Default Sower for 32 Bit ?

Hi all. Do you know if the SOWER extension (Step Sequencer Style MIDI Editor) works in 32 Bit systems ? Do I need a different installer ? - there's only one Windows installer in the Reaper Stash.
I have it running on my 64 Bit Laptop okay.
But I run my multi I/O system on a stand alone 32 Bit XP machine (don't laugh - it's for hardware compatibility :-).
Have "installed" it on there and I can see the files in the relevant folders.
But it doesn't show up under Extensions.
I do have the 32 Bit SWS extension and that shows up under Extensions as expected.
Advice / Knowledge appreciated.
Thanks for reading.

So looking at this more closely I see that it's a single installer for 32 and 64 bit.
The dll seems to be in the correct path/folder and compared that to working laptop installation. SWS info appears under Extensions so guess that is installed properly. The other extensions are also listed. But no Sower.
Any pointers ? Or it just doesn't run under XP and I need to go a different way.
Thanks for reading.

...I can confirm that 32bit works fine.(Windows 7 32bit) Kenny Gioia explains very well

Thanks for that confirmation. I think I've watched those videos but will check when back on laptop. There's no real difference in installing on either 32 or 64 I think. And as I said I have it on a 64 bit system fine. So am thinking it's a problem under XP. For context was looking for alternative to Megababy step sequencer.
If wondering why still on XP on the big setup. Audio I/O doesn't work post XP. Well not quite true - it will apparently function with Win7 but only if no more than 2Meg memory 🙄 so that's not really useful.
Thanks again.
