    I am sure Thoeg is right.
    When I downloaded the files from 64bit Win8 Ent the download time was 7 hrs (I have a max .75 MB speed as I live way out in the country)
    Downloading from 32bit Win 7 says it will take 5 3/4hrs at the same speed - so size is much smaller which seems consistent with other download comparisons I've seen for 32bit vs 64bit.

    I think the 'Setup.exe' checks your system before downloading the files, so gets the right ones for you.

    The upgrade download is not a ISO, setup files only.
