    Hello. So I have the next problem. My windows is 32 bit and I can't install unity 2017. Instead I use unity 5.6.
    In the future I will be able to use this version without messing my project?
    P.S. I can't buy another PC or to install windows 64 :)))))

    Hello Tempest,

    Yes you will be able to launch your project with the 64 bits version of the engine without any worries.

    Anyway if you use an external library (dll files in a Plugins folder) you will have to be sure to also have a 64 bits version.

    Also when you will want to upgrade Unity (5.6 -> 2017), be sure to keep a copy of your project in case things goes wrong to compare where Unity messed with your project if it did.

    When you upgrade your project, Unity have a system that recognize deprecated code and ask if it can replace it by an up-to-date version but sometime it's not that simple so you will have to look into it to do it yourself.

    Aside that, 32 bits -> 64 bits on the same Unity version is not a problem.
    You can even build your project in 64 bits by using the 32 bits editor.
