Subject [jira] [Commented] (DRILL-4239) Update documentation to reflect 64bit requirement to run Drill on Windows.
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2016 16:30:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4239?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15096483#comment-15096483

Andries Engelbrecht commented on DRILL-4239:

Kristine Hahn the issue here relates only to actually running Drill on a 32bit Windows machine,
which is a poor platform choice with likely minimal user adoption (compared to 64bit Windows).

However the ODBC drivers is a different topic as it for client systems, the 32bit and 64bit
ODBC drivers works on a 64bit Windows machine as certain client software may need a 32bit
ODBC driver.

> Winutils.exe has been compiled to run on the 64 bit version of windows.  For this reason,
some part of the documentation that suggest that Drill can run on 32bit Windows must be fixed.
 Furthermore, although few user run 64 bit windows these days, it would be helpful to make
this requirement more explicit.  In particular, rapid installation of Windows on VirtualBox
will often result in 32 bit version being installed by default, since it's the preselected
default during installation process.
