8.1 in a 64-Bit Version. Qlik Sense will be released later this year with the ability to use Server based development. The Client is exactly the same as on all of your devices and supported browsers but of course you will be able to connect to your Server environment with a 64-Bit or 32-Bit browser from a 64-Bit or 32-Bit Client and develop / use your apps from here.
Below you can find a link with all supported browsers that you can use in order to connect your Client to the Server.
Re: Some clarification around the 32-Bit & 64-Bit usage with Qlik Sense
Most hypervisors to my knowledge supports running 64-bit VMs, if your host hardware supports VT-64. This regardless if the host OS is 32-bit or not. I.e. it is possible to run a 64-bit VM in for example VMWare Workstation installed on Windows 7 32-bit as long as the hardware supports VT-64.
To check your hardware you can run various tools from the vendor, WMI-scripts, google the model etc. You also (in most cases) need to activate 64-bit support in the BIOS. Again check with your hardware vendor on how to do this as it varies depending on BIOS.
If your hardware does not support VT-64, i.e. it's a 32-bit CPU or an old 64-bit CPU, there's no good way of running 64-bit applications in a VM. Although a hypervisor like QEMU do allow you to emulate a 64-bit VM on a 32-bit CPU performance wouldn't be good and I would certainly not recommend going that route except for experimenting
