    EDIUS is a 32-bit application...

    Is there an error message displayed?

    Also, your system specs would help immensely.

            Edius should be installed in "Program Files (x86)" (x86 = 32bit programs)

            all 64 bit programs are installed in "Program Files"

            there is no x64 folder in Win7

              If it took an hour for app like EDIUS to open, you likely have one or more of the following:
              • Malware/virus/etc (run antivirus scan, I like Trend's online scanner)
              • Insufficient memory (check Task Manager)
              • A failing hard drive (now is a good time to back up critical files)
              • Insufficient cooling (check BIOS hardware monitor, or diagnostic program)
              • Filesystem corruption (run CHKDSK /F on your drives)
              • An extremely fragmented and/or full hard drive (check capacity, defragment)

                  Actually, there is NO distinction to Windows. You can put a 64 bits program in "Program Files (x86)" or a 32 bits program in "Program Files" - and it will still run. The program attributes (whether 32 bits or 64 bits) are embedded in the EXE file itself.

                    I know

                    but what I am trying to say is that the installers.exe know where to install according to their own DNA

                      If the installer is well-behaved and queries the OS for the "Program Files" location then it'll get the proper Program Files for 64-bit or Program Files (x86) for 32-bit applications.

                      Some older/ill-behaved installers have hardcoded paths, which is bad. You usually don't see it much for Program Files, but it happens semi-often for the user profile - trying to write directly to C:\Documents and Settings for example.
