    I built a Windows XP Pro x64 system for a user, and now he is inquiring about
    installing WOW64 on the system to run 32-bit applications. I thought XP x64
    still ran the 32-bit applications, so what is the purpose/benefits of this
    program?

  3. WOW64 is already there - it's how XP x64 can run 32-bit applications.
