The new 2021-22 Windows Secure Browser v. 14.0 has been upgraded from 32 bit to 64 bit. Since Secure Browser 14.0 installs to a different folder than 12.5, Secure Browser 12.5 will not automatically uninstall and will need to be uninstalled manually. However, failure to uninstall Secure Browser 12.5 will not interfere with Secure Browser 14.0 performance or the ability of machines with both versions installed to test.
While having the 32 bit Secure Browser will not negatively impact the current year’s 64 bit browser, it is recommended that it be removed from student testing devices to minimize any confusion. The “How to Uninstall the Secure Browser” section of the Configurations, Troubleshooting, and Advanced Secure Browser Installation Guide for Windows provides details for how to uninstall the Secure Browser via the User Interface or Command Line.Please contact the Help Desk with any questions.
