    Just go to Control Panel>System, you'll fond it there. In 32bit windows you can't run 64bit programs but can do so if it's other way around.

    I'm having the same issue as Titom921 when trying to install PowerISO. I have the 64 bit Windows. I also tried downloading the 32 bit version of PowerISO, but I still received the "Error writing to file sp-dowloader.exe" message. Any advice?

    Works fine here. I don't have spdownloader.

    Did you uncheck all the crapware it tries to install? You might have to hit "custom install" to uncheck them.

    There are also a couple of "Decline" buttons to hit, iirc

    When I first tried to install it, I selected "custom install" and declined the extra crapware. The installation was aborted halfway through when it gave the sp-dowloader.exe error message. Now, I get that error message as soon as I try to run the PowerISO6-x64.exe file

    Shame, poweriso is a good program.

    There are others. Winiso also works well, no added crapware. WinISO Standard 6 - Edit, Create, Convert, ISO Software, Burn ISO and make Bootable ISO
