Hugo on Win7 64 Bit


I am new to this forum, so please pardon my ignorance.

I tried to download the latest release v0.15 for Windows. “”

after pasting the hugo executable to bin folder, I ran “hugo help” and it shows me the below message.
“This version of D:\Hugo\bin\hugo.exe is not compatible with the version of Windo
ws you’re running. Check your computer’s system information to see whether you n
eed a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the
software publisher.”

Hi Kalyan,

All I can comment is that I am also new (2 weeks experience) and my following the instructions works well… Are you sure that you are on Win64? (pardon my ignorance in this case :slight_smile: )

Good luck! Wouter

Hi Kalyan,

you can check if your Windows system is 32-bit or 64-bit via commandline

C:\Users\$UID>wmic os get osarchitecture

And 64bit-systems should run 32bit binary without any hassle


Thanks @hugon00b and @wouter for responding!

Yes, I was too ignorant! I was working on 2 machines one 64 bit and other 32 bit. That was the reason behind confusion. Thanks again.
