It's apparently for both x86 and x86_64 (AMD64).

It was for sure since I had it a while ago.

Personally I prefer VMplayer but Virtual PC and even bochs and qemu are usable.

Thanks Brian for pointing that out. I did check that link previously many times but I assumed wrongly that x86 also means for 64 bit architecture

When you pointed that out, I read the statement twice and then realized my fault.


jefro,
Thanks for bothering.
I had not looked into Virtual PC, bochs and qemu, but now I will.
