Windows 10 Migration from 32 Bit to 64 Bit

My work laptop (64-bit processor) needs to be migrated from Windows 10 32-bit to Windows 10 64-bit. I have several SAS EG projects with embedded codes only. Will these projects work fine as-is when I reinstall SAS EG on the 64-bit Windows. There is no change on the sever side.

 

The above also applies to MS Excel Add-in.

 

SAS EG Version: 7.13 (7.100.3.5408) (32-bit)

SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office: 7.13 (7.100.3.5386) (32-bit)

Server Side SAS Version: 9.04.01M4P110916

Server Side Operating System:   LIN X64

 

Also will the SAS depo that I currently have work fine and install on 64-bit, or do I need a new depo? Can I verify this?

If the only change is a switch from Windows 10 32-bit to 64-bit then in theory there should not be a problem. However I'm a fan of having a plan B where possible. Do you have a fellow SAS user with a PC that remains on Windows 10 32-bit? If so I would check to see if the EG projects work on his/her PC before the upgrade just in case something goes wrong.

Dear @SASKiwi,

Do you mean I have a fellow SAS user with a PC that remains on Windows 10 64-bit?

I am the first one.

@Shakir_Juolay well actually just any other PC with the same version and bitness of EG as you have, so you can still access your EG projects if something goes wrong with the upgrade of your PC.
