    Visio Viewer 2016: 32 Bit or 64 Bit?

    I need to install Visio Viewer 2016 on my Surface Book to view (I don't need to edit them) some Visio documents I created years ago. Do I need the 32 or 64 Bit edition of Visio Viewer? My copy of Windows is 64 Bit, but my copy of Office 2016 is 32 Bit (except I'm using 64 Bit for all the Azure, Skype for Business, and SharePoint PowerShell stuff for Office 365).

    Thanks!

    32-bit. You can't mix bittedness of Office apps.

    Sounds good. I'll grab 32 bit. Yep, that's the link I'm referring to. It just asks if you want 32 or 64 and I was a little thrown off at first. :-)

    Microsoft recommends using the 32bit version of Office (there are some exceptions). Seems counter-intuitive but when has that ever mattered.
