Can anyone please tell me if this version is 16 or 32 bit? I need to know if I'm still going to be able to use it when I upgrade to Windows 10 64 bit. I also need to know if I'll be able to use Garritan Studio v2.0 and all the associated GPO software?

Many thanks.

It is 64 bit and GPO 2 is quite old, so the SoundMaps will not work with GPO 2.

Sorry, but it's certainly not 64 bit! I know that for sure - for one thing, it's far too old to be 64 bit, and for another it runs on my 32 bit version of Windows 10! I just want to know if it will run on the 64 bit Windows 10 after I've upgraded - if it's 32 bit, it will, but if it's 16 bit, it won't.

Sorry, misunderstood.
I was talking about Overture 5.

You will definitely need to upgrade Overture and the Aria player for GPO.
I do not know if the Aria player will read the old GPO 2.

I stopped using GPO 5 a while back. I’m surprised Don didn’t use this opportunity to promote his ASO product. It is a very useful, easy to use and inexpensive sample library that behaves well with the free Kontakt Player. Pricewise your GPO update would probably cost about the same as Amadeus Symphonic Orchestra which is excellent value for the money.

Thanks for the replies. At present I'm happily using Overture 3.5.1 SE with GPO (2, I presume, as it says 2nd edition on the manual). I need to upgrade my OS from 32 to 64 bit Windows 10, and I'm just trying to find out whether my present setup will continue to work. I'm satisfied now that Overture will be OK, so I just need to know if the GPO files/samples etc will still be usable? I'm not really interested in buying later versions of either at the moment.

I should have added that I'm using Garritan Studio 2.0 and would like to continue with that.
