Are you using a 64-bit version of Windows? Just because your
computer is 64-bit does not mean its operating system is 64-bit, nor
does it need to be. Do not get a 64-bit version of GhostScript or
anything else if your operating system is 32-bit.

If you're not sure about the "bit" of your OS, right-click on "My
Computer" or "Computer" and then on Properties and the screen that
comes up should tell you whether it's 32-bit or 64-bit.
