Existing Eclipse project details :
Eclipse platform (3.0 Mx to 3.3.1) OS 32 bit - SWT version 32 bit

1. How to run on -
Eclipse 4.6.2 on OS 64 bit
OR any latest version of Eclipse

2. Is it possible to run properly existing 32 bit SWT to 64bit SWT version ?

Hi

1) you can just
- launch latest Eclipse
- let it create a new workspace
- import all old projects into the new workspace (File, Import, General, Existing Projects into Workspace)

2) if you didn't use any low-level 32-bit specific OS calls, then you should have no problem.
You will have to fix the launch, since most probably it contains a specific win 32 bit fragment.

In general, given the big gap between 3.3 and 4.6 APIs, you may have to fix several calls, but it depends a lot on the specific usage of the platform and other frameworks.
