Doubt it. They have two versions of java though, 32 and 64. I'd say get java for what your system is, and that's 32 bit.
NO, I'VE NEVER HAD KUMQUAT JUICE....yet.
I'll update this sig when I do!

It doesn't say you need to have it, it's just recommended. And for the OP, no it will not work.
I make things, that do stuff.

32 is lower than 64. you have 32. therefore you cant use 64.

That concludes my math lesson for today.

Ok I am about to teach you guys a little something about computers. For Window Operating Systems, there are two bit types to choose from. 32(x86) bit and 64 bit. The differences between the two are pretty self explanatory. 32 bit is lower and needs less requirements to have programs run. 64 is the opposite. In conclusion, 32 bit programs can be ran on a 64 bit operating system, but 64 bit programs can not be ran on a 32 bit. If you are running a 64 bit OS, then downloading 32 bit program versions will place the programming files in C:\Program Filesx86. This is the folder of your HDD(Hard drive) that will store all 32 bit programs. 32 bit operating systems will not have this folder because it can only store 32 bit programs. There's my tech lesson. Do with it what you will :)
