    The 3300 was a 32 bit applaince and anything newer than 9.2 is 64 bit.

    The releases previous to 9.0.x is 8.3.x which is why that is mentioned in the release notes.

    The information you are referring is meant for those that are moving from 32 bit to 64 bit than needing to get upgraded to the most recent version.

    You should only import from and to the same versions and Windows starts out in 64 bit around 9.0.x versions.
