I don't know how to tell, but I'd guess 16-bit because they're touting,
"QuickBooks is now optimized for 32-bit to work within Windows 95, 98, or
NT 4.0 environments."  Sounds like a good reason to upgrade to the
QuickBooks 6.0 release.

My Win95 use is almost exclusively through WinVNC from a Linux vncviewer,
and I have run several Quickbooks sessions start to finish that way; if it
was going to get into the registry, it would have done so by now.

Thanks for the help and advice!
